An Avelo flight touches down in Las Vegas.
Wanna go to Vegas?
Avelo Airlines announced this morning that it will begin offering twice weekly nonstop flights from Humboldt County to Las Vegas, Nevada, in November.
“We are excited to add this second popular vacation and entertainment destination to our Eureka/Arcata schedule,” Avelo Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said in a press release. “Getting to Vegas from the Humboldt Bay Area is now easier and more affordable than ever. The addition of Las Vegas to our existing Los Angeles service demonstrates our commitment to providing more choice and convenient access to the places our customers want to go go at everyday low fares.”
Just how low are those fares? Well, the company says they will start as low as $29 one-way, though that’s for a limited number of seats and “additional fees for carry-on and checked bags, assigned seats and other optional services may apply.”
The flights will operate on Thursdays and Sundays, leaving Humboldt County at 3 p.m. Thursdays (arriving in Vegas at 4:45 p.m.) and returning from Vegas at 5:25 p.m. Sundays (arriving in McKinleyville at 7:25 p.m.). The service begins Nov. 18.
