Allegiant Air expands with six additional routes

Pittsburgh Allegiant Air

Seen cutting the ribbon in Pittsburgh to officially open Allegiant Air’s route to Destin-Fort Walton are the inaugural flight crew. The carrier will offer twice-weekly (Wednesdays and Saturdays) flights on the route utilising its A319s according to OAG schedules. The Floridian airport also gained flights to Baltimore/Washington and New York Newark this week.

  • Allegiant Air this week opened six new US domestic services, of which four are unique airport pairs. Of the two routes that will face direct competition, the biggest threat is on the 1,714-kilometre link between Cincinnati (CVG) and Denver (DEN) which will go head-to-head with Frontier Airlines and United Airlines who both offer twice-daily flights, plus Delta Air Lines which operates twice-weekly flights. The average weekly frequency of the new routes is 2.2 and the average sector length is 1,504 kilometres.
