Over 32,000 Passengers Flew New Binghamton/Orlando Flight
(TOWN OF MAINE, NY) -The Greater Binghamton Airport (BGM) is celebrating its one-year anniversary of partnering with Avelo Air to provide nonstop flights from BGM to Orlando, Florida. The exciting addition of this nonstop service has been providing travelers with an easy, affordable option to escape the cold winter and enjoy sunnier temperatures with a short flight of a few hours on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Starting on November 16, 2022, air travelers have been enjoying low-cost direct flights to Orlando International Airport that is in the heart of the theme park capital of the world. Passengers who fly BGM to MCO (Orlando) have the unique advantage of going from the car to the gate without the wait, saving money by skipping the drive to larger airports while enjoying affordable parking, quicker TSA lines and a stress-free, more enjoyable experience of traveling through their hometown airport.
