Contour Airlines will offer new service from Nashville International Airport® (BNA®) to Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) beginning November 17, 2021. Contour Airlines will offer the only nonstop flights from Music City to South Carolina’s Upstate region. With the addition of Greenville-Spartanburg to its network, the carrier will serve four destinations nonstop from Nashville.
The new service will operate five times each week, excluding Tuesdays and Saturdays. Contour will utilize 30-seat Embraer ERJ-135 and Embraer ERJ-145 aircraft configured with a minimum of 36 inches of seat pitch in every row, equivalent to the legroom in first class on most domestic flights. Contour has no middle seats on its aircraft, allowing for more space between passengers. Tickets for these flights can be purchased now at www.contourairlines.com.
“We are thrilled to introduce Contour service to South Carolina,” said Matt Chaifetz, CEO of Contour. “I know that travelers will appreciate the speed, comfort, and convenience of nonstop air service. The ability to replace all day drives with an hour-long flight will enhance productivity for business travelers and give leisure travelers additional time to enjoy all that South Carolina’s beautiful Upstate region has to offer.”
“This new non-stop service is outstanding news for two great cities and two great airports. We sincerely appreciate Contour’s continued commitment to our region and to our business and leisure travelers,” said Doug Kreulen, president and CEO of Nashville International Airport.
“Service to Greenville-Spartanburg provides another option for those traveling to South Carolina to explore the business sector and visit the award-winning cultural and entertainment offerings that Greenville is known for. I’m confident that I will personally be using this service to visit family, friends, and business associates in South Carolina.”
