Avelo adds flights to Sarasota from Tweed New Haven Airport


Avelo Airlines launched the last of its announced routes to Florida from New Haven on Thursday with an inaugural flight to Sarasota. 

The Gulf Coast city is Avelo’s sixth Florida destination from Tweed New Haven Airport (HVN), with six flights a week scheduled to Sarasota Bradenton International Airport (SRQ) and back. The flights depart on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays through the winter season. 

Introductory fares to Sarasota start at $49 one-way and are for sale at

Avelo Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said, “We hope our Connecticut customers will be inspired to visit our sixth Florida destination. We’re excited to take flight today for the beautiful beaches, colorful art and enriching cultural districts of this majestic Gulf Coast destination.”

Sarasota Bradenton International Airport President and CEO Rick Piccolo said, “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.” 

Avelo announced on Jan. 7 that it had raised $42 million in Series B funding, with Morgan Stanley taking an even larger stake in the startup airline. 

Chief of Communications Jim Olson said Avelo plans to double the amount of destinations it serves nationwide in the coming year, with more routes to be added from New Haven.
