Avelo Airlines is a low-cost carrier that launched in 2021 and has been quickly growing. The airline operates a fleet of modern Boeing 737 aircraft and serves destinations across the United States. Avelo competes with Spirit Airways, Breeze Airways, Allegiant Air, Frontier Airlines, and Sun Country Airlines.
The airline announced today that it will begin serving its 25th state: Wisconsin. Service between Central Wisconsin Airport (CWA) and Orlando International Airport (MCO) will begin on October 5th. Flights will run 2x weekly on Thursdays and Sundays with a Boeing 737NG serving the route.
Andrew Levy, Avelo Airlines’ Chairman and CEO, said:
Central Wisconsin – say hello to Avelo! We are excited to announce exclusive nonstop service to Orlando. Avelo’s combination of everyday low fares, industry-leading reliability and friendly service, coupled with CWA’s time and money-saving convenience will inspire people from across the region to enjoy all Orlando has to offer. Getting to the Theme Park Capital of the World is now easier and more affordable than ever. With the addition of Wisconsin to Avelo’s nationwide route network, Avelo will now serve half the United States.”
I had never heard of Central Wisconsin Airport (CWA). It’s in the heart of Wisconsin, located in Mosinee, between Stevens Point and Wausau. It’s a tiny airport and one that benefited from a Small Community Air Service Development grant last year according to @IshrionA. The US Department of Transportation (DOT) awarded Avelo Airlines $900,000 to secure the nonstop flights to Orlando. Data from its application is above.
Anthony’s Take: Low-cost carriers like Breeze Airways and Avelo Airlines are filling in the gaps and serving smaller airports with new routes to easily connect passengers that are not in major metro areas.
