Avelo Airlines has announced 3 new routes from its Connecticut hub at Tweed-New Haven Airport (HVN).
The low-cost carrier will soon begin nonstop service to Baltimore-Washington (BWI), Chicago (MDW), and Raleigh-Durham (RDU).
These 3 new routes, all starting on May 26, 2022, join the 4 nonstop routes that were announced in February and follow the airline’s 100,000-customer milestone it just reached at its new Connecticut hub.
“It’s abundantly clear that Tweed’s unmatched convenience is making travel easier, smoother, and more affordable than ever before,” said Andrew Levy, CEO at Avelo Airlines. “We believe these new destinations will be a big hit with leisure and business travelers alike.”
Avelo’s Tweed-New Haven Base Continues To Grow
After just 4 months of operating flights out of Tweed-New Haven (HVN), the announcement brings the total number of nonstop destinations served by Avelo to 13.
The new flights will operate on the following days:
|From New Haven (HVN) to: ||Days Offered |
|Baltimore-Washington (BWI)||Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays|
|Chicago Midway (MDW)||Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays|
|Raleigh-Durham (RDU)||Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays|
When the flights arrive at their destinations for the first time on May 26, 2022, it will also mark Avelo’s presence in the states of Illinois, Maryland, and North Carolina for the first time.
As it stands, no other airline currently operates flights on the aforementioned city pairs. This means Avelo will be providing new business and leisure travel opportunities for those living both in the Tweed-New Haven and wider Connecticut area, as well the soon-to-be connected cities of Baltimore, Chicago, Durham, Raleigh, and Washington, D.C.
“More destinations from Tweed helps expand access to the New Haven region, which means more opportunities to increase our economic viability and enhance business growth,” said Ned Lamont, Governor of Connecticut.
The new routes will be operated by one of the airline’s Boeing 737-800 aircraft — the only aircraft in Avelo’s fleet.
Its cabins are made up of 189 economy class seats in 32 3-3 configured rows.
Bottom Line: The addition of the 3 new routes shows a shift in focus of Avelo’s Tweed-New Haven route network, which initially focused on nonstop services to warmer destinations in more southern states.
Avelo Airlines is expanding quickly out of its Connecticut base at Tweed-New Haven Airport (HVN).
The latest service additions to Baltimore-Washington (BWI), Chicago (MDW), and Raleigh-Durham (RDU) will provide exciting new travel connections for those living both in Connecticut and its 3 new destinations.
