​​Avelo Airlines, a fast-growing carrier in the region, has announced plans to open a new base of operations at Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Myers.  The base will be the Connecticut-based airlines' fourth, joining Los Angeles' Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR), Southern Connecticut's Tweed-New Haven Airport (HVN) and Orlando International Airport (MCO).  The new base at Southwest Florida International (RSW) will create 35 jobs, according to a statement.  'The opening of Avelo's fourth base in Fort Myers this fall will enable us to serve more destinations, add more flights, operate more airplanes, fly more customers and employ more crew members,' Avelo Airlines Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy says in the statement.
