The entry deadline is July 20, 2021 and winners will be selected at random by August 17, 2021. Travel must be completed by December 31, 2021.
Graduates can use their award tickets to travel to any of Avelo’s 12 beautiful and activity-packed destinations across the Western U.S. These include Los Angeles and its world-famous beaches, shopping and entertainment. Or graduates can rejuvenate at one of the many national and state parks Avelo flies to.
Avelo selected Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) as its first base. Named the 2019 “Best U.S. Airport” by Fodor’s Travel, no airport is closer to downtown LA, Hollywood, Pasadena and other popular Southern
California attractions — making BUR the ultra-convenient, stress-free gateway to Greater LA. Whether Customers are departing or arriving, BUR is LA’s airport of choice for seamless curbside pickup and drop-off, smaller crowds, shorter walking distances from curb to gate, swifter plane-to-carousel bag delivery, and quicker TSA security lines.
Avelo flies 189-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft, one of the most fuel-efficient commercial aircraft globally, providing Customers with a large, comfortable cabin with more room, more seats and more seating options than the regional aircraft typically serving the airports in Avelo’s network. Avelo aircraft feature 60 seats with up to 9 inches of extra legroom starting at $18.
