Lakeland FL - Gateway to Florida
Lakeland Linder Regional Airport has been in existence for almost 70 years. With the Sun n’ Fun Fly-In which attracts over hundred of thousands visitors each year from around the country annually, the airport began it’s first commercial flight June 23, 2011. Lakeland, FL may be on it’s way as being the “Gateway to Florida.”
Direct Air offers non-stop charter flights to and from Myrtle Beach, SC, Hagerstown, MD, Springfield, IL and Niagara Falls, NY at low cost fares. All in all there will be eight weekly departures making it very convenient for passengers to fly in and out of Lakeland, FL.
Lakeland, FL has perfect demographic because of it’s centrally location. A short drive to Tampa or Orlando, close to beaches, Disney, Sea World, Bush Gardens, Universal Studios and the soon to be newest attraction scheduled to open on October 15, 2011 in Winter Haven - Legoland Florida.

By bringing in a commercial carrier, such as Direct Air to Lakeland, FL creates job opportunities, new businesses, conferences and tourism for Polk County. And who knows, it may lead soon to international flights.
This is just another reason, while I think Lakeland, FL is such a great city to raise a family, open a business or visit during the fall and winter months. Florida does not have state income tax, Polk County’s sales tax is currently 7%. Another great benefit aside from lower housing prices is the property tax benefit, known as homestead exemption, when making your Lakeland, FL home your primary residence.
