Avelo Airlines Begins Nonstop Service to North Carolina’s Research Triangle from Manchester

Very low, one-way fares start at $59


MANCHESTER, N.H.; June 21, 2023 — Avelo Airlines today begins exclusive nonstop service between Manchester and North Carolina’s Research Triangle. With this new route to Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU), Avelo ushers in a new era of affordable, convenient and reliable air travel for New Hampshire and the surrounding New England region.

Following today’s special inaugural flight, Avelo will operate twice-weekly on Thursdays and Sundays utilizing Boeing Next-Generation 737 aircraft. Avelo is the only airline offering nonstop service between Manchester and Raleigh-Durham. Very low, one-way fares between Manchester-Boston Regional Airport (MHT) and RDU start at $59*. Customers can make reservations at AveloAir.com.

Avelo Airlines Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said, “Manchester – it’s officially time to say hello to Avelo! Getting to The Research Triangle is now more affordable and easier than ever. Avelo’s combination of everyday low fares, industry-leading reliability and friendly service, coupled with MHT’s time-saving convenience, will inspire people from across the region to enjoy everything the majestic and vibrant Piedmont region has to offer.”

MHT Airport Director Ted Kitchens said, “Hello, Avelo! Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is excited to celebrate the launch of Avelo Airlines today. Avelo’s low fares will allow residents of New Hampshire to explore all that Raleigh and the Research Triangle have to offer, and we are excited to welcome passengers from North Carolina to the great state of New Hampshire, where they can enjoy year-round outdoor activities just minutes from our front curb. We thank Avelo Airlines for their investment in New Hampshire and look forward to a long and successful partnership!”

Strategically situated in the heart of New England, MHT offers a refreshingly fast, smooth and welcoming airport experience. Manchester’s adjacency to multiple major highways and interstates, Boston, and the region’s most popular ski areas and scenic seacoast beaches makes it the most convenient and travel-friendly airport in the region.

Raleigh / Durham (RDU) – Nonstop Access to The Research Triangle

The Triangle Region offers the widest range of activities and attractions in North Carolina. This region boasts award-winning inns, hotels and spas, culinary delights for every taste, and cultural experiences including university gardens and art and history museums. A trip to this blossoming southern metropolis leaves visitors enriched and energized the instant they’re welcomed by its smart, savvy locals.

America’s Affordable, Convenient and Reliable Airline

Avelo was founded with a vision to help its Customers save money and time. Since taking flight on April 28, 2021, Avelo has flown almost 2.5 million Customers on nearly 20,000 flights.

Avelo serves 44 destinations spanning 24 states. The airline has unlocked a new era of convenience, choice and competition in air travel by flying unserved routes to primarily underserved communities across the country. At least one airport on every Avelo flight is a small hometown airport – making every Avelo journey easier and more enjoyable.

In addition to offering Customers everyday low fares on every route, Avelo Customers can always change or cancel their itineraries with no extra fees. Avelo also offers several unbundled travel-enhancing options that give Customers the flexibility to pay for what they value, including priority boarding, checked bags, carry-on overhead bags and bringing a pet in the cabin.

Additionally, the American-made Boeing 737 jets Avelo flies offer a more spacious and comfortable experience than the small regional aircraft currently operating at most of the airports Avelo serves. Customers who value an advance seat assignment can choose from several modestly priced seating options, including seats with extra leg room, as well as pre-reserved window and aisle seating. One third of seats on Avelo aircraft are available for Customers who appreciate the comfort of extra legroom.

At Avelo, every flight is also nonstop. This connection-free travel experience not only provides Avelo Customers with faster and simpler travel, but also minimizes delays, cancellations and lost bags. In fact, Avelo has established itself as one of America’s most reliable airlines. In the first five months of 2023, Avelo has achieved the lowest flight cancellation rate and the second best on-time performance in the U.S. airline industry.

Avelo is distinguished by its Soul of Service culture. The culture is grounded in Avelo’s One Crew Value which promotes a welcoming and caring experience. By caring for one another and owning their commitments, Avelo Crewmembers focus on anticipating and understanding Customer needs on the ground and in the air.
