Raise a Glass: Avelo Airlines’ Free Wine Case Check on National Wine Day

Starting this Saturday, May 25th, in celebration of National Wine Day, Avelo Airlines is offering a special treat for its customers. Travelers departing from Sonoma County Airport (STS) can check a case of wine for free, allowing them to bring home memories of California Wine Country.

Avelo Airlines provides nonstop flights from STS to various destinations including Portland/Salem, Bend/Redmond, Boise, Kalispell, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Palm Springs. This new initiative enhances the travel experience by combining affordable flights with the pleasure of savoring Sonoma’s renowned wines.

Andrew Levy, Founder and CEO of Avelo Airlines, stated, “We know that visiting vineyards and sampling wines is a major draw for Sonoma County visitors. At Avelo, we love creating memorable experiences. We hope our Wine Travels Free program will enhance our customers’ enjoyment of California Wine Country.”

Passengers aged 21 or older can transport one case of wine, containing up to 12 bottles and weighing 50 lbs or less, at no extra cost. This offer is available exclusively for flights departing from Sonoma County Airport.

To ensure safe transport, travelers must pack their wine securely in protective cases or boxes using materials like Styrofoam, bubble wrap, or cardboard liners. Avelo Airlines will not provide packing supplies at the airport, so passengers should come prepared.

Before departure, customers need to present their properly packed wine case to an Avelo crewmember at the airport ticket counter. This simple process ensures that the wine is safely checked in and ready for the journey.

Sonoma County, home to over 425 wineries, is a dream destination with its towering redwoods, 55 miles of Pacific coastline, and charming small towns. The region offers diverse activities including hiking, biking, fishing, and camping, along with world-class dining, art galleries, theaters, and festivals.

Charles M. Schulz – Sonoma County Airport serves as the gateway to the Bay Area and Wine Country, providing a stress-free travel experience. With its close proximity to renowned vineyards, STS is the ideal starting point for exploring Northern California’s wine scene.

Since its launch in April 2021, Avelo Airlines has flown over 4.6 million customers, offering a new level of convenience and choice. By serving unserved routes and flying to smaller airports, Avelo ensures a smooth and enjoyable travel experience.

Avelo is known for its reliability, with the lowest flight cancellation rate and top on-time performance in the U.S. airline industry in 2023. The airline allows customers to change or cancel itineraries with no extra fees, ensuring a flexible travel experience.

Families benefit from Avelo’s policy of automatically seating children under 13 with an accompanying adult at no additional cost. The airline also offers extra legroom seats and various travel-enhancing options for a more comfortable journey.
