Avelo Airlines started offering service at Tweed-New Haven Airport (HVN) in the fall of 2021, ushering in a new era of convenient, reliable and affordable air service for business travelers. The airline’s arrival also created more than 100 airline jobs and is contributing to near-term local economic impact exceeding $20 million. If you haven’t yet booked a flight on Avelo Airlines, here’s what you need to know about this closer-to-home convenience.

About Avelo New Haven

Avelo Airlines is relatively new to the air travel industry, making its inaugural flight in April 2021 with the goal of inspiring travel with convenient, affordable and reliable air travel options. While aiming to offer affordable air travel options to passengers by focusing on providing a no-frills experience at lower fares, Avelo also flies out of smaller, more convenient airports, saving you the time and hassle of traveling to major city airports.

Other than Avelo New Haven, the airline serves over 40 destinations from its bases at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR), Orlando International Airport (MCO), the Delaware Valley’s Wilmington Airport (ILG), and Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU).

Key Features of Traveling via Avelo New Haven

  • Route Network: Avelo primarily focuses on serving underserved or secondary airports in the United States, aiming to provide passengers with more direct routes to destinations that might not be as well-covered by larger airlines.
  • Fleet: Avelo Airlines operates one of the most fuel-efficient fleets in the industry with its Boeing 737 fleet, consisting of Next-Generation 737- 700s and 800s.
  • Low-Cost Approach: Avelo Airlines follows the ultra-low-cost carrier model, offering a base fare for flights and charging additional fees for optional services such as seat selection, baggage, and in-flight amenities. This approach allows passengers to customize their travel experience according to their preferences.
  • Simple Booking Process: Avelo aims to simplify the booking process and minimize hidden fees by clearly outlining the costs associated with different services during the booking process.
  • In-Flight Experience: Avelo’s in-flight offerings are likely to be more basic compared to traditional airlines. Passengers could expect to pay for amenities such as in-flight entertainment, snacks, and beverages, though some flights do not offer these amenities.
