DESTIN, FL, Jan. 19 /CNW/ - SDI Investments (SDI), parent company of
Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, the Palms of Destin Resort &
Conference Center, Silver Shells Resort and Spa and Cottage Rental
Agency at Seaside and other properties on the Florida Coast, today
predicted a significant and positive economic impact from the new
service of Vision Airlines to and from Northwest Florida Regional
According to SDI President John Russell, Vision Airlines' new service
to/from Northwest Florida Regional Airport will change the tourism and
hospitality industry on Florida's Emerald Coast and benefit the
thousands of guests who visit. "Vision Airlines announcement to expand
direct service in 20 cities will be a significant economic stimulus.
The new air service will result in greater access, more visitors and an
increase in visitor frequency," said Russell.
"The timing is perfect while many families, couples and businesses are
evaluating where to go for their vacations or meetings this Spring and
Summer," added Russell.
For example, Vision Airlines announced a special $49 fare sale through
January 23 that will enable travelers to take advantage of the glorious
Spring Break season and even the Sandestin Wine Festival on April
29-May 1, the oldest, most established wine festival in Florida, which
attracts thousands of attendees each year.
Sandestin, the Destin area and the Beaches of South Walton were
adversely impacted by Deepwater Horizon accident last year.
"Vision Airlines' expansive new air service provides travelers and
groups an opportunity to see and enjoy the beautiful Emerald Coast for
themselves. It allows us an added way to welcome back thousands of
travelers and groups, while introducing new guests to our beautiful
region, sugar white sand beaches and variety of activities including
golf, tennis, watersports, dining and more for all ages," said Russell.
