Avelo Airways is one in all two “legit” US airline startups proper now (with the opposite being Breeze Airways). Avelo is based by a former Allegiant Journey and United Airways govt, who plans to create an airline that can in some methods be just like Allegiant.
The airline shall be an extremely low price service that can provide point-to-point flights to secondary markets that aren’t at present properly served. The airline plans to make use of Boeing 737-800s with 189 seats, so these planes could be excessive density and in a one-class structure. You’ll be able to count on this to be one of many extra fundamental airways within the US.
We don’t know precisely when Avelo will launch flights, although seemingly out of nowhere the primary Boeing 737-800 within the Avelo livery has emerged, with @planespottingcvg having snapped an image of the aircraft at Indianapolis Airport.
Avelo’s first aircraft is a Boeing 737-800 with the license plate N803XT. The aircraft is roughly 15 years outdated, because it entered service in 2006, and it flew for Turkish Airways by way of Could 2020.
So far as the livery goes, I type of prefer it… I believe? I imply, it’s not essentially the most thrilling or distinctive livery ever, because it follows the identical normal format as most airways introducing new liveries these days. A few issues stand out, not less than from a advertising and marketing perspective:
- The colour alternative appears fairly logical for an extremely low price service that’s supposed to supply fundamental transportation — blue is related to reliability and is meant to advertise belief
- The all decrease case letters are speculated to make the corporate appear extra pleasant, approachable, and informal
As a degree of comparability, Breeze Airways has a livery that actually stands out and is completely different than we’ve in any other case seen at US airways, although to me the livery already appears type of dated.
I’m curious to see when Avelo launches operations — the airline is hiring each flight attendants and pilots with pretty conventional contracts (not like Breeze, which has had some questionable hiring techniques, particularly for flight attendants), so presumably the airline plans to launch operations sooner or later this yr.
What do you make of Avelo Airways’ livery?
