London Southend Airport

Hollywood Burbank to be first base for Avelo Airlines and 11 routes

Formerly known as Bob Hope Airport, Hollywood Burbank Airport is located at the northern end of the Los Angeles metropolitan area. Traffic peaked at almost six million passengers in 2007 before falling for six successive years. However, between 2014 and 2019 traffic increased by 50% and reached a record figure of 5.98 million in 2019, the third year in a row that traffic had grown by more than 10%.

Southwest Airlines was the dominant carrier in 2019 accounting for 70% of all passengers, well ahead of Alaska Airlines (10%). United Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and JetBlue Airways each had between 4% and 6% of capacity. Spirit Airlines, which began serving Burbank in 2019 had just over 1%.

The leading routes in 2019 were to Oakland, San Jose SJC, Las Vegas, Sacramento and Phoenix. New destinations for 2019 were Atlanta (with Delta), Dallas/Fort Worth (with American) and Nashville (with Southwest).

Passenger numbers fell by 67% in 2020 to just under two million and Las Vegas became the leading route ahead of Oakland and Phoenix. JetBlue suspended its transcontinental services to Boston and New York JFK but these are set to resume in June. Newcomer Avelo Airlines announced Burbank as its first base and will start operations at the end of April to 11 destinations; Santa Rosa (on 28 April) followed by Pasco, Bozeman, Phoenix/Mesa, Ogden, Grand Junction, Medford, Eugene, Redmond/Bend, Arcata/Eureka and Redding.
