On Thursday (October 21, 2021), Avelo Airlines announced the launch of service between Southern Connecticut’s Tweed-New Haven Airport (HVN) and Sarasota Bradenton International Airport (SRQ) starting January 14, 2022. Sarasota will become Avelo’s sixth Florida destination, complementing previously announced service to Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Orlando, Palm Beach and Tampa. Flights to Sarasota will operate three times per week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays and the route will be operated with a single-class 147 passenger Boeing 737-700NG. Celebrating the launch of the new route, Avelo is offering introductory one-way fares from $49. To qualify for the low promotional fares, tickets must be booked by November 4, 2021 (there are additional fees for carry-on and checked bags, assigned seats and other ancillary services).


In Thursday’s announcement, Avelo Airlines’ Chairman and CEO, Andrew Levy, said,


“We are excited to offer this new, convenient and affordable direct service between Southern Connecticut and Sarasota-Bradenton. With our very low fares and HVN’s unmatched convenience, traveling between Connecticut and The Sunshine State is easier than ever.”


Also commenting on the new service between New Haven and Sarasota, Sarasota Bradenton International Airport’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Rick Piccolo, said,


“We are thrilled that Avelo Airlines has chosen Sarasota Bradenton International Airport to be part of their air service network. With low fares and convenient nonstop service, passengers will have an affordable connection between two high-demand destinations. We look forward to welcoming Avelo Airlines to SRQ and we’re confident their service will be a great success and expand in the future.”

Launched on April 28, 2021, Avelo Airlines was founded with the simple purpose of inspiring travel. The carrier operates a fleet of single-class Next Generation Boeing 737s and offers customers a refreshingly smooth experience, convenience, and low everyday fares. Avelo currently offers direct service between 11 destinations in the Western U.S. and their initial base at Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR). The airline’s first East Coast base at Tweed-New Haven Airport (HVN) in Connecticut will commence operations in Fall 2021.
