DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -- With minutes to go before this Southern Airways Express flight is set to take off for Memphis, business traveler Harold Sloves couldn't be more relaxed.
"It's just extremely convenient," he said. "You park right in front of the terminal, there's no long security line, you don't feel like cattle going through the airport."
Southern is a scheduled public charter that sells by the seat, with direct flights from DeKalb Peachtree Airport to Destin, Memphis, Jackson and Oxford, Mississippi.
"It's great. You come up, you show up 20 minutes before your flight, sign in, when everybody gets here, we go," Sloves said.
Southern uses the Signature terminal on the north side of PDK. Valet and self-parking are free and there are no security checkpoints or airline baggage fees.
