There aren’t many direct flights to Mobile Regional Airport (MOB), in fact you can only fly directly from Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Memphis and Charlotte. Despite this, Mobile Regional is a busy little airport with more than 50 daily flights.
You may expect that a small airport like this would offer bargain fares, but that isn’t the case with Mobile Regional. As no low-cost carriers such as JetBlue or Southwest operate from the airport, the fares tend to be higher than nearby Pensacola Regional Airport.
The facilities at Mobile Regional are basic, with only a couple of restaurants and newsstands to keep passengers entertained between flights. A lack of entertainment and children’s amenities make it a less-than-ideal airport for stopovers. Still, if you do fly into Mobile Regional Airport, you can expect a warm Southern welcome from the friendly and helpful staff.
