Avelo Airlines adds destination from ILM to Fort Lauderdale

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Avelo Airlines is expanding its service from Wilmington with the addition of a fourth destination, this time to Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Avelo will begin service to Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport (FLL) from ILM on November 11. Introductory fares between ILM and FLL start at $39.

“We are excited to expand our service from Wilmington with this fourth exciting and popular sun-soaked destination, “Avelo Airlines Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said. “With the addition of this exclusive nonstop flight to Fort Lauderdale, getting to the Sunshine State is now even easier and more affordable for Wilmington residents.”

In addition to FLL, Avelo serves New Haven, CT (HVN), Orlando, FL (MCO), and Washington, D.C. / Baltimore, MD (BWI). The new routes will operate on Boeing Next-Generation 737 aircraft.

Flights between FLL and ILM will operate two days a week, on Mondays and Fridays.

Since Avelo started flying out of ILM nearly a month ago, Avelo said most of their flights have been full.
