Avelo Airlines Adds First Caribbean Destination with $99 Fares
Avelo Airlines today announced nonstop service between Southern Connecticut’s Tweed-New Haven Airport (HVN) and Puerto Rico’s San Juan Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU). San Juan is Avelo’s first destination outside the continental United States.
To celebrate the new route, Avelo is also offering introductory one-way fares between HVN and SJU start at $99. Customers can make reservations at AveloAir.com.
Avelo Airlines Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said, “A lot of people have been eagerly awaiting this news. With a large and increasing number of Puerto Ricans calling Connecticut home, this service will make reconnecting with friends and family easier and more affordable than ever. And with winter right around the corner, this Caribbean island treasure is the latest example of how Avelo is inspiring travel in new and exciting ways for Southern Connecticut. At the same time, we expect the affordability and convenience of this new route will inspire a meaningful number of travelers to visit Connecticut from Puerto Rico. This is a win-win opportunity for Connecticut and Puerto Rico. I want to thank Governor Lamont, Senator Blumenthal and so many others from across Connecticut for the leadership and vision they have demonstrated that made today possible.”
Beginning on November 15, 2023, Avelo will operate this route twice weekly on Wednesdays and Saturdays, utilizing Boeing Next-Generation (NG) 737 aircraft.
San Juan is Avelo’s first Caribbean destination – expanding the airline’s route map to 47 destinations spanning 25 states and one U.S. territory.
