Avelo Airlines takes off for the first time from Houston where the carrier was founded and operates its national Support Centre.

The airline’s first Houston flight will inaugurate nonstop service between William P. Hobby Airport (HOU) and Tweed-New Haven Airport (HVN).

Avelo is the only airline offering nonstop service from the city of Houston to the state of Connecticut.

Avelo will operate this route twice weekly on Mondays and Fridays, operating Boeing Next-Generation 737 aircraft.

Avelo was founded in Houston in 2018 and made its public debut in April 2021 with its first flight from Los Angeles’ Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) to the Bay Area’s Sonoma County Airport (STS).

Andrew Levy, Avelo Airlines Founder and CEO said: “Today marks a significant milestone as we inaugurate Avelo’s first flight from our home city of Houston.

“This route will also connect our airline’s national Support Center (headquarters) with the largest of our six bases.

“Avelo will be the only airline connecting Houston and Connecticut – which will make getting to the gateway to New England and New York easier, faster and more affordable than ever.

“The flight will also make traveling to Houston a simpler and smoother experience for Connecticut visitors.

“And when you consider we’ll be flying from Houston’s most convenient airport – Hobby – it’s easy to appreciate why we are so excited about Avelo’s H-Town debut today.”

Jim Szczesniak, Director of Aviation for Houston Airports said: “Houston Airports is proud to celebrate the launch of Avelo Airlines’ new nonstop service from Hobby Airport to Connecticut.

“This exciting partnership offers our passengers even more convenient travel options between Houston and the Northeast. Avelo’s commitment to affordability perfectly aligns with our mission of connecting people, businesses, and cultures to Houston.

“With this new route, Hobby Airport further strengthens its position as Skytrax’s Best Regional Airport in North America.”
