The Eugene Airport was selected among just 12 airports as inaugural cities for startup budget airline Avelo.
Starting May 12, Avelo Airlines will begin new nonstop service between Hollywood Burbank Airport and the Eugene Airport. Flights will operate on four days of the week on Avelo’s 189-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft. Passenger may choose from several seating options including 129 standard slimline 29-inch pitch seats and an extra-legroom section with 60 seats.
The scheduled flight times (all times local) are as follows:
- BUR to EUG: 7:10 a.m. – 9:15 a.m.
- EUG to BUR: 9:55 a.m. – 12:10 p.m.
“We are thrilled to have been selected as one of the inaugural airports to be served by America’s first new mainline airline in more than a decade,” said Acting Eugene Airport Director Cathryn Stephens, A.A.E. “We are very excited about the addition of service to Hollywood Burbank Airport which will provide one more nonstop travel option for passengers in our region. It’s one more reason to fly local, fly EUG!”
The Burbank, California destination provides convenient access into the northern Los Angeles area; flying on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday; and providing a convenient option for leisure or business travelers. When Avelo starts up, the Hollywood Burbank flight will be the fourteenth nonstop route offered at EUG.
“Avelo has a simple purpose — to Inspire Travel,” said Avelo Founder, Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy. “People are ready to reconnect with family and friends and explore new places. Avelo is a different and better kind of airline, built from scratch to offer an affordable, convenient and caring travel experience.”
