Travelers can also participate in the airline’s “1 Year Anniversary Sweepstakes” to earn free flights for a year
Avelo Airlines, the ultra-low-cost carrier headquartered in Houston, recently announced 5 new routes in the United States as part of their anniversary celebration. In June and July, the airline will be offering non-stop flights on the East Coast, connecting Orlando, Charleston, Washington, and Wilmington.
The carrier is celebrating its first anniversary —it was launched just a few days before its competitor Breeze Airways— and also announced that it will be opening a third base at Orlando International Airport (MCO).
To celebrate this accomplishment, the carrier is offering ultra-low promotional one-way fares, starting at $29, including taxes and fees! But travelers must book soon, the anniversary fares are limited and expire on May 5. Customers must also remember that this is a low-cost service, and that other fees —like carry on, checked bags, and assigned seats— do apply.
Andrew Levy —Avelo Airlines Founder, Chairman, and CEO— said, “Avelo is poised for continued growth as we add more planes, more Crew Members, more destinations, and more bases — including our new base in Orlando. I’m very appreciative of the warm reception The Sunshine State has greeted Avelo with since we began flying here last November. I’m looking forward to the positive economic and community impact Avelo will make in Orlando and across Florida as we increase our investment here in the years ahead.”
As part of their celebration, Avelo Airlines is currently promoting its “1 Year Anniversary Sweepstake” in which customers can win one year of free flights for two. Travelers interested in participating must follow the airline on Instagram and tag two friends in the comments. All details and rules are available on the company’s official site.
For being an airline not many have heard of, Avelo actually has quite an impressive route system, and it’s still growing.
