In late May, Avelo will begin its first route from BWI, servicing Southern Connecticut via Connecticut’s most convenient airport – Tweed-New Haven Airport (HVN).

The airline also announced it will open the airline’s third base at Orlando International Airport (MCO) this June — joining Avelo’s West Coast base at Los Angeles’ popular Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) and its first East Coast base at Southern Connecticut’s most convenient airport – Tweed-New Haven Airport (HVN). Avelo also announced today it is adding Wilmington, NC to its rapidly expanding network of popular East Coast destinations.

Avelo anticipates that over time its MCO base will contribute tens of millions of dollars in positive economic impact. In the years ahead, this includes significant spending and tax revenue from the hundreds of thousands of visitors Avelo will fly to Orlando, as well as incremental spending and tax revenue from the thousands of direct and indirect jobs Avelo’s expanding MCO presence will contribute to the Orlando community and the state of Florida.

Three New MCO Destinations: Avelo expects to serve at least 10 nonstop destinations from MCO by the end of 2022 (including HVN, which it currently serves). This summer, Avelo will begin serving three new destinations from MCO:

  • Charleston, SC: Beginning June 30, 2022, Avelo will begin service three days per week to Charleston International Airport (CHS) utilizing 737-700 aircraft. Introductory one-way fares start at $39*.
  • Washington, D.C.Between June 30 and September 6, 2022, Avelo will offer seasonal service five days per week to Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) utilizing 737-700 aircraft. Introductory one-way fares start at $59*.
  • Wilmington, NC: Beginning July 1, 2022, Avelo will begin service three days per week to Wilmington International Airport (ILM) utilizing 737-700 aircraft. Introductory one-way fares start at $49*.

With the addition of these three new destinations to its current service to HVN, Avelo will now fly to four nonstop destinations from MCO.

Expanded Service Between MCO and Southern Connecticut: Avelo currently operates daily nonstop flights to HVN. Beginning June 16, 2022, this will expand to three flights per day on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, and two flights per day on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. That’s 19 flights per week between MCO and Southern Connecticut.

MCO-Based Aircraft: Over the summer, Avelo will initially take delivery of and base two Boeing Next-Generation (NG) 737s at MCO. The airline expects to base additional 737 NGs at MCO in the third and fourth quarters. Avelo’s systemwide fleet will consist of at least 15 737 NGs by the end of 2022.

New Integrated Flight Crew Training: Avelo announced that it is converging its airline-wide Flight Attendant and Pilot training in Orlando. Beginning this summer, all training for Avelo Flight Attendants and Pilots will be facilitated by Avenger Flight Group (AFG) — the world’s largest privately owned commercial aviation training and simulation company. Avelo expects the training program to be fully implemented in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Previously conducted in separate locations and, at times, with separate companies, Avelo’s Flight Attendant and Pilot training will now be conducted at AFG’s state-of-the-art Orlando campus. AFG provides advanced flight training solutions to airlines around the world at nearly 20 flight training centers across North AmericaSouth America and Europe. The new AFG-based training will provide opportunities for collaborative learning and training in areas such as leadership, evacuation simulations and customer service.

Avelo has more than 160 Flight Attendants and Pilots. The airline anticipates hiring hundreds more in the years ahead.
