I have flown with Southern Airways Express a few times now and even though there has been a few bumps due to issues beyond their control the customer service Russ and his crew in Hot Springs have given is always above and beyond awesome! I would recommend flying Southern Airways Express to everyone flying to Hot Springs, it is so...

The flight itself was fine, but was an hour late, which presented problems for the people I was meeting (and planned to pick me up). I have rarely been in a plane this small, though it was not crowded because there were only four passengers (and perhaps ten seats). The pilot and co-pilot were very personable, perhaps because there were...

Flew over the long labor day weekend. Flight left DFW 1/2 hour earlier than usual due to weather issues which we beat! While waiting in Harrison, AR, the pilot came over to us and let us know that we would be leaving shortly. (again about 1/2 hour earlier) The free parking at both airports is a plus. It's a stress...

For a significant portion of the ride I thought I was going to vomit, and my stomach remained upset for some...

I booked a flight from Memphis to Harrison for a Saturday morning arrival and Sunday evening return, so I could more easily visit my 95 year old great grandmother in Eureka Springs ahead of both mine and her upcoming birthdays. I also booked a hotel in Fayetteville AR to celebrate with friends. I received an email 18 hours before departure...

The whole process was quite painless & simple. Everyone was polite & professional. The waiting area was okay & the plane itself was great. Loved being on a small plane again. The only downside- my luggage cover was torn in several places but luggage itself was okay. Appreciated being able drop plane side & pick up after. Everyone gets a...
