Earlier today, Avelo Air announced 3 new routes from a ‘mini hub’ in Fort Myers, Florida.
These new routes are Fort Myers (RSW) to Lansing, MI (LAN), Fort Myers (RSW) to Kalamazoo, MI (AZO), and Fort Myers (RSW) to Raleigh/ Durham, NC (RDU), all starting on November 11th.
This is exciting as Avelo is increasing the routes to more parts of the US. I especially like the last one because it is my home airport at RDU.
The Future is looking bright for Avelo!
One of 2021’s new airlines goes under, another expands
Nice to see Avelo still expanding. I wonder if they’ll need to take on additional aircraft to cover these routes (im not sure how big their fleet is right now)
From what I know, they will be moving some of the 800s over from Burbank. I think it will be a mix between the 700 and the 800. I could be wrong thougn
As far as I know, they’ve got only 3 -800s over here on the west coast, so they don’t have much wiggle room if they take 1 or 2 from here
Edit: it appears they have five -800s in total, one of which doesn’t appear to have been delivered yet and the other doesn’t seem to have made any flights yet. They also got a fair number of -700s so I think they’re doing fine for available planes
Well, this is awkward, but this actually a duplicate.
Avelo Opens Mini Base In Fort Myers (RSW)
Avelo will open a base in Fort Myers, Florida. The will expand to 3 new destinations from the airport:
RSW to Raleigh/Durham
RSW to Kalamazoo
RSW to Lansing
The routes will operate on a Boeing 737-700. More information will be provided soon.
Oh…I see the OP has commented on
@CaptainZac’s thread too. Talk about super awkward.
I’m excited about this, as RDU is my home airport! It’s nice to see RDU & Avelo growing!
I didn’t realize when making it that one existed, but while it was getting reviewed i found it.
