The Las Vegas-based budget airline plans to start nonstop service from Portland, Oregon, in April and Key West, Florida, and Jackson Hole, Wyoming, in June.
The cities were selected because they are gateways to outdoor recreation, which travelers have flocked to during the COVID-19 pandemic, Allegiant spokeswoman Hilarie Grey said.
Allegiant, which typically caters to passengers headed from smaller cities and towns to major vacation destinations like Las Vegas; Phoenix; Florida; and Nashville, Tennessee, has seen a spike in interest from travelers in those major destinations seeking outdoor vacations, she said. Bookings from Las Vegas to Montana are up significantly, she said. The airline expects similar demand for flights between Las Vegas and Phoenix and Jackson Hole, she said.
