SUWANEE, Ga. -- Vision Airlines has only been flying out of Atlanta for six months, but it's looking to capture the vacationer caught in the middle of high gas prices and long hours on the road.

The airline has 30 airplanes, including the same kind flown by both Delta and AirTran.

Starting June 1, Vision will add daily service from Hartsfield-Jackson to Destin -- a favorite for more than 340,000 Metro Atlanta's every year. Along with it, Vision will fly daily flights to Louisville and Gulfport.

A key to its service, says Vision, is to fly to destinations that have limited service and charge rock-bottom prices. 

For passengers it's all about the money and saving time.

"People from Atlanta have travelled to Destin for years, for generations, thousands and thousands of them. The opportunity to cut that trip short to Destin for prices as low as $39 is certainly very appealing," said Clay Meek, Vision Airlines Marketing Director.

Also appealing to Atlanta passengers are Vision's one-stop flights (via Destin) to Las Vegas at $99. It's the cheapest right now the market.

And along with increasing its service, Vision says it will also be looking to add people.

"The type of employees we'd be looking at would be call center personnel, ground handling personnel that we use here at the airport, along with pilots and flight attendants," Meek added.

As the Airline grows in the Metro, watch for a permanent sign at its Hartsfield ticket counter to replace the TV Monitor that's now in place.
