Whether visiting friends and family or enjoying a leisurely vacation, Avelo offers time and money-saving convenience for Connecticut travelers. With 21 nonstop destinations, including eight Florida cities, flying from Tweed is easier and more affordable than ever. Additionally, when you consider our industry-leading reliability and caring Soul of Service, it is clear why almost 2 million people have flown Avelo at Tweed since 2021.”

Governor Ned Lamont said, “Tweed-New Haven Airport is a key partner in our overall efforts to attract business and job growth in the New Haven region. More flights and travel options help ensure that the region has the reliable transportation opportunities needed for our economic growth.”

Avports LLC. CEO Jorge Roberts said, “We are excited that Avelo Airlines continues to expand flights connecting the people and communities of Southern Connecticut to new destinations across the country. These new routes from Avelo mark a significant milestone in Tweed-New Haven Airport’s ongoing efforts to provide more convenient, affordable, and efficient travel options. We look forward to our continued partnership with Avelo in support of their work to give passengers increased connectivity and top-notch customer service.”

Avelo is distinguished by its industry-leading reliability. In 2023, the airline achieved the lowest flight cancellation rate in the U.S. airline industry and ranked #2 in on-time reliability. These results are based on Anuvu’s third-party data platform (the same company and platform utilized by The Wall Street Journal for the publication’s annual best and worst airline ranking, -which excluded Avelo as well as other airlines in its coverage that did not meet the publication’s size threshold).
