MEDFORD, Ore. — The Rogue Valley International Medford Airport is now host to new routes from a new airline. Avelo Airlines, the first new U.S. mainline airline in almost 15 years, starts service between Medford and the Los Angeles area this week.

Avelo boasts "one-way fares starting at $19," and will offer nonstop flights between MFR and the Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR). The airline is using 189-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft on the route, which Avelo says is one of the most fuel-efficient planes in the world.

"We are excited to bring our lower fares and caring convenient service to Medford and make it easier than ever to travel between Southern California and the heart of Southern Oregon," said Avelo Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy. "We will bring more choice and affordability to customers who want to explore the Rogue Valley wine region, Crater Lake, and the Table Rocks. And for those considering Southern California for their next getaway, BUR is the ultra-convenient gateway to Greater LA."

The route offers flights from Burbank at 4:20 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, arriving in Medford at 6:10 p.m. Flights from Medford to Burbank depart at 6:50 p.m. and arrive at 8:50 p.m. On Sundays, the flights depart Burbank at 11:10 a.m. and arrive in Medford at 1 p.m., then depart Medford at 1:40 p.m. and arrive in Burbank at 3:40 p.m.

"We are overwhelmed with excitement that Medford is one of Avelo's first choices for its new services," said MFR director Jerry Brienza. "Southern Oregon has become a favorite for adventurous vacationers as well as those who just want to enjoy its serenity; and Burbank provides direct access to California's hottest attractions. Avelo Airlines has great leadership and will no doubt be a strong competitor for years to come."

MFR plans to celebrate the new airline's arrival with a ceremony at the airport on Tuesday evening, with airport fire trucks creating a "traditional water arch" to welcome the arriving Avelo plane.
