Avelo Airlines has signed a contract with Lufthansa Technik to supply material for its increasing fleet of Boeing 737NG planes. The airline now has an eight-plane 737NG fleet, consisting of five Boeing B737-700s and three Boeing B737-800s.
On Friday, Lufthansa Technik announced a new partnership with Avelo Airlines in a statement.
This is the first time the two firms have collaborated. Lufthansa Technik will supply Avelo with consumables and expendables in the coming years as the new low-cost carrier expands.
According to Cirium, Avelo Airlines commenced service in April 2021 and presently operates 150 weekly flights across the United States, mostly from Tweed-New Haven Airport (HVN) and Burbank Airport (BUR).
Meanwhile, Lufthansa Technik operates an extensive network of supply and MRO facilities and guarantees Avelo “industry leading performance,” with this agreement.
Gary Martin, Avelo’s Head of Technical Operations, said,
“Avelo Airlines is pursuing an ambitious growth plan, something that would be impossible without the strong support of our partners. We rely on Lufthansa Technik, whose renowned reliability will help us achieve the operational performance our customers expect from Avelo."
In 2022, Avelo hopes to receive nine further Boeing 737 NG aircraft. By the end of the year, the low-cost carrier plans to extend its fleet to 15 jetliners. Each plane can carry 147 passengers.
Avelo Airlines is gearing up for the busiest travel season of the year in the United States. Avelo, for example, is increasing service to Florida by 13 weekly flights from HVN.
