Elite Airways Doubles Service to Orlando Melbourne

Portland, Maine – The Portland International Jetport today announced that Elite Airways will be doubling their non-stop service to Orlando-Melbourne this winter. Beginning November 17, 2016 the twice weekly service (Monday and Friday) will become four times weekly service with flight on Thursday, Friday, Sunday and Monday. The additional flights represent a doubling of the operation to Orlando-Melbourne over last winter. This announcement comes one week after Elite Airways announced New Non-Stop service to Sarasota-Bradenton, FL. 

“The Portland/Melbourne route has been a strong performer since launching last fall, and we are pleased to double the service to four-times weekly in time for holiday and winter travel,” said John Pearsall, President of Elite Airways. “The success of our northeast-to-Florida routes has been a significant factor in Elite Airways’ success and expansion, and we look forward to introducing more exciting destinations in the future.”

“Orlando Melbourne International Airport is growing as the gateway to Florida. Downeasters especially appreciate our landing approach–right over barrier islands and some of the most beautiful tropical beaches in the world.  Port Canaveral, Kennedy Space Center, Walt Disney World and Harry Potter are all within driving distance, but without the hassle of larger, congested airports,” said Greg Donovan, AAE, Executive Director, Orlando Melbourne International Airport (MLB).

“We are pleased to see that Elite is doubling their service to the Orlando/Melbourne area,” said Paul Bradbury, Airport Director at the Portland International Jetport. “This service has been very well received by our passengers and the additional capacity and additional days of service will be a big win for Mainers looking to get to the beaches of Florida this winter.”

The new flights are available for sale now on Elite Airways website www.eliteairways.com or by calling their reservations at 877-393-2510.
