Las Vegas, Nevada, USA – May 8, 2013: Allegiant Air Boeing 757 airliner taking off from McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas.
Allegiant Air celebrated its first nonstop flight from San Diego International Airport (SAN) to Provo, Utah via Provo Municipal Airport (PVU). Flights operate two times weekly on Thursdays and Sundays and is the only service between the two cities.
“The addition of Provo as a new city accessible from SAN on Allegiant will benefit our region as visitors from Utah will have an opportunity to visit our beaches, experience our amusement parks, and enjoy our culturally diverse restaurant offerings,” said Kimberly Becker, San Diego County Regional Airport Authority President & CEO. “San Diegans looking to partake in winter sports and outdoor recreation will appreciate the easy nonstop flight up north. Thank you Allegiant, for continuing to add unique destinations from SAN.”
Provo is about 45 miles south of Salt Lake City, situated in the heart of the larger Utah valley. It’s bounded on the east by the Wasatch Front mountain peaks and on the west by Utah Lake. Its location makes it easy to access national parks and canyons, with bountiful ski resorts, hiking, fishing, watersports, and camping opportunities.
With the addition of the new Provo route, Allegiant now offers nonstop service to 11 destinations making the airline third out of all carriers to offer the most routes from SAN. Earlier this year, Allegiant began year-round nonstop service to Austin, Texas, and seasonal nonstop service to Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
