Flights from Savannah rank high on a list of pricey airfares. A new report from the US Transportation Department doesn't come as a surprise to Savannah-area travelers who drive to Jacksonville or Charleston to fly cheaply. The dilemma is partly due to the city's "not-too-small, not-too-big" market size.
Not even three months since landing in Savannah, Vision Airlines is leaving the market. Savannah airport officials never really saw the regional carrier as a good fit. Vision offered flights three times a week to Destin/Fort Walton Beach for a total of 90 seats of weekly service.
