Ogden Airport is excited to announce that Avelo Airlines will begin flight service from Ogden, Utah to Burbank, California, beginning May 4th, 2021. Anchored out of Burbank, California, Avelo Airlines offers affordable flights to 11 Western U.S. destinations.
Flight service from Ogden to Burbank will initially be offered six times per week and boasts benefits of commercial air travel without the challenges that are typically experienced at larger airports. Patrons travelling out of Ogden will experience convenient parking just steps away from their terminal, no crowds, convenient bag check, and a low-stress check-in experience.
Tom Christopulos, Director of Ogden’s Community and Economic Development Department, said, “Ogden City is excited to welcome Avelo Airlines to the Ogden-Hinckley Airport. The Los Angeles area is the top destination for air travelers from the Ogden area. Avelo’s flights from Ogden to Burbank will help serve this market. The new route will also improve visitor access to Ogden’s unparalleled outdoor recreation opportunities and mountain-to-metro lifestyle. We are pleased to expand our commercial air service at the Ogden-Hinckley Airport with Avelo and its new flights to Burbank.”
Likewise, business and leisure visitors from the L.A. area will have more cost-effective, convenient access to the greater Ogden area, and all that it has to offer.
“The new flight offered by Avelo Airlines is a great opportunity for our many visitors from the greater LA area to have easy, direct access to our amazing year-round outdoor recreation amenities,” said Sara Toliver, CEO of Visit Ogden. “The near-daily service may also provide for new business and meeting travel opportunities through the enhanced convenience the flight will provide.”
Expanding commercial air service out of the Ogden-Hinckley Airport is a key component of the airport’s long-term plan as well as the city’s economic development strategy. Ogden Airport continues to offer Allegiant Airlines bi-weekly service to Mesa, Arizona. Ogden Airport also continues to grow with general aviation and aerospace development.
