BURBANK, Calif., and REDMOND, Ore., May 13, 2021 — America’s first new mainline airline in nearly 15 years — Avelo Airlines — commences service today between Los Angeles and Central Oregon. 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 these two scenic destinations.
Avelo will fly nonstop between Redmond Municipal Airport (RDM) and Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) — offering a more convenient, stress-free travel experience. Flight XP119 departs BUR at 7:10 a.m., arriving RDM at 9:15 a.m. local time; flight XP120 departs RDM at 9:55 a.m., arriving BUR at 12:10 p.m. local time. The flight will be available three times per week on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
“We are thrilled to bring an affordable new option and our caring, convenient service to the Redmond-Bend region,” said Avelo Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy. “Our lower fares will inspire travelers to explore Bend, a vibrant town that is home to the longest beer trail in the West and the gateway to the famed Crater Lake National Park. And for area residents considering Southern California for their next getaway, BUR is the ultra-convenient gateway to Greater LA.”
Redmond visitors can experience quaint shops, historic buildings, a vibrant dining and brew scene, an outdoor public art gallery, charming parks, and more. Located in the heart of Central Oregon, and just minutes away from Smith Rock State Park, the Deschutes River and Redmond-Bend is the ideal place for visitors to start their adventure.
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.
“The additional capacity and air service options Avelo Airlines brings to the Redmond Airport is a great benefit to all our Central Oregon communities,” states RDM Airport Director Zachary Bass.
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.
