Allegiant announces nonstop service from Destin-Fort Walton Beach to Las Vegas, Minneapolis

Special to Gannett

Allegiant recently announced nonstop service to Las Vegas and Minneapolis, connecting Northwest Florida residents to two of the nation’s most popular destinations.

To celebrate, Allegiant is offering one-way fares on the new routes as low as $39. The new routes are part of a 22-route expansion across Allegiant’s network, launched just in time to plan winter holiday getaways.

Two new Northwest Florida flights are among 22 routes across the country Alliegient Airlines is adding ahead of the winter holiday season.

“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.

The new routes to Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport (VPS) include:

  • Minneapolis, Minnesota, via Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport (MSP) – beginning Oct. 1 with one-way fares as low as $49.
  • Las Vegas, Nevada, via McCarran International Airport (LAS) – beginning Oct. 7 with one-way fares as low as $39.

Allegiant’s full network expansion announced this week includes 24 additional cities, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Springs and Austin among them.
