LOUISIANA, THIS IS WDSU NEWS AT 4:00. CAMILLE: LOUIS ARMSTRONG INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT WELCOMED ANOTHER AIRLINE TO ITS FAMILY. “GLO AIRLINES” WILL SOON START NON-STOP FLIGHT SERVICE TO THREE CITIES IN THE SOUTHERN REGION OF THE COUNTRY. WDSU REPORTER KELSEY DAVIS HAS DETAILS ON THE CITIES YOU’LL SOON BE ABLE TO MAKE QUICK TRIPS TO ON GLO AIRLINES. KELSEY: STARTING NOVEMBER 15TH, GLO AIRLINES WILL PROVIDE NON-STOP FLIGHTS TO MEMPHIS, LITTLE ROCK AND SHREVEPORT. THESE ARE DESTINATIONS THAT AIRLINE LEADERS SAY WERE IMPORTANT FOR CUSTOMERS TO BE ABLE TO REACH IN A SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME, ESPECIALLY MEMBERS OF THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY. GLO IS A BRAND NEW, NEW ORLEANS OWNED AND BASED COMPANY. STARTING IN NOVEMBER, GLO WILL BEGIN NON-STOP SERVICE TO AND FROM LITTLE ROCK, MEMPHIS AND SHREVEPORT ON 30-PASSENGER AIRCRAFTS WITH APPROXIMATE ONE-HOUR TRAVEL TIME TO EACH CITY. THE COMPANY’S FOUNDER AND CEO TREY FAYARD SAYS GLO WILL CREATE ABOUT 30 DIRECT JOBS, LIKE PILOTS, FLIGHT ATTENDANTS AND CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVES AND 110 INDIRECT JOBS THAT WILL ALL BE BASED IN NEW ORLEANS. FAYARD SAYS BEFORE LAUNCHING THE COMPANY, HE PUT 20,000 MILES ON A RENTAL CAR DOING MARKET RESEARCH, TALKING TO PEOPLE ACROSS THE REGION ABOUT THEIR AIR SERVICE WANTS AND NEEDS THAT ARE NOT CURRENTLY OFFERED. HE HOPES GLO AIRLINES WILL PROVIDE WHAT THEY WERE LOOKING FOR. THESE CITIES RIGHT NOW ARE BASICALLY NOT REACHABLE, FOR SAY A DAY TRIP. ALL OF OUR SERVICES WILL ALLOW YOU TO GO TO THESE CITIES AND BACK IN THE SAME DAY, CONDUCT YOUR BUSINESS, SEE YOUR FAMILY, WHATEVER YOU LIKE TO DO, CATCH A FOOTBALL GAME AND BE BACK IN TIME FOR DINNER. SO THAT WAS OUR MOTIVATION FOR WHAT WE’RE DOING WITH GLO. KELSEY: GLO AIRLINES WILL BE THE 15TH AIR SERVICE PROVIDER FOR NEW ORLEANS INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT AND WILL BRING THE TOTAL NUMBER OF NON-STOP DESTINATIONS TO 49.
