Allegiant Air has announced plans to introduce multiple new routes to Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB), Las Vegas McCarran International Airport (LAS), St Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport (PIE) and Punta Gorda Airport (PGD), as well as singular services between Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and San Antonio and between Montrose Regional Airport (MTJ) and Las Vegas.
Year-round nonstop services to SFB from Omaha, Nebraska; Pittsburgh; and San Antonio (which is a new city destination for Allegiant), will operate twice-weekly from 5 November. Twice-weekly flights from both Rochester, New York; and Kansas City, Missouri, to SFB will commence on 13 November. There will also be a once-weekly seasonal route between SFB and Grand Island, Nebraska, from 7 November until spring 2016.
From 5 November, Allegiant will also offer twice-weekly year-round routes between LAS and both Belleville, Illinois; and Oklahoma City. On 6 November, a twice-weekly service between LAS and San Antonio will also be introduced by the carrier.
PIE will be connected year-round with twice-weekly flights to Appleton, Wisconsin; and Scranton, Pennsylvania from 6 November. Flights between PIE and Kansas City (a second new city destination for Allegiant) will operate twice-weekly from 12 November.
Year-round flights to PGD will take place twice-weekly from Grand Rapids, Michigan from 4 November; Akron/Canton, Ohio from 6 November; and Kansas City from 13 November.
Finally, the year-round twice-weekly routes between FLL and San Antonio and seasonal service between MTJ and Las Vegas will begin on 5 November and 18 December respectively, with the latter due to end during spring 2016.
“We're very excited to announce these new routes and the expansion of our ultra-low-cost air service to two new cities,” commented Jude Bricker, Allegiant Travel Company’s SVP planning. “These new nonstop flights will launch just in time for travellers to jet away to a sunny destination during the winter months.”
