Have you been dreaming of an escape to the sunshine state? Now it’s easier than ever. Earlier this year, Avelo Airlines announced its exclusive nonstop service to Orlando from the Gulf Coast’s newest airport, Mobile International Airport (BFM). Service officially began on May 31. Read on for details.
From Mobile to Orlando
Avelo, the only airline in Mobile offering nonstop service to Florida, has officially begun operations on its twice weekly flights from MCO to BHM.
The flights will operate on Thursdays and Sundays on the Boeing Next-Generation 737 aircraft. Not only will these flights make it much more convenient to get from Mobile to Orlando, but one-way fares start at just $29 through Avelo Air.
“We are beyond thrilled to see commercial flights coming to the Mobile International Airport, and we know Avelo will provide an affordable option for residents throughout the region traveling to and from Orlando. I’d like to congratulate the leadership team at Avelo Airlines and MAA. This is an exciting milestone for our community and a taste of what’s to come as more and more commercial flights begin departing from Downtown Mobile.”Mayor Sandy Stimpson, City of Mobile
Avelo will be the only airline serving Mobile International Airport. The airline, founded in 2021, has flown more than two million customers and prides itself on low fares and reliability.
“It is truly a momentous day as we witness the inaugural flight of Avelo Airlines, connecting Mobile International Airport to Orlando. This partnership demonstrates our commitment to exceptional travel experiences, joining forces with Avelo Airlines known for affordable, high-quality air service. We are confident that this is just the beginning of a remarkable journey, with Mobile International Airport serving as a gateway to endless opportunities for our passengers.”Chris Curry, President, Mobile Airport Authority
