Allegiant Air launched flights between Denver and Asheville on 16 May, with the latter airport pulling out all the stops with the route launch cake that it produced to herald the service. Flights will operate twice-weekly (Wednesdays and Saturdays) using the carrier’s fleet of A320s. Denver becomes the airline’s seventh route from Asheville.
- Allegiant Air expanded its networks at Denver (DEN) and San Diego (SAN) airports this week, with the ULCC adding two spokes from the Colorado hub while the Californian city saw only one connection added. The first route to launch was on 16 May, coming in the form of a 2,002-kilometre connection between Denver and Asheville (AVL), while a second route to Bellingham (BLI), at a distance of 1,725 kilometres from Denver, was inaugurated on 18 May. The sole new route from San Diego, a 1,368-kilometre sector to Eugene (EUG), was launched on 17 May. Flights to Asheville will be flown using the carrier’s fleet of A320s, while the other two routes will see A319 operations. Neither of the three routes launched by Allegiant Air this week will face direct competition based on OAG schedules.
