Avelo Airlines to Launch Nine New Routes from
Wilmington Airport, Delaware
Building on the strong demand that Avelo
Airlines has generated within its first three months of service at
Delaware’s Wilmington Airport (ILG), the airline has unveiled
plans to launch nine nonstop flights from ILG later this year.
The addition of a second Boeing 737 at its
Wilmington base will enable Avelo to nearly triple its network
from five to fourteen routes – the largest number of destinations
ever offered at ILG.
“The strong demand we are generating out of the gate is a
testament to the convenient, affordable, reliable and caring air
service Avelo has introduced to the Delaware Valley,” said Andrew
Levy, Avelo Airlines Chairman and CEO. “We’re just getting started and
our partnership with the DRBA, as well as leaders, organizations
and communities from across the region, keeps getting stronger at
every turn. I’m especially thankful for our dedicated and caring
ILG-based crew members who have brought Avelo’s presence here to
life and look forward to welcoming even more folks to our team in
the weeks and months ahead.”
The nine new nonstop destinations span five
states as follows:
Greenville / Spartanburg, South Carolina (GSP):
Effective 22 June 2023 – Thursdays and Sundays.
Nashville, Tennessee (BNA): Effective 22 June
2023 – Thursdays and Sundays.

The nine new routes join the five existing Florida

Thomas J. Cook, Executive Director of the Delaware River and Bay
Authority, said, “With Avelo’s fourteen cities now on the schedule, Wilmington
Airport offers the most nonstop flight destinations in its history
and the second based aircraft will bring additional quality jobs
for area citizens. Our focus is to be the airport of choice for
people in Delaware, South Jersey, Pennsylvania and Maryland who

To support the additional aircraft and flights,
Avelo expects to hire at least 35 new employees,
including pilots, flight attendants, airport customer service
crew members, aircraft maintenance technicians and supervisors.
