New Orleans, La.- If you've ever wished you had your own corporate jet, a new air service getting started at Lakefront Airport promises to be the next best thing.

Southern Airways Express plans to begin service in late June from New Orleans to Destin, Panama City, Gulf Shores and Memphis. Each of its turboprop plane seats nine passengers.

You won't have to pay baggage or parking fees and you can show up just 15 minutes before your flight. Southern Airways says it will eliminate the TSA security hassles by doing background checks on passengers at the time they buy their tickets. Fares for the non-stop flights will range from $129-$249 one-way.

Southern Airways CEO Stan Little says it chose New Orleans for the pilot city for the new passenger air travel concept. He describes it as executive style air travel made available to the general public.
