Via Airlines announced nonstop service to two new destinations from Memphis, making Memphis International Airport a key part of their ongoing expansion efforts throughout the mid-west and the northeastern U.S.
The new destinations include nonstop service to Pittsburgh and Austin, Texas, with the first flight taking off from Memphis June 25, 2019.
The new nonstop flights in and out of Memphis will operate four times each week on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays through the Memphis International Airport (MEM) on ViaAirlines’ 50-seat Embraer ERJ-145 jets.
As one of the fastest growing airlines in the U.S., Via Airlines is known for nonstop, low-cost, high-value flights where passengers are treated as guests. With the ERJ-145 jet’s 2:1 seatconfiguration, no guest is subject to the dreaded middle seat and can fly comfortably for significantly less than the cost of other travel options.
Further enriching Memphis’ economy, the new high-demand, nonstop service from the reliable, well-established airline provides a huge boon for business and leisure travelers alike.
“Memphis is a great city and we’re excited to introduce nonstop service to and from Austin and Pittsburgh,” said Dominic Acevedo, Via Airlines’ Vice President of Flight Operations. “Nonstopservice not only helps travelers move to and from these destinations faster and more economically than existing options, but also ensures the opportunity for our own steady growth and continued provision of reliable service for the Memphis market and beyond,” addedDominic.
Now serving a total of 19 cities across the U.S., the Memphis route announcement is a part ofthe established carrier’s largest expansion to date. Three new focus cities were announced at the same time as Memphis and Pittsburgh today, including Hartford, Conn., Birmingham, Ala. and Raleigh, N.C.
