Avelo Airlines announced today it is expanding service at Daytona Beach International Airport (DAB) with exclusive nonstop flights to Delaware’s Wilmington Airport (ILG) – a convenient and easy alternative to Philadelphia International Airport (PHL). Avelo will be the only airline flying between Daytona Beach and The First State.
Wilmington Airport is conveniently located a short drive south of Philadelphia – offering a refreshingly smooth and simple hometown airport experience. ILG’s adjacency to multiple major highways makes it the Delaware Valley’s most convenient and travel-friendly airport, encompassing portions of four states: Delaware, Southeastern Pennsylvania, South Jersey and the northern Eastern Shore of Maryland.
Avelo’s nonstop service from DAB to Wilmington will begin on June 23 and operate twice-weekly on Mondays and Fridays utilizing 189-seat Boeing Next-Generation 737-800 aircraft. Introductory one-way fares between DAB and ILG start at $49*. Customers can make reservations at AveloAir.com.
Avelo Airlines Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said, “Daytona Beach – just two weeks since announcing Avelo’s arrival at DAB, we’re at it again! This new route to the Wilmington / Philadelphia area exemplifies our ongoing commitment to bringing Avelo’s low fares, industry-leading reliability and caring service to Daytona Beach travelers. Getting to the four-state Delaware Valley region is now easier than ever.”
Daytona Beach International Airport Director Karen Feaster said, “We are thrilled that our second non-stop flight on Avelo will launch the day after the inaugural flight from New Haven. Wilmington, Delaware is another strong market for travelers coming to and traveling from DAB. Adding these flights just in time for summer travel is sure to bring new visitors to our beautiful area and give our locals a great new non-stop destination.”
Avelo will now serve two nonstop destinations from DAB. Wilmington will join Connecticut’s most convenient airport — Tweed-New Haven Airport (HVN).
America’s Affordable and Convenient Airline
Avelo was founded with a vision to help its Customers save money and time. Since taking flight on April 28, 2021, Avelo has flown more than two million Customers on over 17,000 flights.
In addition to offering Customers everyday low fares on every route, Avelo Customers can always change or cancel their itineraries with no extra fees. Avelo also offers several unbundled travel-enhancing options that give Customers the flexibility to pay for what they value, including priority boarding, checked bags, carry-on overhead bags, and bringing a pet in the cabin.
Additionally, the American-made Boeing 737 jets Avelo flies offer a more spacious and comfortable experience than the small regional aircraft currently operating at most of the airports Avelo serves. Customers who value an advance seat assignment can choose from several modestly priced seating options, including seats with extra leg room, as well as pre-reserved window and aisle seating. One third of seats on Avelo aircraft are available for Customers who appreciate the comfort of extra legroom.
Avelo serves 43 destinations spanning 24 states. The airline has unlocked a new era of convenience, choice and competition in air travel by flying unserved routes to primarily underserved communities across the country. At least one airport on every Avelo flight is a small hometown airport – making every Avelo journey easier and more enjoyable.
At Avelo, every flight is also nonstop. This connection-free travel experience not only provides Avelo Customers with a faster and simpler travel experience, but also minimizes delays, cancellations and lost bags. In fact, Avelo has established itself as one of America’s most reliable airlines with industry-leading on time, completion factor and checked bag handling performance.
