Avelo Airlines is expanding service at Charleston International Airport (CHS) by offering exclusive nonstop flights to Delaware’s Wilmington Airport (ILG). The destination is a convenient alternative to the busier Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) resulting in a smooth and simple airport experience. Access to multiple major highways makes ILG 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. Service begins June 23 with twice-weekly flights Mondays and Fridays on Boeing's 189-seat Next-Generation 737-800 aircraft. Introductory one-way fares start at $39* and customers can make reservations atAveloAir.com.
Avelo Airlines Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said, “Charleston – say hello to Avelo, again!
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 Charleston travelers. Getting to the four-state Delaware Valley region is now easier than ever.”

Executive Director and CEO at Charleston International Airport Elliott Summey had this to say," Avelo’s decision to schedule service to Wilmington not only illustrates the Lowcountry of Charleston’s appeal to residents of the Delaware Valley but also provides our travelers more options when planning their trips. We look forward to Avelo continuing to increase their nonstop destinations in the Charleston region.”
Helen Hill, CEO of Explore Charleston and Chair of the Aviation Authority Helen Hill noted how the expanded route map includes not only a new city but a new state, adding, "we appreciate Avelo's addition of a second destination from CHS. This increases service between the Lowcountry and the broader Delaware Valley, which, beyond Delaware, encompasses portions of southeastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey and the northern Eastern Shore of Maryland. We look forward to welcoming visitors from this four-state region and increasing ways for Charleston area and Delaware Valley residents to more affordably and easily connect with friends, family and vacation opportunities."
Avelo will now serve two nonstop destinations from CHS. Wilmington will join Connecticut’s most convenient airport — Tweed-New Haven Airport (HVN).
