The Las Vegas-based airline announced Tuesday that it would begin serving 10 additional airports, most of which are in the Northeast.
"We are pleased to bring more convenient, low-cost vacation options to more communities," Andrew C. Levy, Allegiant Travel Company President, said. "Allegiant is dedicated to making vacations more affordable for more people, offering our customers the lowest possible base fare and nonstop service to the most popular vacation destinations."
Among the new cities to be served by the airline are Orlando, Fla.; Charlottesville, Va.; Clarksburg W.Va.; Concord, N.C.; Syracuse, N.Y. and Manhattan, Kan.
With the new destinations, Allegiant will now serve a total of 99 airports across the United States. That is two more than Southwest Airlines, known to be the largest domestic carrier. However, unlike Southwest who has daily flights, Allegiant normally flies twice a week to most cities.
The airline's most coveted new trips are probably the nonstop flights from Oklahoma City and Tulsa to Orlando.
Some of the new fights will operate bi-weekly from Tulsa International Airport to Orlando-Sanford International Airport beginning Friday, October 25. Others will operate twice weekly from Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City to Orlando-Sanford International Airport beginning Thursday, November 14.
Allegiant, which mainly serves travelers looking for affordable direct flights, reportedly flew around 7 million passengers last year.
