Avelo Airlines is a low-cost carrier that launched in 2021. The airline operates a fleet of modern Boeing 737 aircraft and serves destinations across the United States. Avelo competes with Spirit Airways, Breeze Airways, Allegiant Air, Frontier Airlines, and Sun Country Airlines. The carrier just added new service on a very competitive route between Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) and Las Vegas Harry Reid International Airport (LAS).

Service from Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) to/from Las Vegas Harry Reid International Airport (LAS) is already served by Southwest, Spirit Airlines, and JSX. Flights will operate 2x weekly starting on May 2nd. This schedule is rather meager compared to the up to 7x daily JSX flights, up to 6x daily on Southwest, and up to 3x daily on Spirit.

Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) is a hub for Avelo Airlines with service to the following destinations:

  • Boise Airport (BOI) (2x weekly)
  • Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport (BZN) (2x weekly)
  • Brownsville/South Padre Island International Airport (BRO) (2x weekly)
  • California Redwood Coast – Humboldt County Airport (ACV) (4x weekly)
  • Colorado Springs Airport (COS) (2x weekly)
  • Eugene Airport (EUG) (2x weekly)
  • Glacier Park International Airport (FCA) (2x weekly)
  • Las Vegas Harry Reid International Airport (LAS) (2x weekly)
  • Rogue Valley International–Medford Airport (MFR) (2x weekly)
  • Tri-Cities Airport (PSC) (3x weekly)
  • Redding Regional Airport (RDD) (2x weekly)
  • Redmond Municipal Airport (RDM) (4x weekly)
  • Salem Municipal Airport (SLE) (2x weekly)
  • Charles M. Schulz–Sonoma County Airport (STS) (6x weekly)

Avelo Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy, said:

As Avelo approaches the third anniversary of our first flight from BUR, we’re excited to make Vegas our 14th popular destination from L.A.’s most popular airport. We look forward to offering travelers Avelo’s everyday affordability, convenience, and reliability between these two vibrant cities.”

Anthony’s Take: We’ll have to see how Avelo does here with a schedule that is far more limited than its competitors.
