Punta Gorda, Fla. Aug. 10, 2021  — Allegiant (NASDAQ: ALGT) today announces nonstop service to Bentonville, Ark. and Austin, Texas from Punta Gorda Airport. To celebrate, Allegiant is offering one-way fares on the new routes as low as $49.*

The new routes are part of a 22-route expansion across Allegiant’s network, launching just in time to plan winter holiday getaways.

“A hallmark of Allegiant’s service is to connect travelers to warmer destinations where they can enjoy a variety of outdoor leisure activities,” said Drew Wells, Allegiant’s senior vice president of revenue and network planning. “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.”

More than ever, travelers appreciate the convenience Allegiant provides by offering nonstop flights that get them from point-to-point, without the hassle of layovers or connections, Wells said. They also like the convenient access through the smaller airports Allegiant serves in communities that have traditionally lacked commercial air service.
