Houston-based Avelo Airlines, developed by a longtime Las Vegas aviation executive Andrew Levy, opened its sixth base of operations at Reid with a party with showgirls at one of the airport’s gates.

Meanwhile, Breeze Airways on Thursday launched its previously announced three-times-weekly service between Las Vegas and Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, and added daily one-stop service to Tampa, Florida.

Between them, the two carriers have brought more than 152,619 passengers to and from Las Vegas with Breeze bringing in the bulk of them.
