Allegiant Air expands domestically with six new routes

Allegiant Air - Savannah Airport

On 8 May, Savannah Airport welcomed the arrival of Allegiant Air’s twice-weekly flights from Cincinnati with a cake ceremony in the terminal.

On 6 May, Raleigh-Durham Airport celebrated the arrival of Allegiant Air, with three new routes from St. Pete-Clearwater, Orlando Sanford and Punta Gorda, all of which are served twice-weekly. Marking the achievement are Raleigh-Durham’s: Dickie Thompson, Board Chair; Tommy Hunt, Board Member; and Michael Landguth, President and CEO.

On 7 May, Tulsa Airport, serving the second-largest city in the State of Oklahoma celebrated the start of Allegiant Air’s twice-weekly departures to St. Pete-Clearwater. Passengers on the inaugural flight were treated with pies in front of the Golden Driller. Cutting the ribbon are: Jeff Mulder, Director, Tulsa Airport; and Kurt Harvey, Station Manager at Tulsa, Allegiant Air.

  • Allegiant Air continued to expand rapidly in the US domestic market with the addition of six new routes during the course of last week, all of which are operated twice-weekly by its 166-seat MD-80s. With the longest sector being the 1,543-kilometre route from St. Pete-Clearwater (PIE) to Tulsa (TUL), and the shortest being inaugurated from Orlando Sanford (SFB) to Raleigh-Durham (RDU), the ULCC will face no competition on any of the six new additions, five of which involve destinations in Florida. Raleigh-Durham in North Carolina is the newest airport to be added to the airline’s expanding network of cities served. See how Raleigh-Durham and Tulsa Airports’ FTWAs compare to others from around the world.
