Independence Air Takes Off

Savannah's newest airline is now open for business. Independence Air's first customers flew out of Savannah around 8am yesterday. Customers were buzzing about the low costs and convenient flights.

But, some unexpected delays rained on Independence Air's opening day celebration. A mechanical problem halted flights from Washington, DC, for a few hours.

Despite delays, airline spokeswoman Melissa Dunlop says customers are arriving satisfied. "Everybody is giving us a positive reaction," she said. "Everything is going very well for us."

Dunlop says Independence Air expects to double the number of passengers in the next few weeks.
