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 has been rapidly adding and cutting routes as it figures out a profitable schedule. Two of the most recent additions connect Wilmington Airport (ILG) and Tweed-New Haven Airport (HVN) with San Juan’s Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport (SJU). Avelo will operate both routes 2x weekly on Wednesdays and Saturdays on a Boeing Next-Generation 737 aircraft. The first flights for these new routes took to the skies today. This marked the carrier’s first flights outside of the continental United States.
Avelo Airlines, Chairman and CEO, Andrew Levy said:
Puerto Rico – Viaja con Avelo! We are excited to depart for San Juan today – Avelo’s first destination beyond the continental U.S. Today marks another significant milestone in Avelo’s journey to introduce a new era of convenient, affordable and reliable air travel. These exclusive nonstop routes will make travel between the Island of Enchantment and the Greater Philly and Southern Connecticut easier and faster than ever. And with two of the largest Puerto Rican populations in the U.S., Philadelphia and Connecticut were a natural choice for Avelo’s inaugural service to San Juan. We also look forward to making Puerto Rico’s famous beaches, as well as the island’s abundance of outdoor and cultural activities, more accessible to more people this winter.”
These new routes are good for vacationers as well as those looking to visit family and friends. Connecticut is home to roughly 300,000 Puerto Ricans (one of the highest percentages in the nation) and there are another 90,000 Puerto Ricans in the greater New Haven region.
Anthony’s Take: I have this weird desire to fly out of Delaware in order to add the airport and state to my list. I also want to check out Avelo Airlines service and experience, overall. I’ll look for a flight to review this winter.
