Surf Air Mobility, a leading regional air mobility platform, through its subsidiary airline, Southern Airways has officially begun Williamsport, Pennsylvania’s only scheduled commuter services with a flight to Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD).

Via Washington Dulles, passengers can connect to hundreds of worldwide destinations including Orlando, Los Angeles, London, and Tokyo through commercial airline partners.

The goal of the programme is to provide Williamsport and surrounding Lycoming County with easier, faster, and more affordable connections through the convenient Williamsport Regional Airport.

“We are excited to welcome Southern Airways to our region,” said Scott Metzger, Lycoming County Commissioner.

“The hundreds of businesses in our community will see immediate benefits in reduction of travel time to other airports. We look forward to their service of a ten county region including eight universities.

“They have placed their faith in our region with flights to an excellent hub in Dulles. It is now our responsibility to support, utilize and promote to make this partnership a long and sustainable success.”

“Welcome to Williamsport, Southern Airways,” said Richard C. Howell, A.A.E., executive director Williamsport Municipal Airport Authority/Williamsport Regional Airport. “We’ve brought frequent air service back to our community, and we’re thrilled to welcome more passengers to our brand-new terminal.”

At Washington Dulles, Southern uses the convenient H gates, allowing local passengers to avoid the airport’s mobile bus and train with a simple walk to ground transportation.

The agreement with Williamsport establishes a funding stream from the use of locally acquired grants coupled with community donations to mitigate risk to Surf Air.

“Having the support of the community made this launch possible, and we’re excited and honored to help connect Williamsport with the broader aviation infrastructure,” said Deanna White, interim CEO and COO of Surf Air Mobility.Subscribe to the FINN weekly newsletter
