LAL officials say they hope to add more routes in the future.  

"It’s kind of a crawl, walk, run philosophy here, so we’ll get New Haven up and running and slowly start adding more in the future," said LAL assistant director Adam Lund.

Fares for the Avelo flights between Lakeland and New Haven cost $66 each way. 

The low-cost airline has a no change, no cancellation fee policy.
