CBIA BizCast host Ali Warshavsky speaks with Travis Christ, chief marketing officer for Avelo Air, about the airline maintaining its low-fare strategy as inflation drives up the cost of fuel and other supplies.

Avelo launched in 2021 in Burbank, California, and made its maiden flight from Connecticut’s Tweed New Haven Airport last November.

The demand was so high for the flights Avelo offered to six Florida cities, Christ said it expanded to a total of 14 destinations, despite many airlines facing a shortage of pilots.

“We do fly 737s, which is a main line big jet which is what pilots want to fly,” said Christ. 

“For the pilots who want to fly home every night and do not want to be on the road all the time, it’s a great option.”
