The Branson Airport began service to five new locations starting today Monday. KSMU’s Theresa Bettmann talks with airport officials and has this report.
Earlier this year Branson Air Express announced that it would be expanding service from the Branson Airport. These new destinations include Austin, Houston, Des Moines, Nashville, Shreveport and Gulfport. Jeff Burke is the executive director for the Branson Airport.
"We're very excited about today. On February 14th we announced that Branson Air Express would be flying to several [new] cities this summer from Branson. Today was the first of these flights from those cities." said Burke.
Burke says that the Branson Airport now operates as many as 11 commercial flights a day, as well as general aviation and private flights. Prices for many of these flights start as low as $39 for one-way. Burke says that the expanded service connects Branson to over 100 destinations all over the country, and that there are plans to add more destinations in the near future.
"We'll be looking at expanding service on Branson Air Express further this fall, and adding a couple more flights." Burke said.
In addition to Branson Air Express the Branson Airport provides commercial service through Air Tran Airways and Frontier Airlines. For KSMU News, I’m Theresa Bettmann.
