Avelo Airlines continues to adjust its West Coast route map, this time announcing a second route from Las Vegas.

That will come Nov. 18, when the budget startup carrier begins flying nonstop between Las Vegas (LAS) and the Redwood Coast-Humboldt County Airport (ACV) near the northern California town of Eureka.

Avelo, which already flies from Eureka to its main base in Burbank (BUR), will have no direct competition on the new Las Vegas service.

The airline will offer two flights a week on the route, operating on the following schedule:

  • Avelo Flight 147: ACV => LAS: Departs 3 p.m., lands 4:45 p.m., all times local (Thursday, Sunday)
  • Avelo Flight 148: LAS => ACV: Departs 5:25 p.m., lands 7:25 p.m., all times local (Thursday, Sunday)

From Las Vegas, Eureka will join the Santa Rosa in California’s Sonoma County wine country as Avelo’s second destination.

Avelo’s growth in Las Vegas comes as the carrier has worked to fine tune its West Coast network since its launch earlier this year. The carrier began service in April with 11 routes from Burbank.

Since then, however, Avelo has scrapped several underperforming routes – to places such as Bozeman, Montana (BZN); Monterey, California (MRY); and St. George, Utah (SGU) – while adding several others.

Rolling the dice: New startup airline Avelo is adding Las Vegas, but will it work?

But it’s biggest adjustment so far came in July, when Avelo announced it would expand to Las Vegas with flights to Santa Rosa – giving the airline its first route that didn’t touch its base in Burbank.

Next up for Avelo will be its debut of service on the East Coast, which begins Nov. 3 with the first of five Florida routes from a new base the carrier is building in New Haven, Connecticut (HVN).
