NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

People who want to fly nonstop to Memphis or Destin can start booking flights out of New Orleans' Lakefront airport again.

Southern Airways announced Wednesday it will begin nonstop service to Memphis on May 26. Seasonal nonstop flights to Destin will begin in the summer.

"Southern Airways is the nation's only air carrier to offer non-stop service between New Orleans and Memphis," Southern Airways Chairman and CEO Stan Little said. "Southern is likewise the only option for nonstops from either of those cities to the Florida Panhandle. We look forward to welcoming New Orleanians aboard these exclusive flights for their business travels and their Summer vacations."

Direct flights between New Orleans and the two cities existed for 70 years until 2014.
