Avelo Airlines has just announced the launch of an exclusive nonstop service between Central Wisconsin Airport (CWA) and Orlando International Airport (MCO).

As the first and only low-cost airline serving CWA, Avelo is opening up new possibilities for affordable and convenient air travel from Central Wisconsin to the Theme Park Capital of the World, Central Florida.

CWA – Orlando: Affordable air travel

With the airline’s latest announcement, Central Wisconsin residents can look forward to a refreshingly fast and smooth airport experience right at the heart of Wisconsin, in Mosinee, between Stevens Point and Wausau.

This exclusive nonstop service to Orlando eliminates the need for long drives to distant Wisconsin airports or expensive connecting flights on other airlines.

Avelo Airlines is all set to operate this route twice a week on Thursdays and Sundays, starting from October 5, 2023. The service will be operated by the new Boeing Next-Generation (NG) 737 aircraft.

The convenience of the new nonstop service extends beyond the flight itself. Central Wisconsin Airport’s proximity to local communities means travelers can save both time and money.

No more gas-guzzling drives or long layovers, as Avelo aims to make air travel to Orlando easier and more affordable than ever before.


Avelo Airlines CEO statement

Andrew Levy, Chairman, and CEO of Avelo Airlines expressed his enthusiasm for this new venture, saying, “Central Wisconsin – say hello to Avelo! We are excited to announce exclusive nonstop service to Orlando.”

“Avelo’s combination of everyday low fares, industry-leading reliability, and friendly service, coupled with CWA’s time and money-saving convenience will inspire people from across the region to enjoy all Orlando has to offer.”

“Getting to the Theme Park Capital of the World is now easier and more affordable than ever. With the addition of Wisconsin to Avelo’s nationwide route network, Avelo will now serve half the United States.”

Positive impact on Wisconsin’s economy

Missy Hughes, Secretary, and CEO of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC), highlighted the significance of Avelo’s decision to extend air service to Central Wisconsin Airport.

She said, “Avelo’s decision is a win for residents of Northern and Central Wisconsin. This will create opportunities for business and recreational travel and make central Wisconsin an even more attractive place to live, work, and grow.”

“As we have seen in other regions, we know this expansion will result in new and diversified economic impacts for the local communities as they take advantage of the partnership with Avelo.”
