Great flight. I'm a repeat customer. I have no complaints. it was a smooth flight. About 45 minutes into the flight the pilot turned to check on us, making sure we were all good. Coming back from AR, was good flight, it was a sunny day and what a great view! Thank you Southern! Looking forward to flying again soon!

Absolutely awful flight experience and even worse customer service. We were supposed to have a short connection in Hagerstown to refuel, but that connection turned into a 3 1/2 hour connection, where only ONE lady knew what was going on and would only come back every hour and a half just to let us know she wasn’t sure what was...

Pilot took off perfectly smooth couple of bumps till reaching altitude then a great flight with wonderful sunset view, landing was as perfect as take off. Left on time and arrived on time. Seats lean back too far for me so leaning back and using the headrest was not feasible. Would...

I cannot express how professional, respectful and polite the people of Southern Airways Express are. I am retired now, but during my working years I flew over a million miles and I can easily list Southern Airways Express as one of the best airlines I have ever flown.

Look, in terms of aesthetics, you get what you pay for. The plane is by no means modern or new, and the pilot is young. However, the airport terminal is private and not apart of the regular airport system. I arrived 15 minutes before my flight, was greeted kindly, boarded with no issues, and had a very safe and enjoyable...

The wife was going to fly in the afternoon. I called 2 hours before the flight and made sure they were on because I've heard of horror stories of their cancellations. I booked the flight.

I was surprised when I saw the airplane. It was a nine-seater. The pilots did a great job and I had a lot of fun. No bathroom, no snacks, but a great adventure. It was a beautiful flight!

This very affordable flight from Franklin to Pittsburgh is the perfect connecting flight that originates relatively close to my home and gets me to a larger airport to catch a flight to my final destinations. Not only that but this particular airport offers free parking which more than pays for the flight !

We flew to Pittsburgh from Dubois and back for $29 per person each way. We were away for a week. Couldn't have driven there and back and parked for a week for $126. So nice to fly home instead of driving after a long trip. All the staff and pilots were great.
