BURBANK, Calif., and EUREKA, Calif., May 19, 2021 — America’s first new mainline airline in nearly 15 years — Avelo Airlines — commences service today between Los Angeles and Northern California’s Redwood Coast. With everyday low fares and attractive introductory one-way fares starting at $19, Avelo is ushering in a new era of choice, affordability and convenience between these two scenic California destinations.
Avelo will fly nonstop between California Redwood Coast-Humboldt County Airport (ACV) and Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) — offering a more convenient, stress-free travel experience. Flight XP121 departs BUR at 12:40 p.m., arriving ACV at 2:25 p.m. local time; flight XP122 departs ACV at 3:05 p.m., arriving BUR at 5:00 p.m. local time. The flight will be available four days per week on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
“The Humboldt Bay area is the cultural center of the iconic Redwood Coast, and we are thrilled to bring more choice and affordability to the region,” said Avelo Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy. “Our low fares make California’s iconic redwoods and Humboldt State University even more accessible, and will stimulate demand to support tourism in Arcata, Eureka and the surrounding communities. And for those considering Southern California for their next getaway, BUR is the ultra-convenient gateway to Greater LA.”
The route will be served by 189-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft – one of the most fuel-efficient commercial aircraft in the world – 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.
Humboldt County’s unmatched natural beauty is complemented by lively arts and culture, as well as acclaimed food, wine, beer and spirits. The Redwood Coast is the perfect rural getaway for those seeking a refreshing and relaxing escape from big city crowds.
About 200 miles north of San Francisco on Hwy 101, the Redwood Coast boasts the world’s tallest trees, the premier national and state redwood parks, six wild and scenic rivers, Victorian towns, and expansive, uncrowded beaches.
“We are excited to welcome Avelo to the Redwood Coast,” said Humboldt County Director of Aviation, Cody Roggatz. “Their service will allow travelers a convenient and affordable way to visit our amazing community. Their investment in our airport will be a real boost to our local economy and support our wonderful tourist businesses.”
BUR, named the 2019 “Best U.S. Airport” by Fodor’s Travel, offers seamless curbside pickup and drop-off, smaller crowds, shorter walking distances from curb to gate, unrivaled speed for plane-to-carousel bag delivery and shorter TSA security lines. No airport is closer to downtown LA, Hollywood, Pasadena and other attractions throughout Southern California, making BUR the fast-track to Greater LA.
