FLORIDA AIR HAS FARE DEAL TO TAMPA

 FLORIDA AIR HAS FARE DEAL TO TAMPA
 MIAMI, March 9 /PRNewswire/ -- On Monday, March 23, a new airline,


Florida Air, will make getting between Tampa and Fort Lauderdale easier. For the first week the airline is offering an introductory fare $100 roundtrip. There will be eight fights a day, Monday through Friday, as well as a weekend schedule. For reservations and more information travelers should call 800-JET-AIR1.
 This Tampa schedule is the second destination for the airline which will begin service to and from Nassau, Bahamas this Wednesday, March 11.
 "With Florida Air, a business traveler can now get from Fort Lauderdale to Tampa and back in one day," said Jack E. Robinson, president and general manager of the new airline. Convinced that travelers need more affordable and frequent flights between Florida cities, Robinson is offering low, unrestricted fares. There are no penalties for changes or cancellations. The Fort Lauderdale Airport will be home to Florida Air. Robinson calls the airport the most vibrant airport in South Florida. He selected the airport because, "it is an excellent airport that is professionally managed, provides great facilities and is landscapped beautifully." It is also convenient for Palm Beach, Broward and Dade travelers.
 Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport officials are pleased with Florida Air's decision to be based at their location. George Spofford, aviation director for the Broward County Aviation Department says, "Florida Air's initial schedule of four flights daily to Tampa and six flights daily to Nassau will provide additional opportunities for area residents to travel to those destinations." He adds that Florida Air, "will be a welcome boost to the economy of Broward County."
 Robinson, formerly the president of Eastern Express, plans to expand Florida Air service this spring to Freeport and the Bahamas' Family Islands. The aircraft are large enough to accommodate group travel and sports travelers, such as scuba divers and recreational fishing groups.
 Robinson, a recognized leader in the airline industry, recently wrote his first book, "Freefall: The Needless Destruction of Eastern Airlines," published by Harper Collins, which will be available in late May. His plans for Florida Air are to operate a fleet of 10 aircraft by the end of 1992 and expand service to additional Florida cities, including Orlando and Pensacola.
