Avelo Air Continues to Bridge the Coasts

Houston, Texas-based Avelo Air has unveiled four new routes out of Las Vegas, including two of which will continue to bridge the carrier’s network between coasts.

New routes out of Las Vegas include Redmond/Bend, Ore., which starts on Sept. 7, 2023; Eureka/Arcata, Calif. and Brownsville/South Padre Island, Texas which both begin on Sept. 8, 2023; and Dubuque, Iowa which begins on Sept. 13, 2023.

None of these are new destinations for Avelo but are instead new routes. This will be the second westward destination for Brownsville with Avelo as they already fly to Burbank, Calif. This will be Dubuque’s first westward destination with Avelo and in general as they are the only airline that operates to the airport.

Going West (and East)

For the most part, Avelo’s East and West Coast networks remain separate and operate independently. But, that is becoming less and less the case. In May, the carrier started flights from Brownsville, Texas to both Burbank and Orlando marking the first city that touches its networks on both coasts. Dubuque will become the second destination like this as the carrier already offers flights to Orlando.

Flights to Redmond/Bend will operate on Sundays and Thursdays, Brownsville/South Padre will operate on Mondays and Fridays, Dubuque will operate on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and Eureka/Arcata will also operate on Mondays and Fridays.

All flights newer flights announced will operate on different days with the exception of Brownsville/South Padre and Eureka/Arcata, but those flights still happen at different times and don’t overlap in terms of the time of the day.

Given that none of these flights overlap at all, they could end up using the same aircraft tail number to do all of these routes.

Being from a non-aviation family made it harder for him to be around planes and would only spend about three hours a month at the airport. He was so excited when he could drive by himself and the first thing he did with the license was get ice cream and go plane spotting for the entire day. When he has the time (and money) he likes to take spotting trips to any location worth a visit. He’s currently enrolled at Western Michigan University earning a degree in Aviation Management and Operations.
