Put on your blue suede shoes: Allegiant Air is launching nonstop flights between Austin and Memphis, Tennessee this fall. The service, announced Tuesday, begins October 1, 2015.

Service from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport to Memphis International Airport will be available twice a week. Introductory fares are available for as low as $48 one way on the Allegiant Air website. 

"Allegiant is very pleased to continue growing in Austin with the addition of nonstop service to Memphis," said Allegiant Travel Company's Jude Bricker.
