Vision Airlines Charged With Grand Theft

Vision Airlines has been charged with grand theft. It’s just the latest in a string of problems that the carrier has faced since its sloppy entrance into the world of regularly scheduled passenger service.

The grand theft charge was filed Monday by the state of Florida and Okaloosa County. They contend Vision Airlines owed more than $117,000 in public “passenger facility charge” (PFCs) fees that it collected during the carrier’s ill-fated attempt to create a hub at the Northwest Florida Regional Airport near the Florida destinations of Destin and Fort Walton Beach.
