Lowest Flight Cancellation Rate

Avelo not only excels in on-time performance but also boasts the lowest YTD flight cancellation rate among all U.S. carriers, standing at an impressive 0.12%.

This notable feat significantly outshines the industry average of 1.5%. Avelo’s commitment to keeping its flights on schedule is unwavering.

Bag Handling

Avelo takes pride in its industry-leading bag handling, mishandling only 3 bags per 1,000 checked bags through October.

This is also something of a noteworthy achievement, considering the industry average of 7 mishandled bags per 1,000 checked bags.

Performance to Date

Since its inaugural flight on April 28, 2021, Avelo has soared to new heights, serving over 3.5 million Customers on more than 27,000 flights.

Operating in 44 destinations across 23 states and Puerto Rico, Avelo has become synonymous with convenience, choice, and competition.

Avelo has redefined air travel by focusing on unserved routes to underserved communities. What sets the airline apart is its commitment to utilizing small, easy-to-use airports, ensuring a seamless and enjoyable journey for every passenger.

Customer-Centric Policies

Avelo goes the extra mile for its customers. The airline allows itinerary changes or cancellations with no extra fees, providing flexibility and peace of mind.

Families can travel worry-free, as every child aged 13 and under is automatically seated with an accompanying adult at no additional cost.

For those who value extra legroom, the carrier offers advanced seat assignments, with one-third of its seats providing 32 to over 36 inches of legroom.

The airline also provides unbundled travel options, allowing its customers to pay only for the services they value, such as priority boarding, checked bags, carry-on overhead bags, and even bringing a pet in the cabin.
