Avelo growth at Tweed New Haven airport spurs off-site parking plan

Tweed New Haven Regional Airport is “in the last stages” of negotiating a short-term, off-site solution to parking capacity issues expected to arise when Avelo Airlines goes from eight to 12 flights a day and adds flights to Chicago, Baltimore-Washington and Raleigh-Durham, N.C. later this month, an official said. Additional parking will be part of the plan when Tweed eventually applies to build a new 74,00-square-foot terminal and entrance off Proto Drive on the East Haven side of the airport as part of a $70 million expansion plan. That would be part of a $100 million total investment that would be paid for by Tweed’s contract operator, Goldman Sachs-owned Avports LLC, which in turn would be signed to a 43-year management contract. Avelo announced March 8 that it will add service to Chicago’s Midway International Airport, Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport and Raleigh-Durham Interational Airport on May 26, bringing the total number of destinations from Tweed to 13.
