PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Looking to get away? Well, you’re in luck! Airlines are expanding flights to Florida from some of our smaller airports.
Spirit Airlines has already announced it will provide nonstop service from Atlantic City to Palm Beach. That starts on Thursday.
The airline said special discounted fares will start at $50 one-way.
It already flies to four other Florida locations.
And Avelo Airlines will soon offer cheap, non-stop flights to Florida at the Wilmington-New Castle Airport.
The airline will have flights to five Florida airports from $49 starting Feb.1, 2023.
But with airline departures at the airport over the years, some are questioning if the airline will stay.
In the past two decades, three airlines have announced operations at the airport, only to leave shortly after due in part to competition with surrounding airports.
Airport officials say this new contract shows that Avelo is here to stay.
