Allegiant Airlines, which is slated to begin service from Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport this fall, has announced additional routes from the Twin Cities.
The Las Vegas-based airline on Tuesday said it will begin offering nonstop service to Destin, Florida, on Oct. 1 and Mesa, Arizona, on Nov. 24.
These new routes are part of Allegiant's 22-route expansion across its network and are the latest routes from MSP Airport.
Earlier this summer, Allegiant said it would begin offering service at MSP Airport in the fall with three routes: Asheville, North Carolina, on Oct. 7; Palm Beach, Florida, on Oct. 7; and Punta Gorda/Fort Meyers, Florida, on Oct. 8.
“A hallmark of Allegiant’s service is to connect travelers to warmer destinations where they can enjoy a variety of outdoor leisure activities,” Drew Wells, Allegiant’s senior vice president of revenue and network planning, said in a statement. “And we’ve continued that tradition with this expansion by giving customers more affordable, nonstop options to visit Florida, Arizona and California during the fall and winter seasons.”
Allegiant Airlines also offers service out of the St. Cloud Regional Airport, with flights to Destin, Florida; Mesa, Arizona; and Punta Gorda/Fort Meyers, Florida. Though all remaining flights for the season from St. Cloud to Destin were canceled on July 8 due to labor shortages and increased traffic for Allegiant and at the Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport.
It's unclear if flights from MSP to Destin will face the same issues. Bring Me The News had reached out to Allegiant Airlines for details on the previously canceled routes and if there would be impacts at MSP Airport, but did not hear back.
