Avelo Airlines has been growing consistently since the airline began scheduled services back in April 2021. Despite being in the middle of the pandemic, the airline has continued to grow, and with the carrier about to complete its second full year of operations, they haven’t slowed down growth and have even picked up the pace.

In the past couple of weeks, the airline has announced multiple new destinations including Nashville, Tenn.; Mobile, Ala.; and Brownsville/South Padre Island, Texas. Well, the airline has announced three more new destinations, all from their fifth and latest base in Raleigh, N.C.

New destinations in this round of announcements will include Memphis, Tenn.; Rochester, N.Y. and Manchester, N.H., the latter of which will become its first destination in New Hampshire. Flights to Memphis and Rochester will begin on June 14, 2023, whereas flights to Manchester will begin on June 21, 2023, and all of the new flights will operate on a twice-weekly basis.

The competition among carriers in Raleigh is tough as many airlines operate a hub or focus city in the city including American, Delta, Breeze, Frontier and now Avelo. This will bring Avelo up to 41 total destinations and five bases spread across the country: Burbank, Calif.; New Haven, Conn.; Orlando, Wilmington, Del. and Raleigh, N.C.

AirlineGeeks had the opportunity to go on two inaugural flights of this airline. First was the airline’s very first flight back in April of 2021 HERE, and second was the inaugural flight from Kalamazoo, Mich. which can be found HERE.

    Joe has always been interested in planes, for as long as he can remember. He grew up in Central New York during the early 2000s when US Airways Express turboprops ruled the skies. Being from a non-aviation family made it harder for him to be around planes and would only spend about three hours a month at the airport. He was so excited when he could drive by himself and the first thing he did with the license was get ice cream and go plane spotting for the entire day. When he has the time (and money) he likes to take spotting trips to any location worth a visit. He’s currently enrolled at Western Michigan University earning a degree in Aviation Management and Operations.
