Avelo Airlines Announced two more travel routes from Wilmington

Less than a week after returning from a glorious family vacation in North Eleuthera, Bahamas which I will share more about it the coming weeks, I had an opportunity to attend the Avelo Airlines Announcement at the Wilmington airport.



On Thursday, August 10th, Avelo Airlines announced a historic expansion at Wilmington Airport (ILG) with the addition of two new nonstop tropical destinations: San Juan, Puerto Rico and Sarasota-Bradenton, Fla. Avelo is the first airline to offer nonstop flights beyond the continental United States at ILG — the convenient, affordable and travel-friendly alternative to Philadelphia International Airport (PHL).

When these two new destinations take flight in November, Avelo will serve 15 nonstop destinations from its Philadelphia / Delaware Valley base. Since taking flight in February, Avelo has flown more than 125,000 Customers at ILG – the fastest single-year growth rate in airport history. 


Special introductory one-way fares between ILG and San Juan’s Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU) start at $99*. Introductory one-way fares between ILG and Sarasota Bradenton International Airport (SRQ) start at $49*. Customers can make reservations at AveloAir.com.



The event was hosted by Delaware River and Bay Authority (DRBA) and Avelo Airlines leaders accompanied by local and state political and community officials, including: Delaware Governor John Carney, Avelo Airlines Head of People and Customer Experience Vicky Stennes, DRBA Executive Director Thomas Cook, DRBA Deputy Executive Director Steven Williams, Delaware General Assembly Speaker Valerie Longhurst , Chairman of the Delaware Hispanic Commission Carlos de La Ramos, Nuestras Raíces Vice President India Colon-Diaz and many others in the media as well as excited residents all huddled under a tent on this thankful Thursday morning.



To make the event even more exciting, there were various Puerto Rican delicacies, which unfortunately, I didn’t have an opportunity to taste, a live band with dancing and non-alcoholic beverages being served from the Tiki Bar.



For our family vacation, we had to fly from Philadelphia International Airport, with a stop over in Charlotte, but if you are traveling to any of these destinations, you can now book a non-stop flight on Avelo Airlines for a stress-free experience from Wilmington.
