Mesa, AZ (PRWEB) October 23, 2008
Low-cost airline Allegiant Air (http://www.allegiantair.com) is gearing up for a busy winter vacation season adding five new markets to its already impressive roster of small cities across America. Allegiant Air is the only commercial carrier flying into Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport (http://www.phxmesagateway.org), servicing the east Phoenix metropolitan area including Chandler, Mesa and Tempe (http://www.visitsunnyaz.com).
Beginning this October, Allegiant Air will provide the only non-stop, low-cost winter vacation service to the following new cities out of Mesa, Arizona: Eugene, Medford and Redmond/Bend, OR; Springfield, MO; Bismarck, ND and Great Falls, MT. Service is already offered in Cedar Rapids, IA; Sioux Falls and Rapid City, SD; Missoula, and Billings, MT; Bellingham, WA; and Fargo, ND. Seasonal service will also resume to Peoria and Chicago/Rockford, IL for this winter vacation season.
Allegiant Air, known for its low fares and frequent specials, enables visitors to save on the cost of travel to sunny Arizona and helps alleviate winter vacation financial stress.
"Allegiant Air's goal is to sell sunshine when the rest of the country is under a layer of snow and ice," said Robert Brinton, president & CEO of the Mesa Convention & Visitors Bureau. "With the new service, those undecided visitors seeking a winter vacation can do so much easier and maximize the value of their sunny Arizona visit by flying Allegiant Air."
To handle the increase in air traffic, Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport is undergoing an expansion bringing the 24,000-square-foot terminal to 34,000 square feet with the addition of an annex. The airport boasts three expansive runways, parking and on-site rental car service making it a convenient alternative for passengers flying in and out of sunny Arizona, especially for those vacationing in the Arizona East Valley communities of Chandler, Mesa and Tempe.
