"New Orleans' Homegrown Air Carrier"
GLO Background (pronounced "glow"):
The Gulf and Mid-South regions are currently underserved by air carriers, forcing an over-reliance on road travel between the regions' cities. The need to drive results in an enormous waste of valuable time and loss of productivity driving to destinations that should have air service.
GLO's founder, Louisiana native Trey Fayard, experienced this lack of connectivity firsthand. He has spent more time than he would like to remember behind the wheel, traveling by car to locations that should be served by airlines.
Founded in 2013, with first flights in November 2015, GLO is addressing these travel needs, offering daily non-stop services between its base at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY) and Northwest Louisiana's Shreveport Regional Airport (SHV), Little Rock, Arkansas' Bill & Hillary Clinton National Airport (LIT) and Memphis (Tn.) International Airport (MEM). Seasonal flights have also been added between New Orleans, Little Rock and Northwest Florida's Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport (VPS).
GLO's mission is to provide fast, comfortable and convenient air service to the passengers and regions we serve. We will accomplish our mission through our unwavering commitment to passenger satisfaction.
Our vision is to provide a new option to business and leisure travelers, one that couples the time efficiency that comes from flying non-stop with the luxury expected from a first-rate air carrier.
