USA Today Report on Branson Airport

Just saw this article in the USA Today. Seems that AirTran has signed on to be first airline at the new airport.

I received this email today from the airport.

Branson Airport is proud to announce our partnership with AirTran Airways.

Beginning May 11th, 2009, AirTran Airways, which ranked number one among all airlines in the 2008 Airline Quality Rating study, will begin daily nonstop service to Atlanta with an introductory fare of only $99 one way, connecting to over 50 major destinations throughout the US, Mexico and Puerto Rico. Exclusively from the New Branson Airport.

The following is from the USA today article: "Those who fly usually land at Springfield-Branson National Airport, which is 55 miles north of Branson, or Drake Field in Fayetteville, Ark., which is 108 miles south."

Drake Field, now Fayetteville Municipal Airport has not had commercial service for 10 years, since Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport, XNA, opened at Highfill (about 30 miles northwest of Fayetteville. Some people still go to the wrong airport to catch a flight because some airlines still have only Fayetteville listed as the location.
