With the help of air choice one, Mckellar-Sipes Regional Airport is connecting Jackson to the world and the world to Jackson through flights to Atlanta starting today.
Steve Smith says, “Shane and I, the owner of Air Choice One, when we first started talking about them becoming our carrier, he sat in the terminal and he said I see us going to Atlanta”
Mckellar-Sipes partnership with Air Choice One began almost three years ago. Now, they have created new possibilities for both business and leisure travelers. The first flight left today at noon and a lot of excitement filled the airport.
“The exciting thing today is that Air Choice One has started flying to Atlanta. And that's to Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson airport, that's ATL the big airport. So we're extremely excited about that.”
Mckellar Sipes Regional Airport and Air Choice One are reaching new heights today. Not only with their flight to Atlanta but with bringing new opportunities to the city of Jackson.
Shane Storz commented, “We're excited about the future news we've been hearing about new industry coming in so we're going to monitor the growth and try to grow the air service along with the economic development that Jackson's seeing over the years.”
Jackson now has access to locations all over the world using Atlanta as a connection.
“So if you've got business going that way or you need to go across to England or Europe, Atlanta’s your jumping off place,” said Smith.
Air Choice One will provide a trip there and a trip back every day with fares starting at only $45 one way.
