The new flights operated by Elite Airways and Buzz Airways will replace service previously operated by other carriers. The flight schedule to all markets has been designed to allow customers to book separate tickets on other airlines in order to connect to/from popular gateways through all four cities.
“Branson is a strong market, and is a test case for us. We believe what is happening at many of our nations smaller airports is creating an opportunity for Elite Airways,” stated John Pearsall, Chief Executive Officer of Elite Airways. “Expanding our schedule and operating in these markets makes a lot of sense. Other carriers such as Southwest Airlines and Frontier Airlines have proven the demand in Branson. This new schedule will give passengers lots of choices and access to the national air space system. If things continue to go well in Branson, we could further increase the capacity in this market as well as other areas of the country primarily in markets that have lost service similarly to Branson,” said Pearsall.
Opening its doors May of 2009, Branson Airport LLC is the first privately developed and operated commercial service airport in the United States. Located in the heart of the Ozarks and centrally located in the Midwest, the airport also boasts a state of the art FBO, Branson JetCenter and a full service travel agency.
