Tampa Airport celebrates Avelo Airlines’ launch to New Haven
Tampa International Airport has celebrated Avelo Airlines’ inaugural service to New Haven, Connecticut with a beautiful cake, giveaways, a balloon arch, ribbon cutting and live music at the gate. The new route is operated three times weekly on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays, with 737-700 aircraft.
For Southern Connecticut residents, the new service now offers nonstop and convenient access to beaches, Tampa businesses and the heart of the west coast of Florida. For Tampa travellers, it offers another option to visit the Northeast tri-state area and another nonstop flight to the greater New York City region.
“It has been a real privilege to work with the entire Avelo team to get ready for today’s launch,” said Chris Minner, TPA Executive Vice President of Marketing and Communications, who touted the Tampa Bay area’s beautiful beaches and sunny locale as a draw for those coming from the Northeast. “To everyone who is a passenger on today’s flight, we want to thank you for choosing Avelo and Tampa International Airport.”
Andrew Levy, Chairman and CEO, Avelo Airlines, said: “We are looking forward to bringing more choice, affordability and the Avelo Soul of Service to Tampa. With nonstop flights to one of the area’s most hassle-free airports, travellers from Tampa will now have a smoother way to visit Southern Connecticut and experience all the region has to offer.”
