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 carrier has been adding lots of new destinations and has expanded to serve 25 states and Puerto Rico recently. Today, it announced that it’s trimming the schedule and dropping the axe on two routes to Florida. Service between Melbourne Orlando International Airport (MLB) and Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) and Wilmington Airport (ILG).
The flights to Wilmington are being cancelled before they begin and the Raleigh route was only around 30% full and is being dropped due to low demand. Avelo relies heavily on leisure travelers to vacation destinations like Las Vegas and Orlando. It frequently adds and adjusts routes based on demand.
Anthony’s Take: Avelo continues to modify its network and this cut comes just days after its latest expansion into San Juan. If it doesn’t make financial sense, the airline should cut routes.
