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:

GLO (green) logo

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.
