UNITED STATES- The Ultra-Low-Cost Carrier Avelo Airlines (XP) is exiting four markets and announcing the seasonal suspension of nine routes Due to unplanned development
The carrier had launched flights to Arcata and Dubuque in September, following its pattern of targeting markets with low or no air service.
Avelo Airlines to Cease Operations
Avelo Airlines, based in Southern California, reported to FlightGlobal on November 21 that demand fell short of expectations on four routes: Raleigh-Durham (North Carolina) to Sarasota (Florida), New Haven (Connecticut) to Melbourne (Florida), and Las Vegas to Arcata (California) and Dubuque (Iowa).
These routes will continue operations through early January but will not be reinstated.
The airline, known for targeting markets with low or no air service, had launched flights to Arcata and Dubuque in September. However, like other low-cost carriers in the USA, Avelo has observed a softening in domestic demand for leisure travel.
In response to soft demand in certain markets and scheduled maintenance of its Boeing 737NGs, Avelo is making adjustments to its network in the first quarter. Additionally, the airline is seasonally suspending nine routes in the first quarter of the following year.
Avelo did not provide a specific timeline for the resumption of seasonal flights in 2024
