SANTA ROSA, Calif. July 15, 2021 — Avelo Airlines, inspiring travel through everyday low fares, is expanding its Bay Area service with the addition of the only direct flights between Sonoma County and Las Vegas.
Starting September 16, Avelo will fly nonstop between Charles M. Schulz — Sonoma County Airport (STS) and McCarran International Airport (LAS). With the addition of LAS to its network, Avelo will now fly to two destinations from STS: Las Vegas and Los Angeles through Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) – the region’s most convenient and popular airport.
Avelo will provide North Bay and Sonoma County residents long-sought direct access to Las Vegas at everyday low fares. One-way fares on the new route start at $39*.
Avelo Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said “Our expanded service at STS demonstrates Avelo’s commitment to providing the Bay Area with more choice and affordability in air travel. This new route makes it easier than ever for our Customers to visit the entertainment capital of the world from the region’s most convenient and relaxing airport.”
Operating on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, flight XP127 departs STS at 10:05 a.m., arriving LAS at 11:45 a.m. Flight XP128 departs LAS at 12:25 p.m., arriving STS at 2:05 p.m. Flights between STS and LAS can be booked at aveloair.com.
“We are very excited to have our newest airline partner expanding to new route opportunities and the return of the very popular Las Vegas flights,” said Jon Stout, airport manager, Charles M. Schulz — Sonoma County Airport.
The Entertainment Capital of the World
As one of North America’s leading business and leisure destinations, Las Vegas offers something for everyone, including unrivaled entertainment and nightlife, exhilarating sporting events, world-famous hotels and dining experiences, casinos, shopping and more. Beyond the strip, outdoor adventures, family friendly activities, top-rated golf courses and iconic attractions await visitors of all ages.
“Avelo Airlines is ensuring that there is once again service between these two renowned destinations, something we’ve been lacking for years,” said Chris Jones, McCarran International Airport chief marketing officer. “Whether travelers are looking for the entertainment of Las Vegas or the allures of wine country, this new nonstop service will provide that opportunity in a quick and easy manner.”
“We’re delighted that Avelo Airlines is expanding service to Las Vegas, adding a new nonstop route between McCarran International Airport and Charles M. Schulz – Sonoma County Airport,” said H. Fletch Brunelle, vice president of marketing for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. “Every new seat into Las Vegas provides an exciting opportunity for growth, and right now there is incredible pent-up desire for travel. We can’t wait to welcome visitors back to experience the new resorts, venues, restaurants, sports and world-class entertainment they’ll only find in Las Vegas.”
Avelo operates a fleet of Boeing Next Gen 737 aircraft—one of the most fuel-efficient commercial aircraft in the world. Boeing 737-800 aircraft with 189 seats will service the STS-LAS route, providing Customers with a large, comfortable cabin with more room, seats and seating options than the regional aircraft typically serving STS. Avelo aircraft feature 60 seats with up to 9 inches of extra legroom starting at $11.
