Avelo Airlines to Discontinue Direct Service from the California Redwood Coast-Humboldt County Airport to Las Vegas
Avelo Airlines informed Humboldt County officials today, that they will discontinue service between the California Redwood Coast-Humboldt County Airport (ACV) and the Las Vegas International Airport (LAS). The last flights between ACV-LAS will be on Sunday, May 1.
The service started twice weekly, on November 18, 2021, with flights on Thursdays and Sundays. The service got off to a successful start in November and December 2021, however in recent months the route became infeasible due to record high oil prices.
“We are disappointed to see this route not continue for the residents of Humboldt County,” said Cody Roggatz, Director of Aviation for the County of Humboldt. He added, “We worked for many years to try to establish ACV-LAS service and unfortunately due to factors outside of our control (fuel prices) this route is not sustainable for Avelo to continue operating at this time. We are thankful to Avelo for providing this service and look forward to the continued partnership, and future expansion, of the ACV-Los Angeles Service provided to the Hollywood-Burbank Airport.”
“We appreciate Avelo Airline’s investment in our market and are sorry that the service to Las Vegas was not sustainable,” added Gregg Foster, Executive Director of the Redwood Region Economic Development Commission. “We understand that changing conditions in the airline industry mean that every airline must carefully evaluate every market. We’re pleased that they will continue provide service to Hollywood-Burbank Airport. Don’t forget that best way to keep air service is to use it. Flying local is buying local!”
Avelo will continue to provide 3 weekly flights to and from the greater Los Angeles Area through the Hollywood-Burbank Airport. They will be adding a 4th weekly flight, on Saturdays, between mid-June and mid-August of this year. For booking information, please visit the Avelo Airlines website.
