REDMOND, Ore. (KTVZ) — Avelo Airlines on Friday began offering twice-a-week seasonal nonstop service to Palm Springs, California from Central Oregon’s Redmond Municipal Airport (RDM).

Avelo said it is the only airline at RDM offering nonstop service to Palm Springs. Very low, one-way fares between RDM and Palm Springs International Airport (PSP) starting at $39* are available at AveloAir.com.

Here’s the rest of the airline’s news release giving the details of the previously announced flights:

The new route will operate on Boeing Next-Generation 737 aircraft on Mondays and Fridays. In addition to Palm Springs, Avelo flies nonstop between RDM and Los Angeles’ Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) – LA’s most popular and convenient airport.

Avelo Airlines Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said, “We’re excited to start this new service from Central Oregon with our new exclusive nonstop route to Palm Springs. Our Central Oregon Customers already know that Avelo is the most convenient and affordable way to get to Los Angeles. Now flying to Palm Springs is easier than ever – whether for vacation, a weekend getaway, or reconnecting with family and friends.”

Redmond Municipal Airport Director Zachary Bass said, “RDM is very excited to grow our relationship with Avelo Airlines with their addition of Palm Springs direct service. Avelo has been a great new airline partner.”

In addition to offering customers everyday low fares on every route, Avelo Customers can always change or cancel their itineraries with no extra fees. Avelo also offers several unbundled travel-enhancing options that give Customers the flexibility to pay for what they value, including priority boarding, checked bags, carry-on overhead bags, and bringing a pet in the cabin.

Additionally, the American-made Boeing 737 jets Avelo flies offer a more spacious and comfortable experience than the small regional aircraft currently operating at most of the airports Avelo serves.

One third of seats on Avelo aircraft are available for Customers who appreciate the comfort of extra legroom.
