Getting to your dream vacation destination with non-stop service to Los Angeles, California or Orlando, Florida is just one click away now that Avelo Airlines has arrived in Brownsville.

Houston-based Avelo Airlines inaugural flight to Orlando took off Wednesday, May 17, 2023, from the Brownsville -South Padre International Airport at almost full capacity.

If you dreamed of seeing Universal Studios, Venice Beach sights, strolling down the Hollywood Walk of Fame, or visiting the Santa Monica Pier, you can fly directly to Los Angeles from Brownsville with non-stop service on Avelo Airlines.

Brownsville Mayor John Cowen Jr. said the City of Brownsville has been working very hard to get a new airline in Brownsville and that the city is very excited to have Avelo Airlines here.

“We have been working hard to get a new airline here for a long time and are very happy to have Avelo Airlines here. It opens the door for more connections from Brownsville and provides opportunities at an affordable price to make sure that our families can travel to both coasts,” Cowen said.

Those traveling to the East Coast, to Orlando, can visit the Kennedy Space Center while those enchanted with Mickey Mouse and his friends can visit Disneyworld by taking the direct non-stop flight from Brownsville to Orlando Brownsville via Avelo Airlines.

These routes to Los Angeles and Orlando operate twice weekly on Wednesdays and Saturdays

“We are a growing young airline and our motto is to inspire travel with low fares to small convenient airports, so we have looked all over the country for airports that are underserved that historically for whatever reasons they have had a lot of population growth but maybe not much growth in their air service and that formula is working really well across the country and it led us to Brownsville as a city that is growing very quickly, very vibrant economically and our bases in Los Angeles and Orlando look like a really nice fit,” said Travis Christ, Head of Marketing for Avelo.
