Red Way, a new Nebraska-based tour operator, has commenced commercial services from Lincoln Airport as it strives to ‘innovate’ the way Nebraskans fly.
The birth of Red Way
On 08 June 2023, Red Way performed its inaugural flight from its Nebraska base of Lincoln. The flight was non-stop between the cities of Lincoln and the major tourist destination of Orlando in Florida.
The company said that its first flight was a full cabin of excited customers on the direct service to the Florida airport.
The first routes planned, all from its home base of Lincoln, will be to popular destinations in the United States of America, initially to Orlando.
Red Way flights are offered as public charters by GlobalX Air Tours, LLC and are operated by the airline Global Crossing Airlines, Inc. The fleet of aircraft used are the Airbus A320 narrowbody aircraft.
Global Crossing Airlines is a Florida-based airline specialising in long term charter and lease operations. Red Way is a USA Part 380 operator.
Speaking on the inaugural flights, Red Way issued a statement that said: “We are thrilled to be starting service on June 8th. Our vision started with a simplistic goal of having a positive economic impact on the community by offering affordable pricing and an exceptional customer experience.”
Red Way is looking to establish a new, fresh, and established network of non-stop flights from Lincoln – often passengers from the airport or region have to make layovers or connections.
The network expands from 16 June with the destinations of Atlanta, Dallas, and Minneapolis added to the scheduled. On 24 June, further services will commence to Austin and Nashville.
‘A Unique and Honest Approach Air Travel’
In the press release, Red Way said they are “innovating the way Nebraskans fly and offers convenient and affordable non-stop routes to popular destinations.”
Establishing regular direct services from Lincoln, and providing increased accessibility for the greater Nebraskan community, is only one cornerstone of its strategy. It also says that it will offer exceptional service, competitive prices, and a seamless experience for the customers.
Speaking on the initial flights, David Haring, Executive Director of Lincoln Airport, said: “We are proud to introduce Red Way and bring the joy of hassle-free air travel to Lincoln and the wider Nebraska community.”
Both the airport and the tour operator have hailed the support these first flights have received the local Nebraska community. A message that appears to show their wish to be close to the hearts of the state and to keep in touch with their home base support.
“As we take flight, we are confident that our presence will continue to have positive impacts in a broader scope than what we originally anticipated. Our success can be credited to the incredible people and communities of Nebraska who have welcomed us with open arms,” the Red Way press release concluded.
