  • Very low, one-way fares between COS and BUR start at $49

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.; May 3, 2023 — Avelo Airlines will inaugurate service today from Colorado Springs Airport (COS) with exclusive nonstop service to Los Angeles. The new flights to L.A.’s best airport — Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) — will offer Colorado Springs the only nonstop flights to Los Angeles.

This new route, which begins with a special inaugural flight today, traditionally operates twice weekly on Thursdays and Sundays on Boeing Next-Generation 737 aircraft. May 5-15 this route will operate on Mondays and Fridays. Very low, one-way fares between Colorado Springs and BUR start at $49*. Customers can make reservations at AveloAir.com.

Avelo Airlines Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said, “Colorado Springs – it’s officially time to say hello to Avelo! Getting to Southern California is easier than ever with our exclusive nonstop service to Los Angeles. Colorado Springs residents can now say hello to affordable, convenient and reliable air travel. Avelo makes getting to all that L.A. has to offer a smooth and simple experience – including world-famous beaches, shopping, entertainment and restaurants.”

Director of Aviation for the Colorado Springs Airport Greg Phillips said, “Avelo Airlines beginning nonstop service to Hollywood-Burbank offers our community an easy way to Los Angeles and the California coast. Like Avelo, COS hopes to inspire travel for our city, and we’re looking forward to watching COS grow with our new airline partner. Colorado Springs residents now have even more options at Colorado’s small airport, and this exclusive service with Avelo offers affordable and convenient air travel to the West coast.”

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.

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.

At the same time, Colorado Springs Airport offers a refreshingly fast, smooth and welcoming hometown airport experience. The airport’s adjacency to major highways and other large cities makes it the region’s most convenient, comfortable and travel-friendly airport.

America’s Affordable and Convenient Airline

Avelo was founded with a vision to help its Customers save money and time. Since taking flight on April 28, 2021, Avelo has flown more than two million Customers on over 17,000 flights.

In addition to offering Customers everyday low fares on every route, Avelo Customers can always change or cancel their itineraries with no extra fees. Avelo also offers several unbundled travel-enhancing options that give Customers the flexibility to pay for what they value, including priority boarding, checked bags, carry-on overhead bags, and bringing a pet in the cabin.

Additionally, the American-made Boeing 737 jets Avelo flies offer a more spacious and comfortable experience than the small regional aircraft currently operating at most of the airports Avelo serves. Customers who value an advance seat assignment can choose from several modestly priced seating options, including seats with extra leg room, as well as pre-reserved window and aisle seating. One third of seats on Avelo aircraft are available for Customers who appreciate the comfort of extra legroom.

Avelo serves 44 destinations spanning 24 states. The airline has unlocked a new era of convenience, choice and competition in air travel by flying unserved routes to primarily underserved communities across the country. At least one airport on every Avelo flight is a small hometown airport – making every Avelo journey easier and more enjoyable.

At Avelo, every flight is also nonstop. This connection-free travel experience not only provides Avelo Customers with a faster and simpler travel experience, but also minimizes delays, cancellations and lost bags. In fact, Avelo has established itself as one of America’s most reliable airlines. In the first quarter of 2023, Avelo achieved the lowest flight cancellation rate and the second best on-time performance in the U.S. airline industry.

Avelo is distinguished by its Soul of Service culture. The culture is grounded in Avelo’s One Crew Value which promotes a welcoming and caring experience.
