Airline and Destination
Historically, the airport had scheduled passenger service provided by Southern Airways with Douglas DC-9-10 jetliners. Southern operated nonstop flights to Memphis with direct service to Baton Rouge and New Orleans via an intermediate stop in Monroe, LA and also on a direct, one stop basis to Atlanta. Other flights operated by Southern continued on direct, no change of plane routings to Chicago, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale. Southern then merged with another air carrier to form Republic Airlines which in turn continued to serve Greenville. Republic operated DC-9 jet service to Memphis, Baton Rouge and New Orleans, and also provided direct, one stop or two stop jet service to Atlanta. Some Republic jet flights continued on to Washington D.C. (Dulles Airport) and New York City (LaGuardia Airport) on a direct, no change of plane basis. Republic subsequently ceased all flights from Greenville and withdrew from the market.
Currently, flights to Atlanta are operated by Silver Airways.
