The first new American airline in nearly 15 years – Avelo Airlines – premieres today at Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) with inspiring travel routes and low-cost packages. Introductory one-way fares start at $ 1
Avelo will offer daily low fares combined with hassle-free and convenient travel, non-stop non-stop flights between BUR and 11 destinations in the western United States. EDT, departing from April 28, 2021, with current availability until September 15, 2021.
“Avelo has a simple goal – to inspire travel,” said Avelo founder, chairman and CEO Andrew Levy. “People are ready to reconnect with family and friends and explore new places. Avelo is a different and better type of airline, created from scratch to offer an affordable, comfortable and caring travel experience. “
The Avelo team represents more than 200 years of collective aviation experience. Previously co-founder and president of Allegiant Air and CFO of United Airlines, Levy has more than two decades of experience managing airlines. In addition to Allegiant and United, Avelo’s management team includes former senior executives from Delta Air Lines, Frontier Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Northwest Airlines and Spirit Airlines.
“After more than 20 years of steadily declining consumer choice, the American flying community wants and deserves more options and lower fares,” Levy said. “Avelo offers both – along with a refreshingly smooth and comfortable experience.”
The best airport in Los Angeles
Avelo has chosen Hollywood Burbank Airport as its first base. The convenience of BUR to Greater Los Angeles, the customer-friendly compact size and lower costs were all important considerations. In fact, Travel of Fodor named BUR the “Best Airport in the United States” in 2019.
“Locals know that BUR is the best airport in Los Angeles,” Levy said. “No airport is closer to downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, Pasadena and many other BUR attractions. As the native airport of the San Fernando Valley, BUR will provide you with easy access to an abundance of beautiful and relaxing new 24-hour destinations in California and the Western United States. A convenient, stress-free portal to Greater Los Angeles and world-famous fun activities in the sun, Southern California is famous. “
Whether customers leave or arrive, BUR promises a refreshing hassle-free experience. BUR offers seamless pick-up and drop-off, smaller crowds, shorter walking distances from the curb to the gate, unsurpassed speed to deliver the aircraft to the carousel and shorter TSA safety lines. Customers will be at their doorstep in a flash, while saving on parking and ground transportation to and from the airport.
“Hollywood Burbank Airport illustrates the comfortable, caring and smooth experience that sets Avelo apart,” Levy said. “We are grateful for the enthusiastic partnership with which BUR CEO Frank Miller, the commissioners and the airport staff welcomed us. Not surprisingly, BUR is Los Angeles’ favorite airport. “
Avelo will initially serve a collection of beautiful and relaxing destinations that are not currently served by BUR. Avelo’s introductory routes focus on outdoor recreation, national parks and coastal and mountainous terrain – as well as providing air services for a growing population of remote workers:
- Arch / Eureka, California (ACV), a Victorian charm in the heart of California’s Redwood Coast
- Bend / Redmond, OR (RDM), where snowy cascades surround the high desert

- Phoenix / Mesa, Arizona (AZA), stress-free airport, an alternative to a year-round desert oasis

Pay less. Travel more
Initially, the airline will operate Boeing 737-800 aircraft with 189 seats with efficient fuels – offering a more comfortable experience than the regional aircraft often used by the airports that Avelo serves. Surprisingly low Avelo daily rates do not include change fees or call center fees for customers who decide to make reservations by phone.
Avelo also offers several separate options to improve low-cost travel in the industry, giving customers the flexibility to pay for what they value:
- First bag checked: $ 10
- Handbag: $ 35
- Priority upload: $ 10
- Pet in the cabin: $ 95
- Seating options: Customers can choose from several seating options. The 189-seat Avelo 737-800 will offer 129 standard slim 29-inch seats. Pre-booked window and walkway locations start at $ 5. Avelo aircraft will also have 60 seats with a height of 31 to 38 inches. These places start at $ 18.
Fly with confidence
Avelo takes all precautions to protect the health of customers at the airport and during their flight. Avelo aircraft are regularly cleaned and disinfected. Tables, galleys, toilets and all other contact surfaces are disinfected every night with Calla 1452 disinfectant (hospital class). In addition to daily disinfection and cleaning, Avelo regularly treats the entire aircraft with an advanced antimicrobial protector that kills viruses, germs and bacteria on all surfaces. This Zoono treatment forms a colorless, odorless protective shield and is safe for human contact.
In addition, the cabin air is refreshed every two to three minutes from the top-down Boeing 737 air filtration and ventilation system. The system directs the airflow from the ceiling to the bottom of the seat – not from front to back – and significantly reduces the movement of particles throughout the cabin. All Avelo aircraft operate with HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters, which remove 99.9% of airborne particles, including viruses such as coronavirus, in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations.
All customers will receive a convenient package containing hand sanitizer, as well as bottled water and a small breakfast.
Federal law requires everyone – including Avelo customers and crew members – to wear a face mask at the airport and on the plane (unless they are eating or drinking). Avelo also promotes best practices for social distancing when possible.
