Allegiant, which is known for its low fares, is celebrating the inaugural with introductory fare sale for two days on each route with pricing as low as $70 one-way to Bellingham, Washington and $68 one-way to Provo, Utah.

“We’re excited to bring our style of ultra-low-cost travel to our newest Allegiant city, Tucson,” said Drew Wells, Allegiant vice president of planning and revenue. “We know our passengers will enjoy this new option to escape the cold just in time for holiday travel.”
Bonnie Allin, President and CEO of the Tucson Airport Authority, said “This is a big day for Tucson. For years our air service team has been asked specifically when Allegiant would come here and today our first passengers are taking advantage of their arrival. Not only are they bringing their brand of ultra-low fares, they’re bringing us service to two new cities. It’s all the more reason for southern Arizonans to support their hometown airport and local economy.”
