Tickets go on sale for newest airline at Hattiesburg Laurel airport

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

This is a news release for the Hattiesburg-Laurel Regional Airport

The Hattiesburg-Laurel Regional Airport Authority (PIB) is proud to announce that ticketing for flights on American Eagle has begun selling.  "Travelers need to go to American Airlines reservations at www.aa.com to book a flight. Use the code "PIB" then choose their destination and the dates for travel," said Tom Heanue, Executive Director.

American Eagle will begin service to the Pine Belt on November 6, 2014 at the 3:40 pm departure. Silver Airways, the current carrier, will continue to serve the Pine Belt until November 5, 2014.

Fares out of PIB to Washington DC, LaGuardia, Chicago and Los Angeles are priced identical to what American offers out of Jackson. PIB to DFW is the same or lower than American out of Jackson "American Eagles' prices are very competitive and travelers should really look at their Regional Airport in their travel decision process," Heanue said. "By the time you factor in parking fees (PIB is free), travel time and mileage to another airport, you may be surprised that your Regional Airport is quite a deal."

The flight schedule for service beginning in November is:

                6:25 am depart from PIB

                7:00 am arrival Meridian (MEI)

                7:25 am depart MEI

                9:15 am arrival Dallas/Ft. Worth (DFW)

 

                12:50 pm depart DFW

                 2:15 pm arrive MEI

                 2:40 pm depart MEI

                 3:15 pm arrive PIB

               3:40 pm depart PIB

               5:15 pm arrive DFW

 

                6:55 pm depart DFW

                8:20 pm arrive MEI

                8:45 pm depart MEI

                9:20 pm arrive PIB

 

"We have had a great amount of enthusiasm from the community in support of this service. My hope is that travelers will take advantage of this increased level of service," Heanue said.
