It may be cold and dreary in Austin, but spring travel season is right around the corner, and one airline is ensuring locals can jet off to some sunny locales — for some dazzlingly low fares — starting this April.
Las Vegas-based low-cost carrier Allegiant announced Tuesday, February 1 that it will begin offering new nonstop routes through Austin-Bergstrom International Airport this spring, with one-way fares as low as $49.
The new nonstop routes from ABIA will fly to Sarasota, Florida, via Sarasota Bradenton International Airport beginning April 14; to San Diego via San Diego International Airport beginning April 20; and to Washington, D.C., via Dulles International Airport beginning April 21.
All three routes qualify for the one-way fare rate of $49, though seats and dates are limited and Allegiant notes that those fares may not be available on all flights. In order to cash in on the cheap one-way fares, travelers must purchase their tickets by Wednesday, February 2 for travel by November 3, 2022.
The Austin routes are among Allegiant’s growing roster of nonstop flights through ABIA, with the airline announcing last April that it was investing $75 million in the airport to increase its Austin presence, routes, and flights.
“These new routes will grow our presence in Austin, where we recently opened a base, while connecting travelers in some of the smaller cities we serve to several popular vacation destinations,” says Drew Wells, Allegiant’s senior vice president of revenue and planning, via a February 1 release.
As the initial part of that ramp up, Allegiant announced last June it was adding seven new nonstop flights serving Austin, including to Amarillo; Louisville, Kentucky; Orange County, California; Provo, Utah; Sioux Falls, South Dakota; Springfield, Missouri; and Tulsa, Oklahoma.
