Vision Airlines (Atlanta) in the wake of the sudden shutdown of Direct Air (Myrtle Beach) added seasonal service in March from Rockford and Springfield, IL to Fort Myers (Direct Air served nearby Punta Gorda from both cities). This temporary service is due to end at the end of April.
The airline is also seasonally serving Freeport on Grand Bahama Island from Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood, Louisville, Raleigh/Durham, Richmond and Baltimore/Washington. Service to FPO is expected to end on April 30 when the airline will shift its focus to a summer destination, probably the Northwest Florida Regional Airport.
Vision Airlines started its new service to Freeport on November 11, 2011. Vision suspended operations at Northwest Florida Regional Airport, a summer destination, in February 2012.

Current Route Map: The Vision Route Map is certainly an evolving map, always changing with the seasons and the price of fuel. Many cities previously served have been dropped. It will be interesting to see what cities and routes will be added for the summer season with the higher fuel costs. Unprofitable routes will not be added back.
