Southern Airways Express is expanding service from the Memphis area. The company announced Thursday, Sept. 4, new cities to be served from its hub at Olive Branch Airport in Olive Branch, Miss.

Southern is launching several new destinations, adding more flights to Atlanta and upgrading its Destin, Fla., service from seasonal to year-round.

“We are very pleased to be restoring nonstop service from Metropolitan Memphis to three additional cities which the dominant carrier at Memphis International dropped as part of its cuts over the past few years,” said Stan Little, Southern’s chairman and CEO, in a statement.

Over the coming four weeks, Southern Airways will initiate new service from Memphis to Knoxville, Chattanooga, and Jackson, Miss., regional business centers that have not enjoyed air service for the past three years.

“Once again, they will be available by a 60- to 90-minute direct flight from Memphis,” said Little.

In addition to the new service to Chattanooga, Knoxville, and Jackson, Southern will also be increasing service to Atlanta/DeKalb-Peachtree Airport from five to six days per week starting Sunday, Sept. 7. The Memphis-Atlanta shuttle will operate every day except Saturday. Atlanta’s PDK Airport will also see the addition of weekend flights to and from Oxford, Miss.

In addition, Southern’s flights from Memphis to Destin, a popular destination for Memphis-area vacationers, will be enhanced from seasonal to year-round service effective immediately. Weekend connections from Destin to Oxford also will be upgraded to year-round service.

Memphis to Jackson/Madison, Miss., will begin Friday, Sept. 5; Memphis to Chattanooga will begin Oct. 1; and Memphis to Knoxville service will launch Oct. 2.
