$49 FLORIDA FARE SALE ENDS MONDAY, JANUARY 31, 2011
SUWANEE, Ga., Jan. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Vision Airlines, the nation’s newest big jet, low-cost carrier, will end its $49* introductory one-way Florida fare sale on Monday, January 31, 2011 at 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time.
“However, Vision Airlines still offers the lowest one-way fares in the industry on its direct flights from 17 southern U.S. departure cities to six Florida destinations,” says company spokesman Bryan Glazer. “On average, Vision Airlines’ fares to Florida cost $89. Fares across the airline’s route system range from $69 – $199.”
The first flights start taking-off on March 25, 2011.
“Vision Airlines has now sold more than $1 million in tickets, since we opened our online store and call center 13 days ago,” says Chief Operating Officer David Meers.
“On January 18, minutes after Vision Airlines unveiled its 23 city mega-expansion plan and announced its one week $49 seat sale, the company’s reservations center was flooded with phone calls and its website was overwhelmed by more than 50,000 hits; causing its servers to crash,” says Glazer. “Within 48 hours, Vision Airlines sold-out of the limited $49 fares.”
Vision Airlines’ Sales and Marketing Director Clay Meek explains, “To deal with the technical problems, Vision Airlines increased its server capacity, brought more customer service agents on board and then added more $49 seats on every flight. To top-it-off, we extended our $49 introductory fare sale, which was slated to end on January 23, but will now end this Monday night.”
Meers emphasizes, “At this juncture, Vision Airlines believes it is more important to satisfy first-time customers rather than turn them away because they missed-out on a fare sale. Our first goal is to get passengers on Vision Airlines’ jets so they can experience our fast, friendly and efficient service. After their first flight on Vision Airlines, we are confident that we will earn passenger’s repeat business.”
