Avelo Airlines Launches Service Between Los Angeles and Redding

BURBANK, Calif., and REDDING, Calif., May 20, 2021 — America’s first new mainline airline in nearly 15 years — Avelo Airlines — commences service today between Los Angeles and Redding, California. With everyday low fares and attractive introductory one-way fares starting at $19, Avelo is ushering in a new era of choice, low fares and convenience between two scenic California destinations.

Avelo will fly nonstop between Redding Municipal Airport (RDD) and Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) — offering a more convenient, stress-free travel experience. Flight XP123 departs BUR 12:40 p.m., arriving RDD at 2:15 p.m. local time; flight XP124 departs RDD at 2:55 p.m., arriving BUR at 4:40 p.m. local time. The flight will be available three times per week on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

“Our lower fares and direct flights between Redding and Greater Southern California will save travelers time and money, and provide a more enjoyable travel experience,” said Avelo Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy. “Travelers will benefit from the direct connection to Redding and the surrounding area, which boasts more than 600 square miles of State and National Parks and Forests within a 30-mile radius. And for area residents considering Southern California for their next getaway, BUR is the ultra-convenient gateway to Greater LA.”

Redding, California is the ideal gateway to a sun-and-nature-filled Northern California vacation. With 42 stunning waterfalls, picturesque lakes and the Sacramento River in close proximity to the city with the small-town charm, water recreation plays a vital role in the area’s attractions. From houseboating on Shasta Lake to sunbathing on Whiskeytown’s shoreline, to rafting or kayaking down the Sacramento River, there’s something for water lovers at every level. Outdoor enthusiasts will love the mountains and the access to hundreds of miles of biking and hiking trails. A flight into Redding creates the perfect balance for the city-weary traveler.

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.

“Avelo is creating a connection between two very different leisure travel markets – through two airports that are geared toward taking the stress out of travel,” said Redding Airport Manager Jim Wadleigh. “The Redding community has long-sought access to the Greater Los Angeles area at more affordable rates and this flight service provides just that. Those traveling to Northern California from Greater Los Angeles will find the Redding area strikes a perfect balance between adventure and relaxation. The flight service will appeal to those looking for a change of scenery in both directions.”

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.
