KALISPELL, Mont.; March 21, 2023 — Avelo Airlines announced today exclusive nonstop service from Kalispell to Los Angeles-Hollywood.

Avelo Airlines Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said, “Kalispell – it’s time to say hello to Avelo! Our exclusive nonstop service to Los Angeles makes getting to Southern California easier than ever. Kalispell residents can now say hello to affordable, convenient and reliable air travel. Avelo makes experiencing all that L.A. has to offer a smooth and simple experience – from sun-soaked beaches to world-famous shopping, sports, entertainment and restaurants.”
Glacier Park International Airport Director Rob Ratkowski said, “We are excited to have airline and destination options expanding here at Glacier Park International Airport. Avelo is a welcome addition to the GPIA family. More flight options will encourage competitive fares to the L.A. basin, and we look forward to the opportunities this new partnership will provide for residents and those wanting to travel to our beautiful area.”
BUR — L.A.’s Best Airport
Situated in the heart of Southern California, BUR is surrounded by L.A.’s iconic beaches, dining, entertainment, shopping and sun-soaked outdoor recreation.
Hollywood Burbank Airport Executive Director Frank Miller said, “Avelo’s service from Burbank to Kalispell gives Southern Californians a convenient way to discover and explore a different dimension of the great outdoors. It also allows Montanans an easy opportunity to explore all that Southern California has to offer, at great low fares.”
Whether travelers are departing or arriving, BUR offers a refreshingly convenient and hassle-free experience. Named the 2019 “Best U.S. Airport” by Fodor’s Travel, BUR features include seamless curbside pickup and drop-off, smaller crowds, unrivaled speed for plane-to-carousel bag delivery, faster TSA security lines, and short walking distances between the terminal and ground transportation, parking, and rental cars (instead of the time-consuming shuttle buses required at L.A.’s much larger airport). All of this makes BUR the ultra-convenient, stress-free gateway to Los Angeles.
