Avelo Is Launching Connecticut-Puerto Rico Flights 

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - August 1, 2023

Low-cost carrier Avelo is launching its first Caribbean destination: the island of Puerto Rico. The carrier has announced plans for nonstop service between Tweed-New Haven Airport and San Juan’s Luis Munoz Marin International Airport. 

Avelo is operating the route twice weekly, with service on Wednesdays and Saturdays, with the route set to kick off on Nov. 15. 

Avelo will be using Boeing Next Generation 737 aircraft, helping to connect the home of the world’s best pizza with the island of enchantment.

It’s the second nonstop route between Connecticut and the Caribbean, joining Spirit’s flights between Hartford Bradley and Montego Bay, Jamaica. 

“I am excited by the continued growth of Avelo Airlines at Tweed Airport, particularly with this new route to San Juan. With a location that is easily accessible for many people in southern Connecticut, Tweed offers quick and convenient travel. The addition of routes like this strengthens the region as a whole, improving our economic competitiveness and quality of life,” said Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont. 

Avelo has a fleet of 15 Boeing 737s, with five bases across the United States. 

“We expect the affordability and convenience of this new route will inspire a meaningful number of travelers to visit Connecticut from Puerto Rico. This is a win-win opportunity for Connecticut and Puerto Rico,” said Andrew Levy, CEO of Avelo.
