BRANSON, Mo. -- Branson Airport has a new airline that will service Chicago and Houston.

Buzz Airways will begin service on June 12. Fares begin at $99 each way including taxes.

Flights will operate in each market six days a week.

“Buzz Airways is here to provide service to communities that have faced a reduction or elimination of flights by the major airlines and their regional partners. With average load factors in excess of 80 percent, Southwest has clearly demonstrated the existence of demand in these particular markets,” says Matt Chaifetz, Chief Commercial Officer of Buzz Airways, in a news statement. “We are happy to step in to continue to offer low fares, great service, and nonstop flights for the busy summer travel season.”

The new flights by Buzz will replace some of those the airport will lose when Southwest ends it's service June 8.
