Just over one year ago, Avelo Airlines ushered in a new era of choice, convenience and low fares as America’s first new airline in nearly 15 years took flight from LA’s Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR).
Over the past year, Avelo has expanded across the country — completing more than 5,300 flights carrying more than 630,000 Customers, and recently added nonstop service between Los Angeles and Boise.
Avelo Airlines Founder, Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said, “One year ago, we endeavored to bring more choice, convenience and everyday affordability to an industry beleaguered by two decades of competition-crushing consolidation. I’m very proud of the different and better kind of airline we are building, even as unprecedented challenges continued to confront the airline industry. We’ve come a long way and still have a long way to go — but we’re off to a great start.”
Since Avelo’s inaugural flight on April 28, 2021, from BUR to the North Bay Area’s Sonoma County Airport (STS), Avelo has operated more than 3,500 flights from its West Coast base at Los Angeles’ most popular airport.
Those flights have connected more than 400,000 customers to the people, places and experiences they value most.
LA’s Ultra-Convenient Travel Gateway
Avelo currently serves 10 popular nonstop destinations from BUR across California and the Western United States — that’s the second largest number of nonstop destinations offered by any airline operating at BUR. Over the past 12 months, Avelo achieved an on-time arrival rate of 82% for flights operated at BUR.
Hollywood Burbank Airport Executive Director Frank Miller said, “As we recognize Avelo’s recent one-year anniversary, we celebrate its success and the positive impact it has made on Hollywood Burbank Airport.”
Whether customers 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’s advantages 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 shuttles and trains necessary at other larger airports). All of this makes BUR LA’s most popular, ultra-convenient and stress-free gateway.
Levy added, “I’m very appreciative of the warm reception the LA community has greeted Avelo with since we took flight here last April. It is clear BUR is the region’s friendliest and most popular airport. We love hearing from our West Coast customers about how easy and affordable we are making air travel. The speed, simplicity and convenience that distinguishes BUR from other airports is a huge part of the positive travel experience our customers enjoy.”
From BUR, Avelo serves 10 popular destinations on 189-seat Boeing Next-Generation (NG) 737-800 aircraft:
• Bend / Redmond, OR — Redmond Municipal Airport (RDM)
• Boise, ID — Boise Airport (BOI)

A Different, Better and More Affordable Travel Experience
Avelo offers several unbundled travel-enhancing options that give customers the flexibility to pay for what they value, including priority boarding, checked bags, carry-on overhead bags, and bringing a pet in the cabin.
The large Boeing 737 jets Avelo operates offer a more spacious and comfortable experience than the smaller regional aircraft historically serving this route.
Customers may choose from several seating options, including seats with extra leg room, as well as pre-reserved window and aisle seating.
Avelo is distinguished by its “Soul of Service” culture. The culture is grounded in Avelo’s “One Crew” value that promotes a welcoming and caring experience. By caring for one another and owning their commitments, Avelo crew members focus on anticipating and understanding customer needs on the ground and in the air.
