Allegiant increases its presence at Oakland, CA; adds seven destinations
Following an announcement made in late January, Allegiant Air inaugurated Oakland, CA (OAK) as its eight operations base last week. On 26 April, services to Billigins, MT (BIL), Medford, OR (MFR) and Redmond-Bend, OR (RDM) were launched, followed by flights to Bozeman, MT (BZN), Idaho Falls, ID (IDA), Kalispell, MT (FCA), and Missoula, MT (MSO). All flights from the San Francisco Bay Area airport are offered with twice-weekly frequencies using the airline’s MD80s. None of the routes face direct competition, but United serves Medford, Redmond-Bend and Idaho Falls from San Francisco International.
