Avelo Airlines joins L.A.’s Hollywood Burbank Airport for new terminal groundbreaking

Avelo Airlines joined Los Angeles’ Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) today for the groundbreaking of the airport’s new terminal.

The 355,000 square-foot facility will replace BUR’s current 94-year-old terminal utilized by Avelo and eight other airlines.

BUR’s new terminal will have 14 gates, a variety of options for dining and shopping, more space to move about, and an upgraded TSA checkpoint, among other features.

Key speakers included BUR Executive Director Frank Miller, President of the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority Felicia Williams and Rep.

Tony Cardenas, who represents California’s 29th congressional district.

Avelo’s Director of Airport Relations Somer Shindler represented Avelo at the ceremony.

Andrew Levy, Avelo Airlines Chairman and CEO said, “BUR is our kind of airport. Small, fast, easy and convenient – which made it a natural choice for Avelo’s first base of operation.

“Our Customers love this airport and we look forward to the even greater convenience and travel-friendly enhancements our Customers will enjoy when the new terminal opens.

“We are grateful for the strong partnership Frank and the rest of the BUR airport team have demonstrated over the past three years. Avelo looks forward to continuing to Inspire Travel at BUR for years to come.”

BUR was Avelo’s first base of operation when the airline took flight on April 28, 2021 – becoming America’s first new airline in nearly 15 years.
