“On behalf of Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot and the entire Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA), I am thrilled to welcome Avelo Airlines for inaugural service at Midway International Airport,” said City of Chicago Commissioner of Aviation Jamie L. Rhee. “Travelers now have new options for affordable travel between New England at Tweed New Haven Airport and the “Windy City,” voted Best Big City in the U.S. by Conde Nast Traveler for the fifth year in a row.”
Tweed-New Haven Airport – The New Haven Way to Connecticut
Amidst the crowds, long lines, lengthy walks and traffic congestion encountered at other airports frequented by travelers to and from the region, HVN offers a refreshingly smooth and simple alternative hometown airport experience. HVN’s adjacency to multiple major highways and commuter railways make it Connecticut’s most convenient and easily accessible airport.
Tweed-New Haven Airport Executive Director Sean Scanlon said, “The addition of flights to Chicago is yet another important milestone in the overwhelming success story that is our partnership with Avelo. Starting this week, we now serve thirteen destinations and are offering service to major business hubs for the first time since the 1990s. The future is bright here at HVN and if you haven’t flown with us yet, come see what all the hype is about!”
Best known as the home of Yale University, New Haven is the second largest city in Connecticut and is part of the New York metropolitan area. The coastal city has experienced—and continues to enjoy—a renaissance. Within an easy stroll from the New Haven Green are more than 100 distinctive restaurants, offering something for every palate, and the city abounds with theaters, museums, and shopping destinations to satisfy all interests and tastes.
