Last week the nation’s newest passenger airline, Avelo Airlines, inaugurated service to nearly a dozen unserved western cities from Hollywood Burbank Airport (KBUR).
An Avelo news release said the first flight headed to the Charles M. Schulz–Sonoma County Airport (KSTS), in Santa Rosa, California, and some 200 miles northwest. Sporting “everyday low fares starting at $19, Avelo’s daily non-stop service between [KBUR] and [KSTS] makes traveling to two of California’s most popular destinations easier and more affordable than ever. The route will be served by 189-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft—one of the most fuel-efficient commercial aircraft in the world—providing customers with a large, comfortable cabin with more room, more seats and more seating options than the regional aircraft typically serving [KSTS].”
Additional Avelo destinations will soon include Phoenix’s Mesa Airport; Grand Junction, Colorado; Ogden-Salt Lake, Utah; Bozeman-Yellowstone, Montana; Pasco Tri-Cities, Washington; Redmond-Bend, Oregon; Eugene, Oregon; Medford-Rogue Valley, Oregon; and Arcata-Eureka and Redding, California.
For both departing and arriving customers, “[Burbank] offers a refreshingly hassle-free experience, including seamless curbside pickup and drop-off, smaller crowds, shorter walking distances from curb to gate, unrivaled speed for plane-to-carousel bag delivery, and shorter TSA security lines. No airport is closer to downtown LA, Hollywood, Pasadena and other attractions throughout Southern California, making [Burbank] the ultra-convenient, stress-free gateway to Greater LA.”
