Byline: Adina Genn

Elite Airways will resume service to Long Island MacArthur Airport, officials said Wednesday. The airport isowned and operated by the Town of Islip.

The Portland, Maine-based airline will provide nonstop service to Melbourne, Florida, with connecting service to Bimini in the Bahamas. This flight will be offered twice a week, Thursdays and Sundays, beginning Sept. 6.

Airport Commissioner Shelley LaRose-Arken said in an email that MacArthur is "pleased that Elite Airways will be returning to Long Island MacArthur Airport."

"The continuation to Bimini Bahamas is a great addition to the markets we already serve, she added. "Elite's new service to the Bahamas provides Long Island travelers with even more choices and greater convenience."

John Pearsall, president of Elite Airways said the airline was "pleased" to "return to Long Island Islip."

The airline, which according to published reports flew out of MacArthur from June of 2016 to the following spring, plans to announce new destinations for 2019 and an expansion of service soon.

Three other airlines now fly out of MacArthur, including Southwest, American and Frontier.

Airport officials told LIBN that airlines constantly adjust their routes cancelling the underperforming flights, and adding new flights.
