Yesterday, Allegiant Airlines announced 3 new cities and 10 new nonstop routes set to begin this fall. The newest cities on Allegiant's route map include Redmond (RDM), State College (SCE), and Traverse City (TVC). New routes were also announced between existing cities and intro fares are as low as $98 roundtrip.
Allegiant Adds 3 New Cities and 10 New Routes
In a press release, vice president of planning and revenue Drew Wells said, "We know customers will love having our convenient, friendly service out of their hometown airport to great destinations across the country."
The new routes begin in October and intro fares are available from the service start date through mid-February, excluding peak holiday travel. Typical for Allegiant, these routes are all only flown twice per week and each route operates on different days of the week. Click on the fare details for more booking info.
Intro fares must be booked by June 19, 2019.
New nonstop service on Allegiant Starting in October 2019

Mondays / Fridays, starting October 4, 2019.
Wednesdays / Saturdays, starting October 9 and 16, 2019, respectively.
Sundays / Thursdays, starting October 17, 2019.

Mondays / Fridays, starting October 18, 2019.
All fares work in the reverse direction as well.
These fares only include one small personal item. Carry-on bag fees start at $18-$25 each way when purchased during the initial booking. Checked bag fees start at $20-$35 each way. These fees are higher after booking and at the airport.
Seats will be assigned at random upon check-in for these prices. You may pay a fee to choose a specific seat.
Allegiant mainly flies from smaller cities to leisure markets around the U.S. Since there are extra fees for just about everything, you may find better deals from larger nearby airports on other airlines, but Allegiant often has the only nonstop service on its routes.
Searching on Allegiant's website, I found flights departing Grand Rapids GRR on Thursday, December 5, returning from New Orleans MSY on Sunday, December 8, for $98 roundtrip.
