Exploring the Oregon Coast in Eugene

Stretching from the central Oregon Coast to the towering Cascade Mountains, anchored by Eugene and Springfield in the South Willamette Valley, the region is a pinnacle of majestic contrasts. A spirited athletic culture is thriving alongside the laid-back pace of river recreation, with artists, innovators and nature-seekers enjoying iconic and hidden places to sip a beer, explore history, bike the riverfront or hike to epic views. The Willamette Valley is home to many small towns, each rooted in its own distinct sense of place. Eugene Airport (EUG) is the perfecting jumping off point for exploring the best of Coastal Oregon.

Eugene Airport Director Cathryn Stephens, A.A.E. said, “The addition of seasonal service to Palm Springs International Airport by Avelo Airlines increases the nonstop travel options for the people in our region. We have a strong partnership with Avelo Airlines and are excited for their addition of this flight between EUG and PSP.”
