Avelo Airlines will begin serving Lexington, Kentucky from October with nonstop routes to two popular Florida destinations: Orlando (from 19 October) and Tampa (from 12 November).
“To say that we are excited about this announcement would be an understatement,” said Blue Grass Airport President and CEO, Eric Frankl. “An ultra-low-cost airline like Avelo – providing service between Lexington and two Florida destinations – will be a tremendous benefit for central Kentucky passengers. The last several years in the aviation industry have been an enormous challenge for many communities, including ours, as air service continues to recover.”
The new routes will operate on Boeing 737 aircraft with introductory fares starting at $39.
Avelo Airlines Chairman and CEO, Andrew Levy, said: “We are excited to add Kentucky’s Bluegrass region to Avelo’s nationwide network of popular destinations. Getting to the Sunshine State is now easier and more affordable than ever. These two sun-soaked destinations are an ideal fall and winter retreat. Avelo’s refreshingly convenient, reliable and caring service ensures our Central Kentucky customers will arrive relaxed and ready for fun.”
