Graduates from the class of 2021 across the American West are about to get the best grad gift ever — hundreds of free round-trip flights.
The travel gifts are courtesy of Avelo Airlines, a new carrier based in Los Angeles that started flying in April 2021. Recent high school or college graduates can sign up for the Grads on the Go with Avelo drawing on the carrier’s website by July 20, 2021. Grads can enter a second time by uploading a photo or video of their graduation on their social media with the @AveloAir and #AveloGradSweepstakes tags.
Avelo is a low-cost carrier that uses Burbank Airport as its hub and offers flights to 11 destinations at smaller, less expensive airports in California, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Montana, Colorado, and Arizona.
In each of the destinations Avelo serves, 21 graduates will be eligible to win two free round-trip flights each — so they can travel with a friend. Graduates must be 18 years or older and have graduated from high schools, colleges, universities, or trade schools within the communities that Avelo serves.
“This has been a challenging school year for students trying to remain academically engaged while often studying remotely,” said Andrew Levy, chairman and CEO of Avelo, in a press release. “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.”
The sweepstakes are also a great introduction to Avelo and its cheap flights to great places like Los Angeles, Bozeman, or Grand Junction. Winners of the drawing will be selected at random on or before August 17, 2021.
