New non-stop service makes travel between Southern California and Big Sky country easier than ever
BURBANK, Calif., BOZEMAN, Mont., April 30, 2021 — America’s first new mainline airline in nearly 15 years — Avelo Airlines — takes off for its first flight from Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) to Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport (BZN), commencing service between Southern California and Bozeman.
Avelo flight XP105 departed BUR at 8:00 a.m. and with a schedule arrived into BZN at 11:25 a.m. The inaugural flight from BZN to BUR departs today at 12:05 p.m. local time, with a 1:40 p.m. scheduled arrival BUR.
“Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport is the gateway to Big Sky country and the airport of choice for two of our nation’s most famous national parks,” said Avelo Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy. “Avelo will bring lower fares and increase choice and convenience to and from Bozeman and the surrounding area, which is world-renowned for fly fishing, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, skiing, hunting, backcountry exploring, and of course, Yellowstone National Park.”
With everyday low fares starting at $19, Avelo’s four-times-per-week service between BUR and BZN will make it easier than ever to enjoy some of Bozeman’s most popular destinations. 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 BZN.
“We’re honored to be one of the launch markets for Avelo Airlines. Local passengers will enjoy Hollywood Burbank Airport’s size and proximity to a wide variety of attractions in Southern California while inbound passengers have easy access to nearly every outdoor activity imaginable including a short drive to the world’s first national park,” said Scott Humphrey, Deputy Airport Director.
Whether Customers are departing or arriving, BUR – named the 2019 “Best U.S. Airport” by Fodor’s Travel – offers a refreshingly hassle-free experience, including 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.
“For those considering LA for their next getaway, BUR is the ultra-convenient, stress-free gateway to Greater LA. No airport is closer to downtown LA, Hollywood, Pasadena and other attractions throughout Southern California,” said Levy.
Avelo Airlines flight XP105 departs BUR on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays at 8:00 a.m. arriving BZN at 11:25 a.m. local time.; flight XP106 departs BZN at 12:05 p.m., arriving BUR at 1:40 p.m.
