MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Several new nonstop flights could start departing soon from the Memphis International Airport.

OneJet's first Memphis to Indianapolis flight took off Monday morning. The airline hopes to add a nonstop flight to Pittsburgh soon.

Additionally, the Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority approved a new incentive policy to recruit more airlines to the facility by offering companies reduced or waived landing, rental or fuel flowage fees. They've also offered to provide financial assistance for marketing.

The airport hopes to recruit airlines that fly to destinations such as San Francisco, Boston, Fort Lauderdale, Phoenix and Seattle.
