The rooftop wasn’t high enough for the shouting so, how about 35,000 feet?

Last month, Vision Airlines started providing service between the Northwest Florida Regional Airport (VPS), Niagara Falls, NY and Miami. Today they’ve announced direct service between VPS and a total of 19 cites; providing easy access to Florida’s Emerald Coast for many of the nation’s most populous markets. Not since 1999 when JetBlue announced service has there been an airline announcement as big as this.

Founded in 1994 and headquartered in Suwanee, GA, Vision Airlines operates a small fleet of large jets with direct routes serving destinations in the Southeast United States, Texas, and Niagara Falls, NY. Now, VPS is Vision’s most active hub with direct routes to:

Asheville, NC • Atlanta, GA

Baton Rouge, LA • Birmingham, AL

Chattanooga, TN • Columbia, SC

Ft. Myers/Punta Gorda, FL • Greenville/Spartanburg, NC

Huntsville, AL • Knoxville, TN

Little Rock, AR • Louisville, KY

Macon, GA • Miami, FL

Niagara Falls, NY • Orlando/Sanford, FL

Savannah, GA • Shreveport, LA

St. Petersburg/Tampa, FL

So, if you’re headed to Walt Disney World to see Mickey Mouse, Huntsville to visit the Space and Rocket Center, Niagara Falls to see, well, the falls, or if you’re headed to Pensacola, Ft. Walton Beach, Destin, Panama City or anywhere else in the Florida Panhandle, Vision Airlines and VPS are your connection.

In an article posted by USA Today, Vision Airlines’ COO David Meers is quoted as saying “We’ll be flying from cities that have been neglected by large carriers with large aircraft for a number of years… It opens up the ability for people from all these communities to not only go as they normally would (but) to go more frequently,” He goes on to say that “[in the next three years] It’s realistic to expect we’d add cities out west… and we’ll look at the Caribbean and Mexico.”

Whatever the future holds, the present is a gift that Florida’s Emerald Coast is grateful to receive.
