Those flying out of Eppley Airfield in Omaha will soon have more options. World Group’s Executive Vice President of Marketing Jeff Beals says airlines have added more non-stop flights in and out of Eppley which is good for business.
On Monday, Allegiant announced they will add non-stop flights from Omaha to Orlando on November 5th. This follows an announcement that Alaska Airlines will offer a non-stop flight from Omaha to Portland in February.
Southwest Airlines also made a big announcement last week they are adding a non-stop service to Dallas and Tuesday they announced direct flights to Washington DC will start in March of 2016.
Beals says the additions are critically important for business development and recruitment of companies to Nebraska.
