The ultra low-cost carrier said it’s adding the routes as demand for pleasure travel remains high.
“We continue to see historically high demand from leisure travelers, so we are thrilled to add these routes to our network and build on the success we’ve had in these markets,” Drew Wells, chief revenue officer, said in a statement detailing the new routes.
Allegiant’s business model is based on connecting small- and medium-size markets to popular leisure destinations in places like Florida, Phoenix, Las Vegas and California. In recent years, Allegiant has expanded its list of focus cities to include destinations like Austin, Baltimore, Nashville, New Orleans and Newark/New York, among others.
