Viva Las Vegas! Dubuque Hits the Jackpot with Start of Avelo Airlines’ Nonstop Flights to Las Vegas

  • Very low, one-way fares to Vegas start at $69

DUBUQUE, Iowa; Sept. 13, 2023 — Avelo Airlines takes off for Las Vegas with exclusive nonstop service from Dubuque Regional Airport (DBQ). Las Vegas is the second destination that Avelo serves from DBQ, joining Orlando, Florida.

This route to The Sports and Entertainment Capital of the World operates twice weekly on Wednesdays and Saturdays, utilizing Boeing Next Generation 737 aircraft. Very low, one-way fares start at $69*. Customers can make reservations at AveloAir.com.

Avelo Airlines Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said, “We are excited to add another exclusive nonstop route for our tri-state Customers to The Sports and Entertainment Capital of the World. We have been very encouraged by the initial response to Avelo’s arrival at DBQ and believe Las Vegas will be another winning bet. Vegas has something for everyone and Avelo’s affordability, convenience and reliability hits the jackpot on getting to this popular destination.”

Avelo has quickly emerged as one of the nation’s most reliable airlines. Avelo ranks #1 for completion factor, meaning the airline cancels the least number of flights and Avelo ranks #2 year-to-date in the U.S in on-time performance, making travel as simple, convenient and reliable as possible.

Dubuque Regional Airport offers a refreshingly fast, smooth and welcoming hometown airport experience. Dubuque’s adjacency to multiple major highways makes it the most convenient and travel-friendly airport in the area, supporting three surrounding states.

City of Dubuque Mayor Brad Cavanagh said, “As we work to restore full connection by air from the Dubuque Regional Airport to the rest of the U.S., we could not be more excited with this new nonstop flight to Las Vegas. Avelo has been an incredible partner, and we thank them for this additional flight and their continued partnership in the years ahead.”

President and CEO Dubuque Area Chamber of Commerce Molly Grover said, “We are thrilled to add a nonstop, westbound Las Vegas Avelo service at Dubuque Regional Airport. Avelo continues to offer a highly desired, reliable and affordable option for leisure air travel for people that live, work, play and do business in our tri-state area. This is an exciting opportunity for us to capture market share that has been previously unattainable. Viva Las Vegas!”

Dubuque Regional Airport Chair Mike Phillips said, “We are excited to add Avelo nonstop service to Las Vegas in addition to existing Orlando service to the tri-state area. We are truly thankful to be a part of their amazing network. Travelers will appreciate the ease and convenience of flying direct from DBQ as well as our other amenities such as free parking. Airport Commission and staff encourage tri state travelers to utilize DBQ flights to retain and continue to expand service.”

America’s Affordable and Convenient Airline

Avelo was founded with a vision to help its Customers save money and time. Since taking flight on April 28, 2021, Avelo has flown over 3.1 million Customers on over 25,000 flights.

Today, Avelo serves 45 destinations spanning 23 states and Puerto Rico. The airline has unlocked a new era of convenience, choice and competition in air travel by flying unserved routes to primarily underserved communities across the country. At least one airport on every Avelo flight is a small hometown airport – making every Avelo journey easier and more enjoyable.

In addition to offering Customers everyday low fares on every route, Avelo Customers can always change or cancel their itineraries with no extra fees. Avelo also 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.

Additionally, the 16 American-made Boeing 737 jets Avelo flies offer a more spacious and comfortable experience than the small regional aircraft currently operating at most of the airports Avelo serves. Customers who value an advance seat assignment can choose from several modestly priced seating options, including seats with extra leg room, as well as pre-reserved window and aisle seating. One third of seats on Avelo aircraft are available for Customers who appreciate the comfort of extra legroom.

At Avelo, every flight is also nonstop. This connection-free travel experience not only provides Avelo Customers with faster and simpler travel, but also minimizes delays, cancellations and lost bags. In fact, Avelo has established itself as one of America’s most reliable airlines.
