NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A new airline will soon by flying out of Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport.

New Orleans-owned and based Glo (GLOH) said Tuesday it will begin non-stop service to three cities in November.

Glo’s public charter flights, operated by Corporate Flight Management, Inc., will offer two daily, non-stop flights from Louis Armstrong New Orleans International to Shreveport, Little Rock, Arkansas, and Memphis, Tennessee. It will offer one flight between New Orleans and the three cities on Saturday and Sunday.

New Orleans resident Trey Fayard, Founder and CEO of Glo, said in a news release that the airline was created because existing air travel options in the Gulf and Mid-South regions are incredibly limited.

“Too often, both business and leisure travelers are forced into multi-stop flights or overreliance on road travel, often resulting in wasted time and productivity,” Fayard said. “Glo non-stop service will have New Orleanians out to their destinations first thing in the morning, and can have them back home by the same evening, ensuring the least time spent traveling.”

“Glo’s announcement today is evident of the opportunities that abound within our great city,” said New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu. “This New Orleans-based operation is creating more job opportunities and better connectivity within our region that will further benefit our community.”

New Orleans Aviation Board Chairwoman, Cheryl Teamer, said Glo is a welcomed addition to the airport’s list of air service providers serving Armstrong International, and “we look forward to the increase in service they will bring to our community.”

CFM will operate 30-passenger Saab 340B aircraft on Glo’s new routes.
