Allegiant is adding nearly three-dozen seasonal and short-term new routes as it looks to capture more of the leisure travelers who have made up the bulk of those still flying during the pandemic.

In addition to the 34 nonstop routes that Allegiant is announcing Tuesday, there are nine temporary routes to Rapid City, South Dakota, aimed at travelers heading to the state’s famed Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. All nine of those routes routes will operate twice weekly for two weeks around the early-August event.

The remaining 34 routes will operate on a more-typical seasonal basis.

San Diego was Allegiant’s biggest winner among those, landing routes to five destinations that the carrier does not currently serve from the city. Three other Allegiant bases – Los Angeles, Nashville and Portland, Oregon – picked up four new routes.

In total, 12 Allegiant cities picked up at least two new routes in the latest announcement.

“As summer approaches, we expect a lot of pent-up demand for travel, especially for places where people can hike, fish, camp or visit the beach,” Drew Wells, Allegiant’s senior vice president of revenue, said in a statement. “With this expansion, we’ve added even more service to destinations known for their outdoor appeal. Now, with Allegiant’s low-cost, nonstop service, travelers will have easy, affordable access to the cities they want to visit.”

Allegiant’s new routes from Portland grow its schedule there even before the airline’s first flight from the city.

Allegiant announced just last month that it would add the city to its map, with its debut set to come in April. The four new routes announced Tuesday would give Allegiant a total of seven routes from the city. Key West, Florida — another city just added to the Allegiant route map — will also get a new route (Cincinnati).

Scroll down for a full list of Allegiant’s new routes.  All of the seasonal routes will operate twice weekly, except for Allegiant’s service between San Diego and Mesa-Phoenix (four times weekly). Some routes are listed twice, showing up once under each base getting new service.
