We all know the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport is the busiest in Montana and will probably break that record again in 2023. So it should come as no surprise that some of the airports around Montana are trying to get in on that action.

The Glacier Park International Airport in Kalispell is the closest airport to Glacier National Park, Flathead Lake, and other incredible areas in Northwest Montana. For many in the area, this airport is their only option to fly anywhere, and this news will be exciting for them.

Avelo Airlines will add a flight from Glacier Park International Airport to Hollywood Burbank Airport starting in May.

This will be a direct flight, and flights starting will be highly affordable to those who want to travel to Los Angeles but don't want to deal with LAX and the traffic. The Hollywood Burbank Airport is only twelve miles away from downtown Los Angeles and is known as a more laid-back place to fly into California.

This will be Avelo Airlines' second venture into a Montana airport. In 2021, Avelo Airlines offered the same flight out of the Bozeman Airport but had high competition from several larger airlines to Los Angeles, including JetBlue, Allegiant, United, and Alaska.
