A Fun-in-the-Sun Destination:

 

Orlando: Theme Park Capital of the World

Wonder awaits in Orlando with endless excitement and unforgettable adventures. Whether it’s a trip for families, couples, single travelers or a group of friends, Orlando is the perfect destination that ensures a memorable vacation filled with unique experiences for every visitor. While Orlando is known as the Theme Park Capital of the World for its incredible parks and attractions, there’s so much more to enjoy. The destination is also home to sizzling nightlife and a vibrant entertainment scene, craft breweries, wineries, professional sports teams and so much more.

A Different, Better and More Affordable Travel Experience

Since taking flight in April 2021, Avelo has emerged as one of the airline industry’s most reliable airlines. The airline has cancelled fewer than one percent of its flights and consistently delivers an industry-leading on-time performance rate, when excluding factors outside Avelo’s control (such as weather and air traffic control delays)

At Avelo, there are no change or cancellation fees. 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 jets Avelo flies offer a more spacious and comfortable experience than the small regional aircraft historically operating at many of the small hometown airports Avelo serves. 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 which 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.
