Avelo Airlines Departs for Puerto Rico

Nov. 15, 2023

Avelo Airlines will depart today for the first time beyond the continental U.S.— inaugurating exclusive nonstop service to San Juan, Puerto Rico from Greater Philly and New Haven, Conn. These two new routes will connect the Island of Enchantment with two of America’s largest Puerto Rican communities.

The airline also announced through the first 10 months of 2023, Avelo achieved the lowest flight cancellation rate (0.12%) and the best on-time performance in the U.S. airline industry with 82.8% of all flights arriving within 15 minutes of their scheduled arrival time (source: Anuvu).

Avelo is the only airline offering nonstop service between Puerto Rico’s San Juan Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU) and Southern Connecticut’s most convenient airport – Tweed-New Haven Airport (HVN) and the Greater Philadelphia / Delaware Valley’s Wilmington Airport (ILG) – a convenient and travel-friendly alternative to Philadelphia International Airport (PHL).

Avelo operates both routes twice weekly on Wednesdays and Saturdays, utilizing Boeing Next-Generation 737 aircraft. Very low, one-way fares between HVN and SJU start at $99*. Customers can make reservations at AveloAir.com.

Avelo Airlines Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said, “Puerto Rico – Viaja con Avelo! We are excited to depart for San Juan today – Avelo’s first destination beyond the continental U.S. Today marks another significant milestone in Avelo’s journey to introduce a new era of convenient, affordable and reliable air travel. These exclusive nonstop routes will make travel between the Island of Enchantment and the Greater Philly and Southern Connecticut easier and faster than ever. And with two of the largest Puerto Rican populations in the U.S., Philadelphia and Connecticut were a natural choice for Avelo’s inaugural service to San Juan. We also look forward to making Puerto Rico’s famous beaches, as well as the island’s abundance of outdoor and cultural activities, more accessible to more people this winter.”
