Summer Air Travel from Vero Beach!

Updated: Apr 26


Ditch the drive to MCO and PBI. Elite Airways resumes flights at Vero Beach Regional Airport (VRB) today with its popular twice-weekly nonstop service to Newark NJ. The airline is also adding a new nonstop flight to/from Portland International Jetport (PWM) in Maine beginning tomorrow, March 26, and a new nonstop flight to/from Westchester White Plains Airport (HPN) starting March 30. Elite’s existing service between Vero Beach and Newark will add a third day of flights on April 15 & 22nd then continue twice weekly throughout the summer.


Elite Airways operates a fleet of Bombardier CRJ-200, CRJ-700 and CRJ-900 jet airliners with 50, 70 and 90 seats respectively, known for comfort and efficiency, and maintains an impeccable safety record. All Elite Airways passengers receive free onboard snacks and beverages, advance seat assignments, free first-checked bag up to 50lbs and 62 inches in length (including travel golf bags), and no ticketing change fees; see website for details. Elite Airways is also pet friendly.


“Elite Airways is pleased to be back in Vero Beach with nonstop service to Newark, White Plains and Portland Maine,” said John Pearsall, President of Elite Airways. “Vero Beach has been an integral part of our spring and summer expansion plans now that runway rehabilitation at VRB is complete. We’d like to thank airport and city officials and the community for their continued support as we look for additional opportunities to expand service at VRB in the coming year.”


“We are pleased to see Elite Airways resume its nonstop service to Vero Beach,” said Paul Bradbury, Airport Director, Portland International Jetport. “The service was popular with our passengers in the past and we look forward to its return.” More information about PWM can be found at: https://portlandjetport.org.


It's part of a larger rollout of Elite Airways’ spring and summer schedule along the east coast and Florida as leisure air travel continues to rebound. In a separate release the airline announced expanded service in St. Augustine with the addition of a new nonstop flight to Portland Maine in addition to its existing twice-weekly service to Newark.


Tickets start at $199 each way and are available for sale at 877-393-2510 and EliteAirways.com. But we were able to price a flight in June from Vero Beach to Portland Maine NON-STOP for $598 total price. Not bad at all considering the sheer convenience and cost savings compared to driving or shuttling to Orlando or Palm Beach and dealing with connecting flights. For that price and just a little over 3 hours to fresh lobster, clams and the spectacular Maine coastline? That's what we call a "no brainer!"
