The new kid on the runway, at least for Lakeland, FL, is start-up airline DirectAir. Its launching with a bang by throwing a half-off sale through end of day tomorrow. Book by end of day and use the promo code MAYFARE for 50% off all flights. In some cases, that will lower the cost of a ticket to just $49 (plus taxes).
That's big news for Disney and Harry Potter fans as Lakeland, Florida, where DirectAir starts service on June 23, is quite close to Orlando. DirectAir will be offering service to Lakeland from a number of gateways that don't have direct service into this area including Myrtle Beach, Springfield (IL), Niagara Falls, and Hagerstown. On November 19 it adds San Juan, Puerto Rico and Plattsburg to that list.
Never heard of DirectAir? Well, the company started offering charter flights to the public in spring of 2007. It also flies to Allentown, Chicago, Columbus, Fort Myers, Kalamazoo, Melbourne, Newark, Pittsburgh, Toledo, West Palm Beach, Worcester and Nassau in the Bahamas.
