As the travel industry rebounds, flying keeps getting easier at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, where seven new nonstop flights from Allegiant Airlines have been added.

The new routes include:

  • Amarillo, Texas
  • Louisville, Kentucky
  • Orange County, California
  • Provo, Utah
  • Sioux Falls, South Dakota
  • Springfield, Missouri
  • Tulsa, Oklahoma

The flights will start in November out of the expanded South Terminal. One-way tickets are starting as low as $39 for tickets purchased by today, June 30.

Airlines have been expanding their reach at ABIA, where more nonstop direct flights have been added across multiple airlines. Allegiant already had 13 direct flights out of Austin.

Allegiant announced that it will establish a new $75 million base at ABIA's South Terminal in April, creating 89 jobs and housing three airplanes. It is scheduled to open in mid-November.

"Allegiant's continued commitment to the Austin market is a welcome expansion and great addition to the South Terminal's core offering: greater access to low-cost airfare in a convenient terminal with affordable, on-site parking and exceptional amenities," said Jeff Pearse, CEO of LoneStar Airport Holdings LLC. "We are eager to continue supporting Allegiant's growing presence in Central Texas."
