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 travelenhancing 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.
