ASA expands service in South Georgia

December 16, 2002

Valdosta - Atlantic Southeast Airlines is expanding its Jet service in South Georgia. Beginning February 1st, A-S-A will convert one of its three daily flights from Valdosta to Atlanta to Jet Service.

A-S-A is retiring its Brasilia turbo prop planes. Last December, the Albany to Atlanta service was fully converted to jet service.

Valdosta Regional Airport will run flights on the A-T-R turbo prop that seats up to 66 people and the Regional Jet with 50 seats. The Regional jet is known for it's quick speed and comfort, flying at a speed of 530 miles per hour.

The airport will still use Brazilia turbo props, which seat 30 passengers, for some flights, but hopes to retire them by July.
