Avelo Airlines: America’s Most Convenient Airline

Since its launch in April 2021, Avelo has established itself as a leader in convenience and affordability. The airline focuses on underserved routes, connecting communities across the country with primarily small, easy-to-navigate airports. This philosophy translates to a smoother and more enjoyable travel experience, free from the congestion and long walks often encountered at larger airports.

Avelo offers added value to its passengers with flexible booking options. Customers can change or cancel their flights without incurring additional fees. Families with young children will appreciate Avelo’s policy of automatically seating children 13 and under with accompanying adults at no extra charge.

When it comes to seating, Avelo provides a variety of options to suit your needs. Customers can choose from standard seating or splurge on extra legroom seats, ranging from 32 to over 36 inches, for a more comfortable travel experience. Avelo also offers a selection of unbundled travel-enhancing options, allowing you to pay only for the services you value, such as priority boarding, checked bags, carry-on luggage, and in-cabin pets.
