A new airline will fly out of Louis Armstrong International Airport.

It’s called GLO. The New Orleans-owned and based startup will offer non-stop air service to multiple Gulf and Mid-South destinations.

The airline will offer daily, non-stop flights to Little Rock's Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport (LIT), Memphis International Airport (MEM) and Shreveport Regional Airport (SHV). Flights will begin in November.

“We will have 30 direct jobs and we will be supporting 100 indirect jobs. All of those jobs are new. That includes, pilots, flight attendants, ground handling, people here at the airport, our managers, and another key part is most of those poeple that we hire, they all will be based and living here in New Orleans,” said GLO founder and CEO Trey Fayard.

GLO said they started operations in 2013 to accommodate Gulf and Mid-South travelers that “are underserved by existing carriers.”
