Avelo Airlines Starts Flying Out of Wilmington Airport
Avelo Airlines takes flight for the first time today from the Delaware Valley’s Wilmington Airport (ILG). Avelo Airlines’ inaugural flight departed for Orlando at 10:00 a.m. ET, the first of five nonstop Florida destinations Avelo begins serving this week. Low one-way fares starting at $49 are available at AveloAir.com.
Avelo’s new ILG base will enable nonstop flights to five popular Florida destinations: Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Fort Myers (RSW), Orlando (MCO), Tampa (TPA) and West Palm Beach (PBI). Avelo will fly to Fort Lauderdale on Thursdays and Sundays; Fort Myers on Mondays and Fridays; Orlando on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays; Tampa on Thursdays and Sundays; and West Palm Beach on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Wilmington Airport offers a smooth, simple and friendly alternative hometown airport experience. ILG’s adjacency to multiple major highways makes it the Delaware Valley’s most convenient and travel-friendly airport for two million people residing in portions of four states: Delaware, Southeastern Pennsylvania / Philadelphia, South Jersey and the northern Eastern Shore of Maryland. There’s parking just steps from the airport entrance, a swift TSA screening process, and customers can claim their checked bags as soon as they step inside the terminal from their arriving flight.
Avelo is basing one Boeing Next-Generation (NG) 737-700 at ILG. The airline is considering adding a second 737 later this year, enabling additional destinations.
