"We are thrilled to welcome Avelo Airlines to our market," said Ricky Smith, Executive Director of BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport. "Avelo offers low fares, convenient access, and added tourism to Maryland and the entire National Capital region. We remain committed to growing our air service portfolio and adding new travel options for our customers."

Tweed-New Haven Airport – The New Haven Way to Connecticut
Amidst the crowds, long lines, lengthy walks and traffic congestion encountered at other airports frequented by travelers to and from the region, HVN offers a refreshingly smooth and simple alternative hometown airport experience. HVN's adjacency to multiple major highways and commuter railways make it Connecticut's most convenient and easily accessible airport.

Tweed-New Haven Airport Executive Director Sean Scanlon said, "The addition of flights to Washington D.C./Baltimore is yet another important milestone in the overwhelming success story that is our partnership with Avelo. Starting this week, we now serve thirteen destinations and are offering service to major business hubs for the first time since the 1990s. The future is bright here at HVN and if you haven't flown with us yet, come see what all the hype is about!"

Best known as the home of Yale University, New Haven is the second largest city in Connecticut and is part of the New York metropolitan area. The coastal city has experienced—and continues to enjoy—a renaissance. Within an easy stroll from the New Haven Green are more than 100 distinctive restaurants, offering something for every palate, and the city abounds with theaters, museums, and shopping destinations to satisfy all interests and tastes.

A Different, Better and More Affordable Travel Experience
Avelo offers several unbundled travel-enhancing options that give Customers the flexibility to pay for what they value, including priority boarding, checked bags, carry-on overhead bags, and bringing a pet in the cabin.

The American-made Boeing 737 NG mainline jets Avelo operates from HVN offer a more spacious and comfortable experience than the regional jets that historically served this airport. Customers may choose from several seating options, including seats with extra leg room, as well as pre-reserved window and aisle seating.

Avelo is distinguished by its Soul of Service culture. The culture is grounded in Avelo's "One Crew" value that promotes a welcoming and caring experience. By caring for one another and owning their commitments, Avelo Crewmembers focus on anticipating and understanding Customer needs on the ground and in the air.
