Little Rock to Austin flight set for April

LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT) - Arkansas residents will be able to fly to Texas' capital city on a non-stop basis starting April 29.

According to a media release from the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport, Florida-based Via Airlines will be offering the flights on a 50-seat Embraer ERJ-145.

The airline goes to 17 different airports as of now and airport officials say the opportunity to expand service to a growing market is important.

The airport has seen two other announcements so far this year. Frontier Airlines will offer nonstop service to Denver, starting March 1, while American/Envoy will begin flying non-stop to Washington, DC on April 3.
