Direct Air adding 2nd route out of Toledo
Trips to Myrtle Beach available twice weekly Frankl


Direct Air has yet to fly a plane on its new route between Toledo and southwest Florida, but already it has decided to add a second destination from Toledo Express Airport.

Twice-weekly flights between Toledo and Myrtle Beach, S.C., will begin March 6, the airline and the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority announced yesterday.

Direct Air also announced that service on its route between Toledo and Punta Gorda, Fla., scheduled to begin Nov. 24, will continue through at least May 16. The airline previously had committed to fly the route only through March 2.

A top airline official said additional Direct Air routes from Toledo are being discussed, including service to the New York area.

KALAMAZOO -- Direct Air airline executives on Friday announced new flights from Kalamazoo/Battle Creek International Airport to Myrtle Beach, S.C.

Flights are expected to begin during the first two weeks in March, company president Ed Warneck said.

DC-9, 105-seat airplanes will be operated by USA Jet Airlines. They will fly twice a week, on Fridays and Mondays, directly

I didn't see that coming. No offense to USA Jet, but I would think people would drive to 2 or so hours down to TOL. I mean a converted DC-9 back to passenger ops or a nice new Virgin America A320 for the same price  scratchchin

This DirectAir thing has me very skeptical.

Allentown (ABE) is advertising the hell out of DirectAir flights to Myrtle Beach and Fort Myers. However, the DirectAir site claims "Flights are Public Charters operated by Virgin America". The ABE billboards show old generation 737s, the DirectAir website shows A320s, and the article posted above claims DC-9s. Also, the signage here says they are a "Luxury Seating Airline with cheap fares to Florida and Myrtle Beach". They are a LCC, no??

I'm confused!

Direct Air is not really even an airline per se. They're more or less a vacation marketer as the Direct Air "flights" are charters primarily for vacation packages booked through Direct Air & Tours. They've changed charter operators several times since starting up. They started off using Sky King, then moved to Xtra Airways. They've also used JetBlue for their services as well. USA Jet has been operating charters for them for a bit as well. No telling how long VX will stick around as their charter operator.
