The Entertainment Capital of the World
As one of North America’s leading business and leisure destinations, Las Vegas offers something for everyone, including unrivaled entertainment and nightlife, exhilarating sporting events, world-famous hotels and dining experiences, casinos, shopping and more. Beyond the strip, outdoor adventures, family friendly activities, top-rated golf courses and iconic attractions await visitors of all ages.
“We’re delighted that Avelo Airlines is once again expanding its nonstop service to Las Vegas with the announcement of flights from Redding, Calif.,” said H. Fletch Brunelle, vice president of marketing for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. “There are so many incredible new experiences for both business and leisure visitors, from first-time residencies by the world’s most popular artists to unparalleled sports events, dining, shopping, spas and attractions. We can’t wait to welcome visitors from Redding for an experience they’ll only find in Vegas.”
Northern California’s Outdoor Adventure Headquarters
With 600 square miles of state and national parks, Redding is the ideal gateway to a sun-and-nature-filled Northern California vacation. With 42 stunning waterfalls, picturesque lakes and the Sacramento River in close proximity to the city, water recreation plays a vital role in the area’s attractions. From houseboating on Shasta Lake to sunbathing on Whiskeytown’s shoreline, to rafting or kayaking down the Sacramento River, there’s something for water lovers at every level. Outdoor enthusiasts will love the mountains and the access to hundreds of miles of biking and hiking trails. Coupled with its small-town charm, Redding is the perfect escape for the city-weary traveler.
“This Avelo flight service between Redding and Las Vegas will provide a wonderful new travel opportunity for people on both sides of the equation,” said Jim Wadleigh, City of Redding Airports Manager. “Redding is excited to welcome Las Vegas travelers to the incredible outdoor playground we have to offer here in Northern California. If ‘the best of both worlds’ was a flight service, this would be it.”
A Different, Better and More Affordable Travel Experience
Avelo’s everyday low fares have no change or cancellation fees. There is also no charge for Customers who choose to make reservations by phone. Additionally, Avelo 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 for bringing a pet in the cabin.
The single-class, fuel-efficient 189-seat 737-800 mainline jets Avelo operates to and from RDD offer a more spacious and comfortable experience than the regional aircraft historically serving that airport. Customers may choose from several seating options, including seats with extra leg room, as well as pre-reserved window and aisle seating.
