Portland airway expands service to Bar Harbor and Long Island

Portland-based Elite Airways said it will add direct flights from Portland to Bar Harbor and Long Island, N.Y.

John Pearsall, president of Elite, told the TCPalm that the popularity of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island with tourists made the expanded service offering a reality.

"Bar Harbor is a destination we thought a lot of Floridians would like to go to," Pearsall told the TCPalm.

The expanded service from Portland International Jetport will start on June 17, when passengers can fly nonstop on Fridays and Sundays to Long Island MacArthur Airport, where they can take connecting Elite Airway flights to Myrtle Beach, S.C., and Orlando-Melbourne in central Florida.

Ticket prices for round-trip flights from Portland will be between $198 and $398 for Long Island, and between $158 and $298 for Bar Harbor.
