Southern Airways Express is a commuter airline operating in the United States, its owners all work and live in the Greater Memphis area.[1][2] Its first passenger flight operated on June 6, 2013, to Destin.[3]

As a local service airline, Southern Airways Express serves eight cities in the Southern United States, with hubs in Memphis, Tennessee and Destin, Florida.[1]

Unlike major carriers, Southern Airways Express mainly operates out of general aviation fixed-base operator (FBO) terminals. Additionally, all flights are conducted under FAR part 135 regulations as "on-demand charters" that each carry fewer than 10 passengers, so there are no significant Transportation Security Administration requirements regarding passenger screening and baggage inspection.
