INDIANAPOLIS — A new airline is coming to Indianapolis that will add three new non-stop flights out of the city.

Indianapolis International Airport announced that Contour Airlines would begin flying out of the city during the annual Routes Americas 2020 Conference on Wednesday.

“Contour Airlines landing in Indiana is a huge win for the Hoosier state, and we’re extremely grateful that Contour is providing more career opportunities for Hoosiers,” said Indiana Governor Eric J. Holcomb. “As our pro-business reputation continues to spread around the country and around the world, new nonstop flights provide a critical link in connecting Hoosier companies, residents and tourists to destinations around the world.”

Contour is based in Nashville and will offer non-stop flights from Indianapolis to the Music City as well as St. Louis and Pittsburgh every day.

To support the company's growth in Indiana they also announced they will be creating 55 new jobs by the end of 2023. The company plans to launch operations in Indianapolis on June 10, 2020.

"Indiana is a natural fit for Contour Airline's growth," said Matt Chaifetz, chief executive officer of Contour. "We look forward to employing Hoosiers and bringing Indy travelers nonstop service to key business and leisure markets."

Once the service begins, it will give flyers a total of 53 non-stop destinations from Indianapolis, which is an all-time high.
