While all Avelo fares include one personal carry-on item (i.e., purse, briefcase, laptop less than 14 inches by 9 inches by 9 1/2 inches) that must fit underneath your seat, additional bags are extra. Starting Sept. 16, Avelo will charge you $25 for larger carry-on bags and $20 for your first checked bag. Additionally, seat choice starts at $6, along with a “distribution charge” of up to $22 that applies to fares quoted on Avelo’s website or through the customer support center, but does not apply to reservations made at an Avelo airport ticket counter.

The airline is taking COVID-19 precautions as you would see on larger carriers, including pre-packed and pre-sealed food and beverages, the use of HEPA filters that remove 99.9% of airborne particles, the use of face masks among crew and passengers and regularly cleaning and disinfecting airplanes.
