“Since day one, we always knew we wanted to expand our service to continue restoring non-stop flights to cities in our region that had historically been connected,” Trey Fayard, GLO’s founder and CEO, said in a news release. “On GLO, we want to make travel easy, convenient and comfortable, and we’re doing that through our seasonal service to one of the greatest beach regions in the world — Destin-Fort Walton Beach.”

GLO is the second carrier in the past month to announce in the past month to announce new service to the Northwest Florida airport. Allegiant Air announced in January that it will begin flights to Destin-Fort Walton in May.
