MUSCLE SHOALS, Alabama (WAFF) - Northwest Regional Airport announced the expansion of their flight destinations to Pensacola, Florida on December 9th.

According to the airport, adding the new route will offer North Alabama travelers affordable, non-stop service to Florida and South Alabama’s beaches with air carrier Boutique Air.

  1. My old general aviation stomping grounds between the Gulf Coast and north AL and GA. KMSL->KPNS is only 257NM and a 1-hour flight in zero wind for a PC-12. I don't see much market in this for any north Alabama families flying to the beaches paying $59/head one way when the drive from Muscle Shoals to Pensacola is only 6 hours and then they'd have to rent wheels on top of that or Uber around. At best only the upper classes would go this route, and I don't think there are many of them in Muscle Shoals (unlike say further south in Birmingham where the drive to PNS is just 4 hours and many Birmingham elites own condos along the Gulf Coast beaches). That said, I wish the carrier well.
