New flights coming to local airport

Good news for jetsetters in South Mississippi and just in time to plan your spring and summer travel arrangements.

United, American, and Delta airlines are adding additional flights at the Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport. These new flights will make it easier for passengers to schedule flights in and out of Houston, Dallas, and Atlanta. This news comes months after the addition of Allegiant Airlines brought the airport new flights to Orlando.

Starting this month, American Airlines will offer an additional flight to Dallas. In June, United will add a flight to Houston while Delta will add another flight to Atlanta. Teckie Hinkebein with Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport said, “This is essentially going to help passengers as they’re planning their spring and summer travel. They will have more flexibility, better connectivity, more chances to get to their final destination. We had a great year last year. We were up seven percent. This year, up to date, we’re up 11 percent. So, we’re very excited about these new flights.”
