Nonstop Service to Los Angeles

Avelo flies nonstop between ACV and Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR– both airports offer more stress-free alternatives to the major international airports in each market.

Whether Customers are departing or arriving, BUR offers a refreshingly hassle-free experience. Named the 2019 “Best U.S. Airport” by Fodor’s Travel, no airport is closer to downtown LA, Hollywood, Pasadena and other popular Southern California attractions — making BUR the ultra-convenient, stress-free gateway to Greater LA. ACV offers an equally seamless travel experience with convenient curbside pickup and drop-off, a quick walk from curb to gate, swift plane-to-carousel bag delivery, and short TSA security lines.

Avelo flies 189-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft, one of the most fuel-efficient commercial aircraft globally, providing Customers with a large, comfortable cabin with more room, more seats and more seating options than the regional aircraft typically serving the airports in Avelo’s network. Avelo aircraft feature 60 seats with up to 9 inches of extra legroom starting at $16.
