Via Air offering new services out of Beckley


BECKLEY, W.Va. (WVVA) For those with dreams of making it to Disney World this Summer, there are new options when it comes to getting there. 

Via Air announced Friday the airline is doubling the number of flights to Sandford/ Orlando Airport for the Summer Season with scheduled flights every Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday, and Friday. 

"Obviously, with the price they're charging, $99 one way, it's an excellent deal. A great way to go to Disney World or the beaches," said Raleigh County Commission Pres. Dave Tolliver. 

Executives at Via Air said the $99 price includes taxes and luggage fees. In January, the airline also started a new partnership with American Airlines, an agreement that will open up a whole new world of travel for those flying out of Beckley. 

"As far as Raleigh County and the surrounding areas, it will be a great opportunity to travel," adds Tolliver. 

According to airline officials, the partnership which started in January means passengers will no longer have to book through separate airlines or re-check their bags. They recommend booking the connecting flights through American Airlines on either Via Air's website,, or to reserve a flight.
