Avelo Airlines continues its East Coast expansion today with its first flight nonstop from Southern Connecticut to Fort Myers, Fla.
Southwest Florida is the fourth destination Avelo serves from Southern Connecticut’s most convenient airport – Tweed-New Haven Airport (HVN).
Introductory one-way fares between HVN and Fort Myers’ Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) starting at $49* are available at AveloAir.com.
“As we continue our East Coast service expansion, we are excited to take flight today for Fort Myers – Avelo’s fourth popular sun-soaked Florida destination,” said Avelo Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy.
“With our very low introductory fares and the amazing convenience of HVN, getting to Southwest Florida is easier and more affordable than ever.”
This service on Boeing Next Generation 737-700 aircraft operates Thursday and Sunday.
The flight will depart HVN at 2:30 p.m. and arrive RSW at 5:50 p.m. The returning flight will depart RSW at 6:30 p.m. and arrive HVN at 9:25 p.m.
“Today’s first departure destined for Fort Myers is yet another exciting milestone in our rapidly growing partnership with Avelo here at HVN,” said Tweed-New Haven Airport Executive Director Sean Scanlon.
“The energy here at the airport and in the community in the last few days has been incredible as we kick off a new and more vibrant era at HVN.”
“We are very pleased to welcome Avelo Airlines to Southwest Florida International Airport today,” said Ben Siegel, CPA, C.M., executive director of the Lee County Port Authority.
“It is exciting to have a new air carrier at RSW and our first nonstop service to New Haven, Connecticut.”

Fort Myers is the fourth of six popular Florida destinations Avelo serves from HVN.
In addition to Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Orlando and Tampa Bay, Avelo will begin flying to Palm Beach and Sarasota in the weeks ahead.
