Avelo Airlines Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said, “Orlando – we’re growing again! We promised growth when we opened our Orlando base, and now we’ve added two more nonstop routes: Dayton and Dubuque. These routes make getting to Orlando more affordable and easier than ever, plus they offer Orlando residents opportunities to visit places not previously served from MCO. We believe Avelo’s combination of everyday low fares, industry-leading reliability and friendly service will inspire people from across the region to enjoy all Avelo has to offer.”

The new routes will operate on Boeing Next-Generation 737 aircraft.
