Lansing’s Capital Region International Airport offering flights to Orlando

Direct flights to Orlando, Florida, are coming to Lansing’s airport this fall.

Houston, Texas-based Avelo Airlines, which describes itself as an ultra-low fare airline, will offer two flights a week to Orlando beginning in October from the Capital Region International Airport.

Avelo will be the only airline offering non-stop flights to Orlando from the Lansing area and is likely the first airline to start a regular passenger route out of Lansing in 15 years, said Andrew Levy, CEO of the airline.

Levy spoke to the Lansing State Journal ahead of a public announcement of the new route.

The company will offer an introductory rate of $59 for one-way flights booked by the end of July and completed before Feb. 15. The airline takes bookings at AveloAir.com.
