Contour Airlines announced Tuesday new daily nonstop flights out of Indianapolis.

The direct flights are now available to Milwaukee, Nashville, and Pittsburgh.

Contour said it plans to create more than a dozen jobs to support its Indianapolis operations. 

The Tennessee-based airline originally announced plans to set up operations in Indianapolis in February 2020, but that was put on hold due to the pandemic.

“Today is the demonstration of what happens when you hold tight to a vision and a plan, even through the toughest of times,” said Mario Rodriguez, executive director of the Indianapolis Airport Authority. “It’s also the fruition of a long-awaited hope for Indy air travelers who have been asking for years for nonstop flight options to what are traditionally regional drive destinations.”

Contour is the second airline to launch service at Indianapolis International Airport this year. Sun Country Airlines began flights in May. So far this year, airlines have added 21 nonstop flights out of Indianapolis.
