Dubuque Regional Airport offers a refreshingly fast, smooth and welcoming hometown airport experience. Dubuque’s adjacency to multiple major highways makes it the most convenient and travel-friendly airport in the area, supporting three surrounding states.


Dubuque Regional Airport Chair Mike Phillips said, “We are so excited to welcome Avelo Airlines to Dubuque and the tri-state area, and we are thankful to be a part of their network.  Dubuque Regional Airport was chosen as Avelo’s first destination in the state of Iowa. Avelo’s new nonstop service to Orlando is something tri states have wanted for many years. Orlando is our most popular leisure destination and with winter right around the corner, travelers will appreciate the ease and convenience of flying direct from DBQ.”  


President and CEO Dubuque Area Chamber of Commerce Molly Grover said, “We are thrilled to welcome Avelo to the Dubuque Regional Airport and be able to offer a highly desired ultra-low-cost option for leisure air travel for people that live, work, play and do business in our tri-state area.  This is an exciting opportunity for us to capture market share that has been previously unattainable.”

America’s Affordable and Convenient Airline

Avelo was founded with a vision to help its Customers save money and time. Since taking flight on April 28, 2021, Avelo has flown more than 1.3 million Customers on more than 10,000 flights.


In addition to offering Customers everyday low fares on every route, Avelo Customers can always change or cancel their itineraries with no extra fees. Avelo also offers several unbundled travel-enhancing options that give Customers the flexibility to pay for what they value, including priority boarding, checked bags, carry-on overhead bags, and bringing a pet in the cabin.


Additionally, the American-made Boeing 737 jets Avelo flies offer a more spacious and comfortable experience than the small regional aircraft currently operating at most of the airports Avelo serves. Customers who value an advance seat assignment can choose from several modestly priced seating options, including seats with extra leg room, as well as pre-reserved window and aisle seating. One third of seats on Avelo aircraft are available for Customers who appreciate the comfort of extra legroom. 


Avelo now serves 34 destinations across the U.S. The airline has unlocked a new era of convenience, choice and competition in air travel by flying unserved routes to primarily underserved communities across the country. At least one airport on every Avelo flight is a small hometown airport – making every Avelo journey easier and more enjoyable.
