Legacy Airways (Lakeland) is a new on-demand charter airline in Florida now operating its first SAAB 340B.

On April 17, 2018 the company issued this statement about the addition of the first SAAB 340B:

Central Florida-based Legacy Airways is pleased to announce their continued growth with the addition of two additional SAAB-340B 30 passenger turbo-prop regional aircraft to its ever-growing fleet.

The announcement for Legacy’s expansion comes shortly after the carrier completed a very successful year of operating a full schedule of charter flights for collegiate sports teams, numerous casinos, corporate, as well as group incentive trips. The two aircraft will join the company’s fleet in May and July of this year with Legacy Airways having options to add even more aircraft by years end.

“Legacy Airways continues to look to the future and has positioned itself for continued growth and success” said Daryl Hicks, Director of Operations, “The addition of the two planes will not only allow the company to exceed the demands of our current and future needs and clients, but as well allow Legacy Airways the ability to further expand into other projects which includes a focus on the development of EAS (Essential Air Service) routes for many small rural communities around the country, hotel and resort programs, and the expansion of Legacy DayCation packages to many top tourist destinations.”

The SAAB 340B aircraft is the foundation of the Legacy Airways fleet and has a long track record in the aviation industry as being one of the most reliable, safe, and cost-effective aircrafts to operate. Because of their perfect 30-seat passenger configuration and baggage carrying abilities, the SAAB 340B fills the void between choices of a smaller 8-9 seat commuter aircraft and 50 seat regional jets for those that are interested in chartering with Legacy Airways.

Founded in 2012, Legacy Airways LLC carries an FAA 135 certification and Argus Gold rating status for charter air operators. The company is based out of Lakeland, Florida and operates a fleet of 30-seat SAAB 340B turbo-prop aircraft. Legacy Airways prides itself on continually striving to maintain the highest levels of safety, quality, and guest experience.

Working through Legacy Flights LLC, the charter airline is operating weekend charter trips from Lakeland to Key West and back. This is the only passenger service from LAL (between Orlando and Tampa). The fare is $199 roundtrip. The first flight started on June 2, 2018.

The company hopes to also start trips from LAL to Bimini in the Bahamas.

GLO (Corporate Flight Management) SAAB 340B N220MJ (Grd)(GLO)(LR)

GLO (New Orleans) has formally announced its launch of proposed scheduled charter flights.

According to the new company:

The New Orleans-owned and -based startup public charter operator will offer a quality alternative to business and leisure travelers who have been relegated to multi-stop flights and exhausting road travel due to an absence of daily air service to multiple Gulf and Mid-South destinations.

GLO’s public charter flights, operated by Corporate Flight Management, Inc. (CFM), will introduce daily, nonstop service from Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY). GLO will begin round-trip air service in November to Little Rock’s Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport (LIT), Memphis International Airport (MEM) and Shreveport Regional Airport (SHV).

In anticipation of its launch in New Orleans, GLO will offer promotional one-way $189 GLO Saver fares (tax included).

Due to GLO’s economical fare structure, travelers will realize a cost-effective alternative to driving to destinations served by GLO. Business travelers will see an exponential increase in productivity, and can enjoy face-to-face meetings with customers and partners who until now were in destinations too far to drive and visit with regularity. In addition, GLO’s leisure travelers will be able to enjoy more of their time visiting their destinations due to the dramatic reduction in travel time.

GLO will offer daily nonstop, round-trip service from Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY) to each destination. The daily flight timetables are as follows:

GLO 11.2015 schedule

CFM will operate 30-passenger Saab 340B aircraft on GLO’s new routes.

On-board service from a flight attendant will include complimentary snacks and beverages from the regions GLO will service.

GLO Trey Fayard

GLO’s founder, Louisiana native Trey Fayard (above), experienced this lack of connectivity firsthand. He has spent more time than he would like to remember behind the wheel, traveling to locations that should be connected by non-stop air service.

Founded in 2013, GLO is addressing these travel needs, offering multiple daily non-stop flights between its base in New Orleans and Shreveport, Little Rock and Memphis.

To book flights and find out more, please visit FlyGLO.com.

All GLO flights are 14 CFR Part 380 public charters marketed by FlyGLO LLC d/b/a GLO and operated by Corporate Flight Management, Inc. (CFM) see Prospectus PC-15-188.
