Avelo Airlines is adding three new popular leisure and business destinations from Southern Connecticut as it surpasses flying 100,000 Customers at the state’s most convenient airport – Tweed-New Haven Airport (HVN).
Beginning in late May, Avelo will add exclusive nonstop service between HVN and Baltimore-Washington, Chicago and Raleigh-Durham.

- Chicago starts at $69*
With these three new routes, Avelo will now serve more nonstop destinations from Connecticut than any other airline – expanding Avelo’s East Coast network from HVN to 13 nonstop destinations.
Avelo Airlines Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said, “The 100,000-Customer milestone we achieved in four short months exemplifies the enormous amount of travel Avelo is inspiring in Connecticut.
“It’s abundantly clear that Tweed’s unmatched convenience is making travel easier, smoother and more affordable than ever before.
“We believe these three new destinations will be a big hit with leisure and business travelers alike.
“This milestone and the many more to come wouldn’t be possible without the professionalism and teamwork of Avelo’s exceptional 100 HVN-based Crewmembers and their commitment to this community.”
Avelo currently flies between HVN and six sun-soaked Florida destinations: Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Orlando, Sarasota/Bradenton, Tampa and West Palm Beach.
The airline recently announced it will begin flying to Myrtle Beach, Nashville, Charleston and Savannah-Hilton Head in early May.
Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont said: “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.
“Avelo’s continued growth in Connecticut is helping to strengthen connectivity for companies that are already here and will stimulate further regional development.”
New Haven Mayor Justin Elicker said, “Since making New Haven their East Coast base, Avelo has created over 100 New Haven-based jobs with 100 more to come by the end of the year.
“The addition of these three new business and leisure routes along with reaching the milestone of over 100,000 Customers served at Tweed Airport is further proof of the demand there is in Greater New Haven for an easily accessible airport closer to home.
“Residents from throughout New Haven and the region are clearly excited about have an economical alternative to flying out of airports in Hartford and New York.”
