Allegiant Air commenced services from Akron/Canton to Fort Lauderdale on 2 October. The 1,653-kilometre sector will operate twice-weekly on Mondays and Fridays according to OAG Schedules Analyser data. The airport celebrated with a very impressive cake.

Austin-Bergstrom Airport celebrated the arrival of Allegiant Air’s inaugural service from Memphis on 1 October by treating passengers to live music from Memphis native and Austin musician, Kelley Mickwee, and guitarist, Andrew Hardin. Cutting the ribbon before boarding in Austin are: Glenn West, former President and CEO of the Make-A-Wish foundation, Central & Southern Texas; Kim Schaefer, Public Relations Manager, Allegiant Air; Julie Chase, VP and Chief Marketing Officer, Austin Convention & Visitors Bureau; and Jim Smith, Executive Director, Austin-Bergstrom Airport.

  • Allegiant Air commenced four new routes between the 1 and 2 October, all of which are flown using the airline’s MD-80s. The average sector length of the new services is 1,418-kilometres and none of the airport pairs will face direct competition. Commenting on the airline’s expansion from Austin-Bergstrom (AUS) with the launch of services from Memphis (MEM), Jim Smith, Executive Director of the airport said: “Allegiant has increased its presence in Austin this year. We welcome the continued expansion of Allegiant Air with the launch of services to Memphis, which brings new visitors to Central Texas, and creates more flying options for our residents.” All four new routes will be flown with a twice-weekly frequency according to OAG Schedules Analyser data.
