Avelo Adds New Destinations From Tweed
Travelers will soon have new options when flying out of Tweed-New Haven Airport.
Avelo Airlines announced that, beginning in May, it is expanding service from Tweed to four new nonstop destinations—Atlanta, Charlotte, NC, Knoxville, TN, and Destin, FL.
Avelo said they are the only airline to offer nonstop flights from Connecticut to Knoxville and Destin, and the only low-fare airline offering flights to Atlanta and Charlotte.
With the addition of the new routes, Avelo now offers nonstop flights from Tweed to 21 destinations.
The airline said that’s more than any other airline operating in the state.
“We are excited to offer Southern Connecticut residents even more travel options,” said Avelo Airlines Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy.
Since 2021, Levy said almost 2 million people have flown Avelo at Tweed.
“These new routes from Avelo mark a significant milestone in Tweed-New Haven Airport’s ongoing efforts to provide more convenient, affordable, and efficient travel options,” said Avports CEO Jorge Roberts.
Avports operates Tweed.
Tweed-New Haven Regional Airport Authority chairman Matt Hoey said the new routes are about more than enhancing Tweed’s offerings.
“It also drives economic development for our entire region,” he said.
“By providing direct, cost-effective flights to desirable destinations, we’re making New Haven a gateway for both leisure and business travelers.”
The Atlanta and Charlotte routes begin May 2, while Knoxville service starts May 9, and Destin begins May 17.
Avelo is offering introductory one-way $62 fares for the new routes.
The fares must be booked by Feb. 13 on travel through May 21, and additional fees for carry-on and checked bags and assigned seats may apply.
