The Delta Air Lines Airbus has returned to ROA providing 132 seats to Atlanta (ATL) from Roanoke early each morning.
United Airlines has added a special flight for the Notre Dame vs. Virginia Tech game next month. They will operate a non-stop flight from South Bend, IN (SBN) to ROA to accommodate game traffic. This is the first time United has added ROA to the Football Flying program. Please promote this flight to your friends in that market!! If it performs well, maybe they will consider having them run a ROA-SBN non-stop flight next year when Tech plays at Notre Dame.
Allegiant Air is resuming their service to Clearwater/St. Pete in October!
Lastly, on Tuesday, November 2, American Airlines resumes service from ROA to New York-LaGuardia (LGA). On Thursday, November 18, they will add a second daily flight. Once they go to two daily flights, the flight times are awesome! Travelers can depart ROA at 06:07 arrive LGA at 07:45 or depart ROA at 5:49 pm and arrive LGA at 7:24 pm. The return trip, depart LGA at 3:29 pm and arrive ROA at 5:15 pm or depart LGA at 9:29 pm and arrive ROA at 11:09 pm. The timing of the flights is great for business or leisure travel.
Appreciate all of the hard work of the ROA staff and Airport Commission to bring these exciting flights to the region!
