Executive Director Edward R. Wuellner reported to Historic City News this morning that ViaAir has added jet airline service on nonstop flights to and from Charlotte, North Carolina.
The Embraer ERJ-145, a premier regional jet aircraft, began flying the St. Augustine to Charlotte route on Sunday, October 2nd and has been well received by passengers.
“We are delighted to see ViaAir has taken note of the fact that people in our region love the ViaAir service,” Wuellner told local news reporters.
And, there was more good news from the Northeast Florida Regional Airport concerning their partnership with ViaAir.
In addition to continuing connecting service to Raleigh Country Memorial Airport (Beckley, WV – BKW), ViaAir now offers supplementary connections to Greenbrier Valley Airport (Lewisburg, WV –LWB) and Mid-Ohio Valley Regional Airport (Parkersburg, WV – PKB). A full schedule breakdown including flight times can be found at www.flyviaair.com.
The new jet seats 50 passengers; up from the 30 seat EMB-120 turboprop. The larger aircraft offers passengers an all jet experience while maintaining the superior customer service passengers have come to expect from ViaAir.
Wuellner told Historic City News, “With these additional seats in our market, I suspect we’ll see even stronger performance between St. Augustine and the cities that ViaAir serves.”
Irit Vizer, President and COO of ViaAir said, “Since we first began service to St. Augustine in December of 2014, both the local community and guests traveling on ViaAir have overwhelmingly embraced our inclusive fares and hassle free travel experience. We are extremely pleased to be able to introduce our jet service to the St. Augustine market which shows our continued dedication and commitment to further developing and providing quality air service to this popular, and historic, vacation destination.”
Fares to and from St. Augustine from Charlotte, NC and Beckley, WV start at just $99.00 one way and $103.50 one way from Lewisburg & Parkersburg WV (inclusive of fees and taxes). Reservations for all flights can be made at FlyViaAir.com or by calling ViaAir’s reservation line at 800-565-5042.
