A new airline that recently came to Beckley will now fly passengers to the Sunshine state.
Just a few weeks ago , Countour Airline took passengers on its first flight out of Raleigh County Memorial Airport to Charlotte, North Carolina. Now Contour is adding a new destination even further South to Tampa, Florida.
The Executive Vice President of Flight Operations for Countour says the flight will be beneficial for those traveling to Tampa to go on cruise ships. The first flight from Beckley to Tampa will take off at 3:15 in the afternoon on December 22. The flight is direct and will take just over 2 hours.
