Allegiant’s first flights from Redmond (RDM) will begin Oct. 3, when it launches service to Las Vegas (LAS). Phoenix-Mesa (AZA) flights begin a day later. Both routes will operate year-round with a twice-weekly schedule. Allegiant will become the fifth airline with regularly scheduled commercial service at Redmond, joining Alaska Airlines, American, Delta, Sun Country and United.

Service to Orlando-Sanford (SFB) begins Oct. 9 while St. Petersburg (PIE) flights begin Oct. 16. State College is currently served by the regional affiliates of American, Delta and United. Allegiant’s flights will be the longest on the schedule at the airport, surpassing American’s American Eagle service to Chicago O’Hare (ORD). Currently, the airport’s southern-most route is United’s United Express service to Washington Dulles (IAD).

Allegiant will add three new routes from Traverse City (TVC), connecting the Lake Michigan community to three Florida airports. Service to Orlando-Sanford (begins Oct. 9) and St. Petersburg (Oct. 16) is slated to be year-round while flights to Punta Gorda (PGD) will begin Oct. 17 and will be seasonal.
