Allegiant Airlines adds new direct flights to Austin from 2 Florida airports

The routes will fly to and from Punta Gorda and Palm Beach, Fla. Fares are as low as $49.

AUSTIN, Texas — Allegiant Airlines is adding nonstop flights to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport from Punta Gorda and Palm Beach, Fla. Fares for both flights are as low as $49.

Direct flights to and from Punta Gorda Airport are available starting on Nov. 18, and flights to Palm Beach International Airport begin on Nov. 19. The new routes are two of 22 in Allegiant’s most recent expansion.  

In a press release, Allegiant said the expansion is “just in time to plan winter holiday getaways.” However, seats and dates are limited and the lowest fares are not available for all flights

“A hallmark of Allegiant’s service is to connect travelers to warmer destinations where they can enjoy a variety of outdoor leisure activities,” Drew Wells, Allegiant’s senior vice president of revenue and network planning, said in a press release. “And we’ve continued that tradition with this expansion by giving customers more affordable, nonstop options to visit Florida and Texas during the fall and winter seasons.”

Allegiant announced seven new direct flights to Austin in June from airports in cities including Amarillo, Texas, Orange County, Calif., Provo, Utah and Tulsa, Okla.

Earlier in 2021, the airline announced it would make Austin’s airport a base for its airline operations, bringing about 90 full-time jobs to the area. In July, the airport announced it will close the South Terminal where Allegiant currently operates.

Allegiant is still set to launch operations in Austin in November.
