Avelo Airlines Surpasses Flying 25,000 Customers at Daytona Beach with Industry-Leading Affordability, Reliability and Convenience

  • Avelo celebrates milestone with low one-way fares start at $91

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.; April 17, 2024 — Avelo Airlines today celebrates flying over 25,000 Customers at the Daytona Beach International Airport (DAB). This milestone is a validation of the industry-leading affordability, reliability and convenience Avelo has introduced to Daytona Beach travelers since taking flight at DAB in June 2023.

To celebrate this occasion, Avelo is offering travel-inspiring one-way fares as low as $91* from DAB. The commemorative fare is available at AveloAir.com.

Since the airline began service in Daytona Beach, Avelo has flown over 25,000 Customers on just over 180 flights. Avelo currently serves Southern Connecticut’s most convenient airport – Tweed-New Haven Airport (HVN) with twice-weekly flights to HVN on Mondays and Fridays. Avelo will add flights on Wednesdays beginning June 12, 2024, and will fly to Southern Connecticut three days per week during peak summer.

Avelo Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said, “Since arriving at Daytona Beach less than one year ago, Avelo has introduced travelers to a new era of affordability, convenience and reliability. Today’s milestone demonstrates the appeal our low fares, nonstop access and friendly service are having with travelers throughout the region. It is also clear the fast and easy travel-friendly experience DAB offers has played an equally significant role in inspiring so many people to fly with us. I am grateful to every Avelo Customer who has chosen Avelo.”

Avelo is distinguishing itself as one America’s most reliable airlines. In the first quarter of 2024, Avelo reported the industry’s second-best on-time performance and the second-lowest flight cancellation rate of any U.S. carrier. Avelo’s Q1 2024 performance builds on the airline’s 2023 full-year reliability leadership which delivered the lowest flight cancellation rate in the U.S. airline industry and ranked #2 in on-time reliability.

These results are based on Anuvu’s independent third-party data platform (the same company and platform utilized by The Wall Street Journal for the publication’s annual best and worst airline ranking, which excluded Avelo as well as other airlines in its coverage that did not meet the publication’s size threshold). Avelo posts Anuvu’s monthly industry reliability rankings and metrics at AveloAir.com.
