The airport has been in talks with Avelo for two years, since the start of Avelo, to bring in new options for customers not only in New Hampshire but for the New England area in General, as Avelo's second destination in New England.
The CEO of Avelo stated that "We wish to emulate New Haven, and if successful, we would like to expand to more destinations from Manchester", remarking on how New Haven, one of Avelo's first East Coast hub became a success for Avelo.

Raleigh, North Carolina will be the newest destination from New Hampshire, and the second destination in North Carolina to connect people from the Carolinas to New England. Raleigh is known for its tourism in the city and is part of the Research Triangle in the state of North Carolina.
Avelo Airlines is slated to start service to the Queen City on June 21, 2023, with flights on Sundays and Thursdays, where the airport and airline hope to potentially increase service or offer potential new markets if successful.
Avelo has already paid the airport a surprise visit on March 21, 2023, bringing in a sports team, and is the first time their aircraft have "officially" landed at the airport, which in itself has increased excitement as this was the opportunity for the airport to have a first time look at the new airline up close.
