Coming off the back of a strong year, which saw the carrier build on an 85% surge in customer growth, Avelo Airlines enters 2024 as one of America’s most reliable airlines.

According to market research firm Anuvu, Avelo achieved the U.S. airline industry’s lowest flight cancellation rate and ranked #2 in on-time performance in 2023.

Flight Cancellation Rate 2023

Research firm Anuvu is a leading provider of connectivity and entertainment solutions for the worldwide aviation and maritime industries.

Avelo Airlines achieved a major feat in 2023 by recording the lowest flight cancellation rate in the entire U.S. airline industry.

While the industry average stood at 1.3%, Avelo canceled just 0.18% of its flights, demonstrating a remarkable commitment to reliability.

Comparing this with its 2022 performance, where it already boasted the second-lowest cancellation rate at 0.85%, Avelo’s dedication to improvement is evident.

The airline not only maintained its standing but significantly outperformed its own previous benchmark.

On-Time Performance: Expectations Surpassed

Avelo Airlines further solidified its position by ranking #2 in on-time performance according to the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) A14 metric, which evaluates flights arriving within 15 minutes of their scheduled time.

With an impressive on-time arrival rate of 82.8% in 2023, Avelo soared past the industry average of 77.7%.

Delta Air Lines held the top spot with 83.1%, but Avelo’s #2 rank marked a substantial improvement from its 2022 standing, where it secured the fourth position.
