It operated flights out of GPT to a few select Southeast markets if i'm not mistaken. I forget exactly how they started but i'm going out on a limb by saying that the flights were casino subsidized. Does anyone remember how long the service lasted and the exact routes flown?

It was always an out of place operation when you look at Reno's overall route network. But it was unique, if anything.


Next trip: MSY-SEA-GEG-SEA-LWS-BOI-PDX-SEA-LAS on AS

I had an old Reno Air timetable that included the Gulf Coast Flyer. From what I remember it flew from GPT to Tampa and Atlanta. Those two I know of for sure. Ft. Lauderdale might possibly have also been included, however, I can't recall!

Prepare doors for departure and cross-check.

That pretty much sums it up best.
