New low-fare flights coming between Atlanta and Louisville

SUWANEE -- A small airline based near Atlanta plans to offer low-fare nonstop commercial flights between Atlanta and Louisville, Ky.

Vision Airlines, based in Suwanee, said Thursday it plans to begin operating two daily roundtrip flights between the two cities on Dec. 13 with tickets starting as low as $99.

The airline said a low-cost option is needed because of the strong business ties between the cities.

The route will initially be served by 32-seat turbprop planes, but the airline may put its larger Boeing 737 jets on the route as demand increases.

Vision says it may soon add flights to destinations in Florida from ''seriously underserved cities.''

Vision started in 1994 offering aerial tours of the Grand Canyon, and now operates charter flights for a variety of clients.
