GLO Airlines expected to announce service from Memphis

GLO Airlines, a New Orleans-based regional airline for the Gulf and Mid-South regions, is expected to announce service from Memphis International Airport Tuesday morning.

The announcement is expected to be part of a multi-city launch of nonstop air service to cities throughout the Gulf and Mid-South regions.

According to its LinkedIn page, “GLO’s vision is to provide regional business and leisure travelers a new option: One that couples the time efficiency of flying with the comfort and seamlessness of a first-rate air carrier.”

It is not yet known which other cities will be included in the launch. However, Bond Public Relations & Brand Strategy of New Orleans, which is representing GLO, was advertising a position for a GLO representative in Little Rock and Birmingham on its Facebook page earlier this year.

The Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority sent a media alert Monday afternoon that a new airline would make a nonstop service announcement Tuesday morning before the Airport Authority’s scheduled press conference that afternoon.

GLO Airlines is founded by Calvin “Trey” Fayard, III, a member of Fayard Law Firm in New Orleans.

Fayard has a bachelor’s degree in political science from Southern Methodist University, a master’s of science in shipping, trade and finance from City University London and a law degree from Tulane University.
