Surf Air Mobility and Williamsport, Pennsylvania, Officially Begin Subsidized Commuter Air Service Between Williamsport Regional Airport (IPT) and Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD)


Surf Air Mobility Inc. (NYSE: SRFM) ("Surf Air"), a leading regional air mobility platform, through its subsidiary airline, Southern Airways ("Southern"), officially began Williamsport's only scheduled commuter service on Thursday, May 23, 2024 with a flight between Williamsport Regional Airport (IPT) and Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD). Via Washington Dulles, passengers can connect to hundreds of worldwide destinations including Orlando, Los Angeles, London, and Tokyo through commercial airline partners.

To mark the launch of the area's only commercial flights, Southern Airways announces a fare sale, with fares starting at $99* one-way. The flights are now open to the general public and can be booked through iFlySouthern.com as well as from our partner airlines at United.com, aa.com, and AlaskaAir.com.

The goal of this program is to provide Williamsport and surrounding Lycoming County with easier, faster, and more affordable connections through the convenient Williamsport Regional Airport. With consistent daily service from this underutilized regional airport adjacent to the city's center, travelers traveling to or from the greater D.C. area can now skip the multi-hour drive and fly directly to or from Williamsport Regional Airport on one of ten weekly flights.

"We are excited to welcome Southern Airways to our region," said Scott Metzger, Lycoming County Commissioner. "The hundreds of businesses in our community will see immediate benefits in reduction of travel time to other airports. We look forward to their service of a ten county region including eight universities. They have placed their faith in our region with flights to an excellent hub in Dulles. It is now our responsibility to support, utilize and promote to make this partnership a long and sustainable success."

"Welcome to Williamsport, Southern Airways," said Richard C. Howell, A.A.E., Executive Director Williamsport Municipal Airport Authority/Williamsport Regional Airport. "We've brought frequent air service back to our community, and we're thrilled to welcome more passengers to our brand-new terminal."

At Washington Dulles, Southern uses the convenient H gates, allowing local passengers to avoid the airport's mobile bus and train with a simple walk to ground transportation.

The agreement with Williamsport establishes a funding stream from the use of locally acquired grants coupled with community donations to mitigate risk to Surf Air.

"Having the support of the community made this launch possible, and we're excited and honored to help connect Williamsport with the broader aviation infrastructure," said Deanna White, Interim CEO and COO of Surf Air Mobility.

The flights are operated by Southern Airways Express, the airline subsidiary of Surf Air Mobility.

Schedules are timed for both local passengers to and from Washington, DC, as well as connections beyond.
