LOS ANGELES, Feb. 23, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Avelo Airlines announced today it will introduce exclusive nonstop service to Colorado Springs, CO and Brownsville / South Padre Island, TX from LA’s most popular airport, Hollywood-Burbank Airport (BUR). Avelo is the only airline in Los Angeles offering nonstop service to both destinations.
Avelo will begin serving Colorado Springs Airport (COS) on May 3 and operate three-times weekly on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Avelo will begin serving Brownsville South Padre Island International Airport (BRO) on May 17 and operate twice weekly on Wednesdays and Saturdays. These new routes will operate on Boeing Next-Generation 737 aircraft.
Introductory one-way fares between BUR and COS start at $49* and fares between BUR and BRO start at $89*. Customers can make reservations at AveloAir.com.
With the addition of these two new routes, Avelo will expand its affordable, convenient and reliable service to 10 popular destinations. BRO and COS join Boise, Idaho (BOI); Pasco Tri-Cities, Washington (PSC); three Oregon cities: Bend/Redmond (RDM), Eugene (EUG) and Medford/Rogue Valley (MFR); and three other California cities: Sonoma/Santa Rosa (STS), Eureka/Arcata (ACV) and Redding (RDD).
Avelo Airlines Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said, “Burbank – Avelo is growing again on the West Coast! Getting from Los Angeles to Colorado Springs and South Texas is now easier and more affordable than ever. Avelo took flight at BUR in 2021 and we are excited to provide our Southern California Customers with even more options from LA’s most popular and easiest airport. With ten destinations to now choose from, Avelo offers somewhere for everyone – whether you’re looking for a long weekend getaway, planning your next family vacation, or wanting to reconnect with old friends. And with LA’s only nonstop service to Brownsville, TX, we are making it easy for SpaceX employees and family members to travel to the SpaceX’s new Boca Chica spaceport.”
BUR — LA’s Best Airport
Whether travelers are departing or arriving, BUR offers a refreshingly convenient and hassle-free experience. Named the 2019 “Best U.S. Airport” by Fodor’s Travel, BUR features include seamless curbside pickup and drop-off, smaller crowds, unrivaled speed for plane-to-carousel bag delivery, faster TSA security lines, and short walking distances between the terminal and ground transportation, parking, and rental cars (instead of the time-consuming shuttle buses required at LA’s other much larger airport). All of this makes BUR LA’s ultra-convenient, stress-free gateway.
Hollywood Burbank Airport Executive Director Frank Miller said, “I am very pleased with the announcement of service from Burbank to Colorado Springs and Brownsville, Texas. Avelo continues to provide our region with affordable, convenient nonstop air service to new markets.”
