The October 27 announcement in Broome County comes weeks after Avelo Airlines announced it would be flying between Broome County and Florida beginning November 16.  The fairly new discount carrier will be flying to Orlando airport only for now.  The original fight service had included Fort Meyers but that destination is temporarily unavailable following the devastation to South West Florida caused by Hurricane Ian last month. 

Both the announced changes in service in Binghamton and Ithaca are being hailed as a huge boost to economic opportunity in the Southern Tier and Finger Lake regions as well as for leisure passengers as both LaGuardia and JFK are major international hubs with connecting fight opportunities all around the world.
