PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — An airline that has only been operating in the United States for eight months has expanded services to Palm Beach International Airport.
The first Avelo Airlines flight to PBIA arrived just after 9:30 a.m. on Thursday.
The plane received a water cannon salute from the airport's fire department.
From now until Jan. 4, 2022, the airline will fly daily between the Palm Beaches and New Haven, Connecticut, with some fares starting at $29. Starting Jan. 5, 2022, they will begin a new schedule with flights five days each week.
The airline says the inaugural flight was near capacity proving that there's a big demand for passengers looking to travel between West Palm Beach and the Northeast.
