Inaugural flight of a new service from SHD

By  | 

It was a big day for the Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport, as the first flight from SHD to Charlotte, North Carolina took off.

A dozen people lined up to be on the first ViaAir flight to Charlotte, NC on November 30. The flight is a quick 50 minutes, and then you are in a southeastern hub, and can go pretty much anywhere.

While this is convenient for many families, some took the flight because of the experience.

"I am very excited! I have been waiting on this day since I learned I would be going on the inaugural flight. I have been very, very, very excited, " said Jamison McCarty.

SHD will offer a new flight to Orlando, Florida beginning on December 11, 2016, as well.
