ASA celebrates 22 years in Albany

August 2, 2004

Albany - Without ASA's flight service to Albany, the City may stop growing. Monday, the Southwest Georgia Regional Airport airport celebrated 22 years of service with Atlantic Southeast Airlines, a subsidiary of Delta Airlines.

The airport director credits ASA for not only flying in business leaders hoping to expand here, but also giving huge companies, such as Proctor and Gamble, quick access to the world.

"ASA has grown to almost more than 400 daily flights out of Atlanta," said ASA Marketing Representative Gary St. John. "After flying to Atlanta, customers can connection to more than 800 flights."

ASA says when the customer base supports it, they may add more destination cities. For now, ASA makes four trips to and from Atlanta a day.
