Vision Airlines Flies the Destin Flight From Memphis Area

A few weeks ago I did a post about vision airlines flying into the Destin/Fort Walton area with regular flights.

In the Memphis commercial appeal this morning I read about Vision airlines choosing Tunica,Mississippi as their Memphis area hub for their flights to the Destin area.

Here is an excerpt from that article:

Vision is offering introductory fares of $39 each way between Tunica and Fort Walton Beach/Destin. The sale, available only at, ends at 11 p.m. Sunday for travel between June 1 and July 15. Reg­ular fares are $99 each way. Baggage fees vary. Service will be aboard a 32-seat Dornier 328 turboprop. Flights will depart Sundays, Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Here is a link to an earlier post that has the other hubs for flights to the Destin area aboard Vision Airlines.

Update: 6/29/2013

We now have airline service from Memphis to Destin once again. 

Here is a link to Southern Airways Express.

This is big news for Memphis and Destin. This small airline flies Cessna 208 Caravans and Grand Caravans. There are two small airports that they use in Memphis and they fly right into Destin's small airport (DTS) where I have been flying my plane into.

With advance notice, Enterprize and Hertz rental cars are available there at the terminal.Here is the website for the terminal and rental cars.

P.S. My condo at the Pelican Beach Resort is located only about a mile from the airport so call or text me direct at 731-589-7841 to get reservations.
