WHITE PLAINS -

Travelers flying out of Westchester County Airport to Florida will soon have another option.

Starting Nov. 10, Elite Airways will begin twice weekly nonstop service from Westchester to Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport in Sarasota, Florida. Fares start at $179 each way.

Hudson Valley travelers looking to avoid the hassle of larger airports in New York City say they're excited about the news of a discount carrier with an upscale feel.

Elite Airways officials say they'll offer additional service on flights originating out of Westchester County Airport in the future.

Elite Airways is also pet-friendly. Pets can fly with their owners in the cabin for $50 each way, within standard safety guidelines.
