GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (June 22, 2021) — Avelo, Western Colorado’s newest low-fare airline, is celebrating the
resilient Class of 2021 and the return to travel this summer by gifting 42 round trip tickets to recent graduates
residing in the region.
In all, 21 Class of 2021 grads from Western Colorado will win two round trip tickets as part of the Avelo Grads-on-the-
Go sweepstakes. Anyone 18 or older residing within 150 miles of Grand Junction Regional Airport (GJT)
graduating in 2021 from high school, college, university or technical / trade school is eligible to win. Graduates can
enter at aveloair.com/grads.
“This has been a challenging school year for students trying to remain academically engaged while often studying
remotely,” said Avelo Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy. “The Grand Junction area is home to dozens of schools. We
are inspired by the perseverance of the Class of 2021 and we can’t imagine a better graduation gift than to help
fuel their inspiration to travel and explore new places.”
Graduates can earn a second entry — increasing their chances of being selected — by posting a picture or video
related to their graduation on Twitter or Instagram, and tagging @Avelo, #GradsOnTheGo and #AveloGradSweepstakes. The entry deadline is July 20, 2021 and winners will be selected at random by August 17, 2021. Travel must be completed by December 31, 2021.

Nonstop Service to Los Angeles
Avelo flies nonstop between GJT and Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) – both airports offer more stress-free
alternatives to the major international airports in each market.
Whether Customers are departing or arriving, BUR offers a refreshingly hassle-free experience. Named the 2019
“Best U.S. Airport” by Fodor’s Travel, no airport is closer to downtown LA, Hollywood, Pasadena and other Southern
California attractions — making BUR the ultra-convenient, stress-free gateway to Greater LA. GJT offers an equally
seamless experience with convenient curbside pickup and drop-off, a quick walk from curb to gate, swift plane-tocarousel
bag delivery, and short TSA security lines.
Avelo flies 189-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft, one of the most fuel-efficient commercial aircraft globally, providing
Customers with a large, comfortable cabin with more room, more seats and more seating options than the regional
aircraft typically serving the airports in Avelo’s network. Avelo aircraft feature 60 seats with up to 9 inches of extra
legroom starting at $18.
