News Center 7 previously reported in January that the airline began nonstop service from Orlando International Airport to Dayton.

A spokeswoman for the airline has confirmed they will be leaving the Dayton market.

“We are still working on the details with Dayton International Airport for the exact date the service will end,” Courtney Goff, Communications Manager of Avelo Airlines, told News Center 7. “Our priority is taking care of our customers, and we will notify those affected with their options.”

News Center 7 spoke with travelers about it and they are surprised by the announcement.

“It’s kind of disappointing that they’re leaving so quickly,” said Jim Allen.

“I fly and travel,” said Earl McDaniel. “You always want to see your community gaining things rather than losing it.”

City, airport, and airline officials announced back in November that Avelo Airlines would start offering nonstop service from Dayton to Orlando.

News Center 7 checked Avelo’s website Monday and they are offering nonstop flights from Dayton to Orlando for low as $29 to as much as $129 now through February 12.
