Branson Airport Opens New Options for Travelers
In the United States alone, over 700,000 people boarded airplanes from March 2012 to March 2013 according to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics. There are also about 20,000 airports in America according to airlines.org. Part of those 700,000 passengers boarded at Branson Airport.
Branson Airport, LLC. was established in 2002 and opened its doors to the public in 2009. Since then, Branson Airport has been committed to providing a high level of customer service to its passengers and has been expanding its offerings ever since.
One of the biggest changes that Branson Airport has made since 2009 has been adding flights via Southwest Airlines to the mix. Southwest Airlines came to Branson in 2013 and replaced AirTran Airways. In a press release, Jeff Bourke, Branson Airport’s Executive Director was excited to have Southwest Airlines coming into the city. “Southwest Airlines presence in this region will do enormous things for the economic development of the entire Southwest Missouri and Northwest Arkansas area.” In addition to Southwest Airlines, Branson Airport offers flights through Frontier Airlines and Branson AirExpress. With these airlines in place, Branson Airport is able to offer customers non-stop flights to five destinations that include Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, and Orlando. Branson Airport’s claim to fame is for being the “home of everyday low fares” to all of their non-stop destinations.
Another one of Branson Airports expanded offerings is shuttle services into the city. When you arrive at the airport, there are shuttle, taxi, and limousine services available to help you get where you need to go in Branson. Gray Line Airport Shuttle is available for large or small groups and individuals. The shuttle is available for 30 minutes after each flight unless advance reservations have been made. To make reservations or to get more information, call 1-800-237-4466. Branson Yellow Cab, Checker Cab, and City Cab are also available to travelers going into Branson from Branson Airport. They are available 24/7 to come pick you up and deliver you to your destination. To order a cab, call 417-332-CABS (2227). Limousine services are available, but you must call the airport at 1-800-237-4466 in order to get more information about limousines.
In addition to shuttle, taxi, and limousine services, there are three car rental companies on-site ready to help you with your travel in the Branson area. Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National, and Alamo are the official car rental providers for the Branson Airport. Other services like Hertz, Budget, and Avis can be accessed via the airport shuttle, which can take you to their off-site offices. You can call 1-800-261-7331 to reserve your car with any of the on-site car rental companies.
