DOWNTOWN MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Southern Airways Express said Thursday it will expand its service starting Labor Day weekend from Memphis to Atlanta, Birmingham, and Gulfport-Biloxi.

The non-stop flights will be between General DeWitt Spain Airport in Memphis to DeKalb-Peachtree Airport in Atlanta, Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport and Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport.

"We are thankful for the enthusiastic response so far to our introductory Summer 2013 routes, and we will continue to provide year-round service to these popular Gulf Coast destinations," said Stan Little, Southern Airways Chairman and CEO. "Memphis is our home and our hub, and it will be gratifying to give Memphians and Mid-Southerners even more options for non-stop and direct flights."

Little also unveiled a new aircraft to its 9-seat Caravan planes, the 9-seat BE200 King Air.

The Memphis-based Mid-South airline also announced flights from Memphis to Knoxville, New Orleans to Birmingham, routes between Gulfport-Biloxi and Birmingham, and routes between Oxford, Miss., and Atlanta, cities that are or close to Southeastern Conference schools.

Southern Airways started service from DeWitt Spain Airport and Olive Branch Airport in Mississippi to New Orleans, Gulf Shores, Destin, and Panama City Beach.

Southern Airways tickets for flights through Dec. 23 are available for purchase online, at iFlySouthern.com, or via Southern's call center, at 1-800-329-0485.
