Allegiant Air arrives in New York

Cincinnati ribbon cutting.

On 16 November Cincinnati celebrated with a ribbon cutting the start of Allegiant Air’s new four times weekly link to New York Newark. The 912-kilometre sector is already served by United Airlines and Delta Air Lines, with both carriers already offering 48 weekly flights on the airport pair between them.

  • Allegiant Air this week introduced eight new routes to its network, which included bringing a brand new airport to its schedule – New York Newark (EWR). On the 16 November the ULCC linked the New York airport with Cincinnati (CVG) and Savannah (SAV), while connections from Asheville (AVL) and Knoxville (TYS) were added the following day. Asheville is currently the only connection to Newark that does not see direct competition. As well as welcoming Newark to its network, the airline also introduced a further four routes to its schedule. The average weekly frequency of Allegiant Air’s Newark routes is 3.5, while the remaining sectors are all served twice-weekly. The average sector length is 1,302 kilometres.
