Southern Airways began service from Quincy Regional Airport with two daily
departures to each Chicago and St. Louis on Thursday, December 1, 2022. The schedule was increased to three daily departures to each hub on January 10. Southern replaces Cape Air, which has served the community for the last year.
Southern’s flights will take place on the Cessna Grand Caravan, the same aircraft that Southern uses on all its routes east of the Mississippi River. Fares will range from $39 to $129 each way based on advanced purchase and seat availability. Tickets are on sale now at iFlySouthern.com, as well as on our partners’ websites, aa.com, United.com, and AlaskaAir.com.

Southern Airways currently has interline ticketing and baggage agreements with American, United, and Alaska Airlines.
