Contour Airlines offers Waynesville-St. Robert Regional Airport introductory fares for $49 each way
Smyrna, Tennessee (Sept. 21, 2022)—Contour Airlines today celebrates the company’s largest expansion with the introduction of service in seven markets across the eastern U.S., connecting the small communities to major airports in Charlotte, Dallas, Nashville, and Philadelphia through an interline agreement with American Airlines.
“Contour is excited to bring reliable jet service to the Fort Leonard Wood Region. Travelers will appreciate our low fares and worldwide connectivity through our relationship with American Airlines,” said Matt Chaifetz, CEO of Contour Airlines. “We thank the entire Fort Leonard Wood Region and the U.S. Department of Transportation for their support and selection of Contour and look forward to serving this market for many years to come.”
“We are excited to welcome back Contour Airlines to the Waynesville-St Robert Regional Airport (TBN)”, states Beth Wiles, Executive Director of the Pulaski County Tourism Bureau. “Connecting our region to two major airports and offering additional flights throughout the week will bring expanded services for travelers arriving for military graduations, military reunions, military travel, business travel related to economic development opportunities and also for our local community members as they plan their personal and business travel.”
To celebrate the launch of the new routes, Contour is offering an introductory fare of just $49 each way when purchased by October 31, 2022*. Tickets are available for sale beginning today at: www.contourairlines.com.
Contour Airlines service will begin at the Waynesville-St. Robert Regional Airport (TBN) on October 18 with service to Nashville (BNA) and Dallas (DFW).
This new service will include 12 round trip flights per week. As an American Airlines interline partner, Contour offers travellers the ability to ticket seamlessly from their originating airport and through a connecting hub to global destinations. Contour’s website, www.contourairlines.com, now offers passengers the ability to search for connecting flight options including travel on American Airlines from their originating airport to their destination of choice.
Once all new routes are active, Contour will serve 26 markets across the United States. In support of this network growth, Contour has begun taking delivery of ten ERJ-140 aircraft that will be reconfigured to hold only 30 passengers, offering leather seats and expanded legroom in every row.
As one of the country’s largest Part 135 operators, Contour successfully recruits and develops pilots from a variety of backgrounds while serving small communities federally designated for Essential Air Service. Despite many carriers struggling to recruit and retain pilots, Contour has maintained industry-leading reliability while enjoying rapid growth. In 2022 alone, Contour will have added a total of ten Essential Air Service communities to its network, more than any other carrier in the country.
