Allegiant is adding three new cities to its route map, part of 13-route expansion announced Tuesday.

The expansion to Jackson Hole, Wyoming; Key West Florida; and Portland, Oregon, pushes the budget carrier into new outdoor-oriented destinations that have proven popular with leisure travelers during the pandemic.

“Today, travelers are seeking destinations that allow them the chance to recreate in a safe way, usually outdoors,” Drew Wells, Allegiant’s vice president of revenue and planning, said in a statement. “The three cities we’re adding to our network … are gateways to some of the United States’ most scenic destinations, including national parks and other outdoor attractions that are in high demand.”

Jackson Hole sits within the Grand Teton National Park and is also just a two-hour drive from Yellowstone National Park. Allegiant spokesperson Hilarie Grey tells TPG that Jackson Hole “has been a long-requested destination” among its customer base.

Elsewhere, Key West is a well-known destination in the Florida Keys while Portland is within driving distance of several notable recreation areas, including the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area and the Mount Hood National Forest.

One interesting side note in Allegiant’s new routes is the demand the airline say it’s seeing from Las Vegas. Normally, the city – home to Allegiant’s headquarters and its largest base – is the primarily place customers are looking to travel to.

But, during the pandemic, Allegiant has seen demand jump from Las Vegas to its outdoor-oriented destinations. To Kalispell in Montana – near Glacier National Park – Allegiant says traffic from Las Vegas jumped 16% in 2020 compared to the same period in 2019. To Bozeman, Montana – near Yellowstone and other outdoor areas – traffic from Las Vegas jumped 8%.

“We believe that Jackson Hole will have a similar appeal for locals in Las Vegas and other cities that would typically be the destination in our equation,” Grey said in an email to TPG.

Beyond the three new cities and 13 new routes announced on Tuesday, Allegiant revealed new plans for eight routes that were announced in January but were since delayed because of the pandemic.
