BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Avelo Airlines announced today it is expanding service at Melbourne Orlando International Airport with exclusive nonstop flights to Delaware’s Wilmington Airport – a convenient and easy alternative to Philadelphia International Airport.
Avelo will be the only airline flying between The Space Coast and The First State.
Wilmington Airport has conveniently located a short drive south of Philadelphia – offering a refreshingly smooth and simple hometown airport experience.
ILG’s adjacency to multiple major highways makes it the Delaware Valley’s most convenient and travel-friendly airport, encompassing portions of four states: Delaware, Southeastern Pennsylvania, South Jersey, and the northern Eastern Shore of Maryland.
Avelo’s nonstop service from MLB to Wilmington will begin on June 28 and operate twice weekly on Wednesdays and Saturdays utilizing 189-seat Boeing Next-Generation 737-800 aircraft.
Introductory one-way fares between MLB and ILG start at $49*. Customers can make reservations at AveloAir.com.
Avelo Airlines Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said, “Space Coast – we’re already growing! This new route to the Wilmington / Philadelphia area exemplifies our ongoing commitment to bringing Avelo’s low fares, industry-leading reliability, and caring service to Melbourne travelers. Getting to the four-state Delaware Valley region is now easier than ever.”
MLB Executive Director Greg Donovan, A.A.E. said, “It is fantastic that Avelo is adding a third route connecting MLB to Wilmington, Delaware that opens a new market and provides the convenience of being strategically located between Philadelphia and Baltimore. We look forward to getting this innovative route started.
It’s a great option for tourists from New England looking for a Florida getaway or for Central Florida residents wanting to reconnect with friends and family.
We are so proud to partner with Avelo – the airline really offers dependable service and incredible value. Combined with MLB’s brand-new terminal, highly ranked customer service, and uncongested check-in, flying Avelo is a stress-free experience that’s actually fun.”
Avelo will now serve three nonstop destinations from MLB:
■ Raleigh/Durham, NC via Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU)
■ Southern Connecticut via Tweed-New Haven Airport (HVN)
■ Wilmington, DE / Philadelphia, PA via Wilmington Airport (ILG)
Avelo was founded with a vision to help its Customers save money and time. Since taking flight on April 28, 2021, Avelo has flown more than two million Customers on over 17,000 flights.

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 legroom, 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.
Avelo serves 43 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.
