(Some Guy)   Startup carrier Avelo puts Delaware back on the aviation map. Honestly, it's unclear if Delaware is on any map let alone an aviation map   ( divider line

There is a big airline facility there that airlines use to repaint their planes and upgrade them at.

Take two big steps and you're out of state anyway.

I drove down 1 for the first time in at least a few months and saw an Avelo billboard somewhere north of Dover I think. I believe my exact words were "what the fark is Avelo?"

This was a quick answer to something I forgot to look up when I got to the beach house.

Big meh from me. Wilmington airport has always wanted something like what Frontier provides to Trenton - 5-10 flights per day to a bunch of destinations - and has been through half a dozen carriers in the last 20 years trying to get that. The problem is PHL is 20 minutes away from Wilmington city, there isn't much of a population in Southern Delaware / Eastern Shore, and for anyone South of Dover, it's generally similar timing to get to BWI.

American Airlines used to fly a ridiculous flight from Allentown to Philadelphia (a 60-90 minute drive.) Now they have a really nice bud you can buy a seat on as part of your ticket. Wilmington is way closer to PHL; an airport bud you could access with one ticket would sure be convenient.

I flew Avelo once. It's not as barebones as The Grace L Ferguson Airlines and Stormdoor Company.

I took a couple of Frontier flights from Wilmington (technically New Castle County Airport, ILG) to Florida when Frontier operated them. Not bad, can't argue with the convenience, no parking fees etc.
