GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX) – The summer peak has been successful for GJT and America’s newest main airline, but with 189 seats on the plane, Grand Junction passengers did not fill as many as hoped.
Avelo’s team predict flight demand for our area to be low after the summer, thus suspending the services. Although this connection got cancelled, Grand Junction’s airport is grateful for what Avelo did for local tourism.
“They really did a nice job, just highlighting Grand Junction as a community,” Angela Padalecki reflects, “The Grand Junction name was on national media almost every day this summer, as there was a lot of buzz about a new airline and their first set of routes where we are amongst them.”
Avelo Airlines is leaving Grand Junction but not Colorado altogether. Starting in October, direct flights to Burbank, California will be go in and out of the Northern Colorado Regional Airport in the Fort Collins and Loveland area.
