Avelo Airlines takes flight for the first time today from the Delaware Valley’s most convenient and easiest airport – Wilmington Airport (ILG). Avelo Airlines’ inaugural flight will depart for Orlando at 10:00 a.m. ET — the first of five nonstop Florida destinations Avelo begins serving this week.
The opening of Avelo’s fourth base at ILG today unlocks a new era of convenient, affordable and reliable air service for the Delaware Valley region.
Very low one-way fares starting at $49* are available at AveloAir.com.
Avelo Airlines Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said, “Delaware Valley – it’s time to say Hello, Avelo! Last October, we announced our plans to bring convenient, affordable and reliable air service to the Delaware Valley region.
“The strong booking trends we are seeing across all five Florida routes make it abundantly clear that people throughout this four-state region are excited about the faster and easier way Avelo will get them to The Sunshine State.
“We’re equally excited about the Wilmington-based team we are building, as well as the opportunity to support ILG’s neighboring communities and contribute to Delaware’s economic growth.”
U.S. Senator Tom Carper said, “Like so many Delawareans, I am excited to say hello to Avelo as the airline returns commercial service to Wilmington Airport. Keeping our local airports safe, convenient, and operational is an all-hands-on-deck effort, and I welcome Avelo Airlines’ commitment to our region.
“This commercial air travel presence will support our local economy, create good-paying jobs, and help maintain a nurturing environment for business growth—a win-win-win for the First State.”
Delaware Governor John Carney said, “We are excited to welcome Avelo Airlines to Delaware. Avelo provides passengers from our region an affordable and convenient way to travel. Recent investments in Wilmington Airport’s infrastructure will lead to an effortless travel experience. Thank you to Avelo for choosing Delaware.”
New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer said, “Avelo Airlines at the Wilmington Airport provides a low cost/low stress alternative to travel. We are excited our residents will have more options when planning their trips and look forward to even more growth and places to visit.”
Delaware River and Bay Authority (the airport operator) Executive Director Thomas J. Cook said, “We’re excited that Avelo Airlines has chosen to bring its low-fare, quality service to the residents and visitors to the Delaware Valley region.
“We believe Avelo’s decision to schedule daily flights here illustrates our airport’s appeal to the low-cost airline community.
“If you’re looking to avoid the hassles of a big city airport, Wilmington Airport is for you.”
