COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.; Feb. 23, 2023 – Avelo Airlines announced today exclusive nonstop service to Los Angeles via Hollywood-Burbank Airport (BUR) from Colorado Springs Airport (COS). The new flights will offer Colorado Springs the only nonstop flights to LA.
This new route will begin on May 3 and operate three-times weekly on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays on Boeing Next-Generation 737 aircraft. Introductory 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 time to say hello to Avelo! Our exclusive nonstop service to LA makes getting to Southern California easier than ever. Colorado Springs residents can now say hello to affordable, convenient and reliable air travel. Avelo makes getting to all that LA has to offer a smooth and simple experience – from sun-soaked beaches to world-famous shopping, entertainment and restaurants.”
Avelo will serve LA’s most popular airport – Hollywood-Burbank Airport (BUR), introducing a more convenient, affordable and reliable option for visiting Southern California. 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.
Director of Aviation for the Colorado Springs Airport Greg Phillips said, “We’re thrilled to welcome Avelo Airlines to the Colorado Springs Airport. Avelo inspires travel through world-class service at affordable prices and their purpose aligns with ours. Although we’re Colorado’s small airport, we’re big on customer service and friendliness and we are looking forward to having Avelo join our airport family. The L.A. Basin is a large, under-served market for COS, so with Avelo providing nonstop service to Burbank, our community can easily access the West Coast.”
BUR — LA’s Best Airport
Situated in the heart of Southern California, BUR is surrounded by LA’s iconic beaches, dining, entertainment, shopping and sun-soaked outdoor recreation.
Hollywood Burbank Airport Executive Director Frank Miller said, “I am very pleased with the announcement of service from Burbank to Colorado Springs as Avelo continues to provide our region with convenient non-stop air service to new markets.”
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 LA’s much larger airport). All of this makes BUR the ultra-convenient, stress-free gateway to LA.
