Avelo Airlines launches nonstop service between Memphis and Raleigh-Durham

MEMPHIS, TENN. (June 14, 2023) – Avelo Airlines has launched its new nonstop service between Memphis International Airport (MEM) and Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU).

Headquartered in Houston, Avelo Airlines is the tenth airline serving MEM. The airline is operating a 189-seat Boeing Next-Generation 737 aircraft for the flight. Following this morning’s inaugural flight, the service will run on Monday and Friday. Tickets are on sale at www.aveloair.com.

RDU previously ranked third on MEM’s list of top 10 unserved destinations. Today’s launch begins the first MEM-RDU service since February 2015.

Avelo Airlines Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said, “Memphis – it’s officially time to say hello to Avelo! We are excited to take off in Memphis and bring Avelo to the Home of Blues, Soul and Rock ‘n’ Roll. Getting to The Research Triangle is now more affordable and easier than ever. Avelo’s combination of everyday low fares, industry-leading reliability, and friendly service, coupled with MEM’s time-saving convenience, will inspire people from across the region to visit to explore everything the Raleigh-Durham area has to offer. We are equally excited about helping make Memphis an even more attractive destination for those considering a trip from North Carolina’s Triangle region.”

“The launch of Avelo Airlines’ new Raleigh-Durham service at MEM provides our passengers with a new low-cost travel option and restores service to one of our top unserved destinations,” said Michael Keeney, Chairman of the Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority Board of Commissioners. “We are excited to welcome Avelo to the Memphis market and expect that our passengers will embrace this opportunity to connect to RDU.”
