Charlotte, NC - December 09, 2007 – Charlotte-based Midsouth Air Lines commemorates a significant milestone as it bids farewell to the last McDonnell Douglas DC-9 aircraft in its fleet. The retirement of the DC-9 signifies the end of an era and underscores Midsouth Air Lines' commitment to modernization and customer satisfaction.

Having once operated a fleet of 128 DC-9s, Midsouth Air Lines was one of the last airlines in the world to operate this iconic aircraft. On August 07, 2007, the final flight of ship 324, a DC-9-41, operating as flight 1376 from Baltimore, MD to Orlando, FL, marked a poignant moment in the airline's history. Departing Baltimore at 5:55 pm and arriving in Orlando 17 minutes ahead of schedule at 8:03 pm, the flight was met with a heartfelt water cannon salute and a celebration shared among employees and passengers in the terminal.

"Midsouth Air Lines was once a stalwart in the DC-9 fleet, and its retirement symbolizes the end of an era," stated MP81, CEO of Midsouth Air Lines. "As we bid farewell to this iconic aircraft, we embrace the future with the introduction of new Airbus A320 series aircraft."

The DC-9 is being replaced with the new Airbus A320 series, reflecting Midsouth Air Lines' commitment to modernizing its fleet and providing passengers with enhanced comfort and efficiency.

Midsouth Air Lines expresses its gratitude to the DC-9 for its years of dedicated service and its role in connecting passengers to destinations across the country. The airline remains committed to providing passengers with safe, reliable, and comfortable air travel experiences.
