Avelo adds nonstop service to Fort Myers from Lansing and Kalamazoo

The relatively new U.S. carrier Avelo Airlines will be expanding its services from Lansing and Kalamazoo with flights to Fort Myers. 

Avelo Airlines Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said, "The addition of Fort Myers to our LAN and AZO schedules makes travelling to Florida even more affordable and convenient. Southwest and Mid-Michigan residents can now choose from two sun-soaked nonstop destinations — Orlando and Florida's majestic Gulf Coast. Say hello to quick, easy and cost-friendly hometown airport access to The Sunshine State and say goodbye to long, expensive and gas-guzzling drives to those other distant Michigan airports."

Avelo is the only airline offering nonstop service from the Southwest and Mid-Michigan regions to Florida. 

Capital Region Airport Authority (CRAA) President and CEO Nicole Noll-Williams said, "We are beyond thrilled that Avelo Airlines is already expanding its nonstop service from LAN and will be offering nonstop flights to Fort Myers later this fall. With Avelo offering service to both Orlando and Fort Myers, combined with low fares, Mid-Michigan residents have even more travel options to enjoy – all with the ease, convenience and stress-free travel experience of flying Lansing."

CRAA Board Chairman John Shaski said, "We were excited to welcome Avelo Airlines to LAN last month, and we're even more excited to share that they are bringing nonstop service from LAN to Fort Myers later this fall. Having nonstop service with low-cost fares is a big win for travellers both in the Mid-Michigan community and the entire state, and adding this new destination gives travellers even more options, right from LAN. It is never too early to book your warm weather escape!"

Avelo will operate American-made Boeing Next-Generation 737s at both airports. Avelo is the only airline utilizing large mainline jetliners at AZO and LAN in contrast to the much smaller regional aircraft operated by the other carriers serving these airports.

Kalamazoo/Battle Creek International Airport Director Craig Williams, A.A.E. said, "We are excited to be part of Avelo Airlines' expansion in Michigan. Kalamazoo's response to Avelo has been overwhelming and we are happy to add Fort Myers to our map."

Avelo's seasonal service to RSW will operate twice weekly from both LAN and AZO beginning November 11.

Fort Myers – Immerse Yourself in the Beauty of Florida's Gulf Coast

Nestled along Southwest Florida's clear turquoise Gulf waters is the town of Fort Myers. Good days come naturally here with Fort Myers' secluded white sand beaches and relaxing waterfront resorts that nurture a sense of casual sophistication. Visitors can sway from shopping Fort Myers' charming boutiques to indulging in world-class dining, to enjoying a barefoot sunset stroll on the beach. It's been well over a century since Thomas Edison put down roots in "The City of Palms" — yet the community still generates an exciting energy that attracts visitors from around the world. Fort Myers promises endless ways to enjoy a romantic getaway or an activity-packed fun-in-the-sun family retreat. 

Lee County Port Authority Executive Director Ben Siegel, CPA, C.M. said, "We are excited that Avelo Airlines plans to expand service from Southwest Florida International Airport this November. We look forward to having service to Lansing and Kalamazoo – two popular travel destinations that have not been served recently from Fort Myers. We are extremely pleased to see Avelo expanding their network in Southwest Florida and giving more travel options to our community."

Avelo Airlines Partners with Aero HygenX to deploy autonomous ultraviolet disinfection robots to combat COVID-19

Avelo Airlines, America's newest airline, this week announced an innovative partnership with Ottawa-based Aero HygenX to deploy leading-edge autonomous ultraviolet light (UVC) robots to disinfect its aircraft fleet to combat COVID-19. Aero HygenX is the pioneer in autonomous UVC disinfection technology for the transportation industry.

The Aero HygenX RAY robot is a compact, lightweight, and autonomous device which uses motion-sensing technology to navigate interior spaces — disinfecting surfaces quickly and safely using UVC light. RAY is a sustainable alternative to harmful chemicals which can damage aircraft interiors, and is emissions-free.

Avelo Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said, “We are excited to be on the leading edge of helping prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses among the flying public. The safety and wellbeing of our Customers and Crewmembers is our top priority. Our partnership with Aero HygenX bolsters this commitment with the use of their innovative disinfection technology on our aircraft and at our bases. RAY is a safer, faster, more cost-effective and more sustainable solution than the conventional chemical-based manual disinfection process used by most other airlines.”

Avelo uses the RAY robots as part of its daily disinfection of its six Boeing Next-Generation (NG) 737 aircraft. Additionally, RAY is used to disinfect Avelo’s Crewmember (employee) workspaces at the airline’s West Coast base at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) and its East Coast base at Southern Connecticut’s Tweed-New Haven Airport (HVN). The aircraft and airport disinfection routine occurs every evening following the completion of each day’s flight operations.

Aero HygenX CEO Arash Mahin added, “We couldn’t be more excited to announce that America’s newest airline is using RAY. Avelo’s partnership with Aero HygenX will enhance its aircraft and airport disinfection regiment, and exemplifies the airline’s commitment to safety, reliability and innovation. We look forward to growing with Avelo as they add aircraft, bases, Customers and Crewmembers in the future.” 

A Game-Changing Solution

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, airlines around the world have implemented enhanced cleaning procedures involving more frequent and deeper disinfection of aircraft. In most cases, these more stringent hygienic measures have necessitated the manual application of harsh chemical disinfectants and have prolonged the sanitization process. Additional disadvantages of chemical-based disinfection include the creation of surplus hazardous waste and the degradation of aircraft interior finishes.
