Ogden-Hinckley Airport is excited to announce that Avelo Airlines will begin flight service from Ogden, Utah to Burbank, California, beginning May 4th, 2021. Based 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 6 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 to Burbank will serve this market with the added convenience of direct flights from the Ogden Airport. We are pleased to expand our commercial air service at the Ogden-Hinckley Airport.”
Likewise, business and leisure visitors from the Los Angeles area will have a 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 meetings travel opportunities through the enhanced convenience the flight will provide.”
Avelo Airlines flight XP 107 departs BUR Monday through Saturday at 11:00 a.m. arriving in OGD at 2:00 p.m. local time. Avelo Airlines flight XP 108 departs OGD at 2:40 p.m., arriving in BUR at 3:40 p.m. local time. The route will be served by 189-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft – one of the most fuel-efficient commercial aircraft in the world – providing customers with a large, comfortable cabin with more room, more seats and more seating options than typical regional aircraft.
"When Avelo begins service to the Ogden-Hinckley Airport, we will bring our surprisingly low fares to the area's famed ski towns, Salt Lake City, and the over 170,000 acres of national forest and ski resorts," said Avelo Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy. “OGD is just a short ride from FrontRunner, the quick and convenient commuter rail system between Ogden, Salt Lake City, and Provo, creating a new and affordable connection for Southern Californians looking to explore some of the best that Utah has to offer. And for those considering LA for their next getaway, BUR is the ultra-convenient, stress-free gateway to Greater LA. No airport is closer to downtown LA, Hollywood, Pasadena and other attractions throughout Southern California.”
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.
