COMING TO LITTLE ROCK: Via Air
Clinton National Airport
has announced that Via Airlines
will begin offering nonstop air service between Little Rock and Austin,
Texas beginning April 29.
It will use 50-seat Embraer jets. Flights will be available daily, except Saturday. You can check fares at the website
. I plugged in a flight down on April 30 with a May 1 return and got a $98.59 fare in each direction, just under $200 roundtrip.
The new flight is in addition to new nonstop service announced this year to Denver and Washington.
Via is apparently making a big push to serve Austin from several cities.
