MOBILE, Ala.; May 31, 2023 — Avelo Airlines takes flight to Orlando with exclusive nonstop service from the Gulf Coast’s newest airport, Mobile International Airport (BFM). Avelo is the only airline in Mobile offering nonstop service to The Sunshine State.
Service begins today to Orlando’s most convenient airport, Orlando International Airport (MCO), with a special inaugural flight, and begins normal operation twice weekly on Thursdays and Sundays on Boeing Next-Generation 737 aircraft. Very low, one-way fares between BFM and Orlando start at $29*. Customers can make reservations at AveloAir.com.
Avelo Airlines Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said, “Mobile – it’s officially time to say hello to Avelo!
