Twin Air Calypso Limited Inc., operating as Naples Connection, plans to begin scheduled air service between Naples Municipal Airport and four Florida cities beginning Oct. 22.

The company, which has flown between Fort Lauderdale and the Bahamas since 1954, plans to offer four weekly flights each to Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Key West and Orlando using high-capacity nine-passenger aircraft. Two pilots will crew the jet-prop Cessna Caravan aircraft.

Naples Connection plans to announce fares and schedules in September.

Why would anyone pay to fly to Miami or Ft. Lauderdale? They can drive faster than it takes to deal with flying, and it's a lot more pleasant. The same could probably be said for Orlando....flying is awful these days.
