EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - A big day for Evansville Regional Airport as the first nonstop flight to Charlotte, North Carolina arrived.

There will be six flights daily to and from Charlotte adding 300 seats total.

"Anytime there are more seats in the market, usually fares will come down as well, so for the local people here there will be more opportunities to get to more destination but its also a great opportunity to bring outsiders into our community that would spend money," said Dianna Page, Director of Air Service Development and Marketing, Evansville Regional.

From Charlotte, passengers can connect to more than 120 destinations including international travel.
