Starting 5th May 2022, Avelo will operate 6-flights-a-week between New Haven and Myrtle Beach on all days except Wednesday. Myrtle Beach – known as the Grand Strand – stretches along 60 miles of pristine coastline from Little River to Georgetown. Every visitor to the area can find a spot for their ideal vacation. With its live entertainment, thrilling attractions, shopping, hundreds of championship golf and mini golf courses, historical sites, outdoor adventures, multiple fishing spots, delicious cuisine, and gorgeous scenery, Myrtle Beach is the perfect coastal escape.

Scott Van Moppes, Director of Airport, Myrtle Beach International Airport, said:

The addition of Avelo at MYR is exciting news for the Grand Strand.

It offers a relaxing, laid-back and welcoming vibe that make it a perfect vacation destination. It’s the Lowcountry way of life – and it’s what makes Hilton Head the perfect year-round retreat.

Gregory B. Kelly, Executive Director, Savannah Airport Commission, said:

We appreciate Avelo making the decision to include us in their current expansion plans. This will be the first time we have had direct service to the state of Connecticut. We believe this will prove to be a successful route and will work hard to promote that locally and in the New Haven area. We look forward to being an important part of Avelo’s growing system.


The airline will launch 4-weekly flights between New Haven and Nashville on 6th May 2022. The flights will run on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Live music can be seen and heard every day and night of the week in Nashville. The world-famous honky-tonks located on Broadway, offer free live music 365 days a year. Creativity is the heart and soul of Music City and there’s never a shortage of inspiring things to do. Step back into time to learn about Nashville’s history or explore a Nashville museum to discover artifacts, memorabilia, and more. From music, culture and the arts to food, sports and shopping, there is an “only in Nashville” experience for everyone.

Doug Kreulen, President and CEO, Nashville International Airport, said:

Avelo, welcome to Music City! The new nonstop flight between Nashville and New Haven builds a bridge to connect businesses and culture. Whether you are looking for lobster rolls, a pizza, hot chicken or BBQ, you’re just a short flight away thanks to this new service.

These flights will be operated by 147-seater Boeing B737-700 aircraft.

Ned Lamont, Governor, Connecticut, said:

Tweed-New Haven Airport continues to be a growing destination, and the addition of these flights is welcomed news as more travelers recognize how convenient, quick, and easy it is to fly out of this airport.

Yes indeed!

It’s great to see a small airline like Avelo expand so rapidly. It’s also great for passengers flying from New Haven and the airport itself as passengers will now have more destinations to fly to in less time. 🙂
