Families and Golfers Save Green as Vision Airlines Reduces Pet Fares and Golf Bag Fees

PR Newswire

SUWANEE, Ga., April 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Vision Airlines has reduced its golf bag fees to an industry low $39* each-way, and now Vision Airlines has announced the lowest pet fares in the industry at $50* each-way. Beginning Thursday, April 14,2011, passengers can take advantage of these reduced fees and fares on all Vision Airlines flights. With these great new prices, there is no reason to leave your clubs or furry friends behind.

It is no secret that Florida has much to offer when it comes to vacation activities, especially golf.  Beautiful, championship golf courses are abundantly available to Florida vacationers.  Renting generically sized clubs can be costly and frustrating on the course.  Golfers will find it affordable and comforting to bring their own clubs and bags with Vision Airlines' $39* Golf Bag Fees.

Pets are part of the family, so it's difficult to board them for several days during a family vacation. When passengers board their animal(s), they are not only faced with a guilty conscious but with the high cost of a pet hotel. With Vision Airlines' $50* each-way Fly-A-Pet Fees, vacationers can finally bring the whole family at an affordable rate. Many pets are permitted in the cabin during Vision Airlines' flights, including some dogs, cats and household birds. Call Vision Airlines at 877-359-2538 to arrange to bring your pet onboard. A one-way Fly-A-Pet Fee of $50.00 and the following restrictions apply:

  • The pet must be at least 8 weeks old;
  • The pet counts as one piece of carry-on baggage;
  • The total weight of your pet and carrier may not exceed 20 lbs;
  • The pet must remain inside the kennel (with door secured) while in the Vision Airlines boarding area, during boarding and deplaning, and while onboard the aircraft;
  • The kennel or carrier must fit under the seat and remain there at all times;
  • Customers traveling with pets may not be seated in exit rows or in the bulkhead seats;
  • Two pets of the same type may be allowed in one kennel, for example two dogs or two cats. The pets must be small enough to fit in one kennel, be compatible and of the same species and weigh less than 20 pounds total. They will be charged as one pet.

Vision Airlines currently services 11 states in the Southeast with non-stop flights to and from NW Florida Regional Airport, located at Destin/Ft Walton Beach


Vision Airlines is flying to some of the most popular leisure destinations in Florida.  Numerous communities have contacted Vision Airlines about providing service to these great Florida vacation spots. Many of these communities have been underserved by the major carriers and travelers have found it difficult to fly to their favorite vacation destinations.

"Vision Airlines business model is to be a leisure destination airline and travel company, offering the lowest prices and best values on vacation packages throughout the U.S., Caribbean, and Mexico," according to Meers.  

Vision Airlines plans to announce additional routes and destinations later this month.
