Ultra-low-cost start-up Avelo plans to expand its service from the Bay Area’s Charles M. Schulz Sonoma County Airport (STS) by adding four new nonstop routes, including Boise, Idaho, Kalispell, Mont., Portland/Salem, Ore., and Pasco, Wash. This brings the total number of nonstop routes offered by the carrier from STS to eight joining Burbank, Las Vegas, and Redmond/Bend, Ore.

“Sonoma County Airport is by far the Bay Area’s best airport – its small, smooth and seamless travel experience is unmatched by any other airport in the region. Which is why we are doubling the number of nonstop destinations Avelo offers from STS. With eight popular nonstop routes spanning the West Coast, Avelo makes getting to and from the Bay Area and California Wine Country more affordable and easier than ever. These new routes are just a preview of the exciting opportunities ahead for Avelo when our new STS base opens in May,” Avelo Chairman and CEO said in a press release.

The new routes are scheduled to begin operating in May 2024 and will be flown at various frequencies.

The new routes are scheduled as follows:

  • Boise, Idaho: Beginning May 2, with flights on Thursdays and Sundays
  • Kalispell, Mont: Beginning May 1, with flights on Wednesdays and Saturdays
  • Portland/Salem, Ore. Beginning May 3, with flights on Mondays and Fridays
  • Pasco, Wash.: Beginning May 1, with flights on Wednesdays and Saturdays

Expanding From a New Base

In addition to the new routes, Avelo also announced that it will be establishing STS as its newest base effective on May 1. Two 737s will initially be based at STS along with up to 50 crew members.

“With four new destinations on the map, Avelo is really expanding the travel possibilities here at STS. This is, in the best way, going to be impactful for all of Sonoma County’s residents. This is the single largest announcement of new destinations at one time in the airport’s history,” STS airport manager Jon Stout added.
