Avelo’s nonstop service between SAV and Wilmington Airport is the most affordable and convenient way to Philly and the Delaware Valley region

SAVANNAH, Ga.; June 6, 2023 — Avelo Airlines announced today it is kicking off the busy summer travel season with a $19* one-way fare between Savannah and The City of Brotherly Love. The irresistibly low fare is available on Avelo’s new nonstop service between Savannah / Hilton Head International Airport (SAV) and Wilmington Airport (ILG) – a convenient and travel-friendly alternative to Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) for travelers heading to Philly and the greater Delaware Valley Region.

The three-day sale is available for travel between June 22 and July 31, 2023, and must be booked by June 8, 2023. Customers can make reservations at

Wilmington Airport is conveniently located a short drive south of Philadelphia – offering a refreshingly smooth, simple and relaxing hometown airport experience compared to PHL. ILG’s adjacency to multiple major highways makes it the greater PHL and Delaware Valley’s most convenient airport, encompassing portions of four states: Southeastern Pennsylvania, Delaware, South Jersey and the northern Eastern Shore of Maryland.

Avelo Airlines Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said, “Getting to Philadelphia and the greater Delaware Valley is easier and more affordable than ever with Avelo’s exclusive nonstop service to Wilmington Airport – the region’s most travel-friendly airport. There simply isn’t a more convenient, faster and more relaxing gateway to everything that Philly and the surrounding area have to offer than Avelo’s new nonstop service to one of America’s most popular summer vacation regions. When you combine all this with Avelo’s industry-leading reliability, a summer trip to The City of Brotherly Love is irresistible.”

Avelo’s nonstop service from SAV to Philadelphia / Wilmington, DE begins on June 28 and will operate twice-weekly on Wednesdays and Saturdays utilizing Boeing Next-Generation 737 aircraft. When Avelo takes flight for Philadelphia, ILG will join Southern Connecticut’s most convenient airport — Tweed-New Haven Airport (HVN) – as SAV’s second destination.
