Low cost carrier Avelo Airlines is introducing jetliner service to its fifth Florida destination with the launch of flights between Connecticut’s Tweed-New Haven Airport (HVN) and Palm Beach International Airport (PBI).
The service on 147-seat Boeing Next Generation 737-700 aircraft is set to begin Dec. 16, and will operate daily until Jan. 5, when it will drop back to 5-times weekly, Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
Avelo’s Florida services, which are scheduled to debut Nov 3, include flights to Fort Lauderdale and Orlando. New Haven to Tampa International Airport (TPA) service is set to begin Nov. 8. Flights to Fort Myers’ Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) are scheduled to begin Nov. 11.
In addition to the Palm Beach service, the carrier has announced increase frequencies on these other routes through the peak holiday season. Also starting Dec. 16, flights between New Haven and Fort Myers, will increase from three days per week to daily, and service to Tampa will move from four days per week to daily through January 4.
Avelo will be the first airline to offer nonstop flights between Tweed-New Haven Airport and destinations in Florida. The airline’s addition also marks the largest expansion of service at HVN in more than 30 years.
Avelo initiated service from its first base at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) on April 28. The airline currently serves 10 popular destinations across the Western US, with introductory low fares starting at $59 one-way.
