Lexington loses flights to Memphis, gains others

(AP) - The Blue Grass Airport is Lexington, Ky., may have lost nonstop flights to Memphis, Tenn., but it will soon offer more direct flights to other locations.

With the additions, the airport will have more non-stop flights than it did five years ago. In the next month, the airport will serve 15 destinations with direct flights - two more than it did in 2006, the Lexington Herald Leader reported (http://bit.ly/vO34F4).

The airport is adding leisure destinations in Florida and Las Vegas.
