On Tuesday, Allegiant Air announced it is adding a new route from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport beginning on June 4. The airline will now offer seasonal nonstop service from ABIA to Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.
In honor of the announcement, Allegiant is offering $64 one-way fares from ABIA to CVG for a limited time. This marks the carrier's third route from ABIA: Allegiant also offers flights to both Las Vegas and Orlando.
Offering routes between medium-sized markets is becoming a common practice for the airline, notes Airways News, an industry publication. “We see that they are continuing to grow in Cincinnati by adding medium-sized markets like Austin-Cincinnati that network carriers won’t touch,” Kevin Schorr, vice president of Campbell-Hill Aviation Group, told the trade magazine. “This is a perfect market for a 50-seat jet, but everyone is getting rid of 50 seat [planes] and Delta continues to cut flights at Cincinnati.”
Allegiant's introductory fares end on Wednesday, February 25, so act fast. To purchase a ticket, head to allegiantair.com or call 702-505-8888.
