It's official; Trans-Meridian Airlines will begin operating nonstop, low-fare service to Orlando from the Rockford Airport starting August 28.
There had been speculation about the name of the airline for some time, but the Greater Rockford Airport authority confirms it'll be Trans-Meridian.
The airline will offer six flights a week and you can start booking now. One-way fares start at $69. Local travel agents say people have already been stopping by their offices to ask about service out of Rockford.
Trans-Meridian Airlines will host a kick-off on July 8 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Greater Rockford Airport.
