Travel Industry Welcomes Allegiant Air's Expansion in 10 New Cities to Provide Discount Flights to Florida
Miami, FL, August 31, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- The travel industry has welcomed the announcement by Allegiant Air that it is opening up service in 10 new locations, bringing its total to 99 airports, more than any other carrier in the US.
"This is great news," says Yaz Stone, administrator of the popular singles travel website http://holidaysforsinglepeople.org, "because Allegiant Air caters for under-served populations in the country, not just the big cities like New York, Chicago, et cetera. For a businessman like myself who tries to open up travel opportunities for as many groups as possible, I welcome this wholeheartedly."
Allegiant Air, though based in Las Vegas, is now mainly concentrating on offering discount flights to Florida, along with vacation options such as car rentals, hotels, and so forth.
The business model of Allegiant Air is different from its rivals in that it focuses on providing services to domestic travellers from smaller cities and suburban areas, whose airports are not as congested and charge smaller airport fees.
The ten new cities that Allegiant Air will be serving are Portsmouth, N.H.; Islip, N.Y.; New Windsor, N.Y.; Charlottesville, Va.; Clarksburg W. Va.; Concord, N.C.; Oklahoma City; Tulsa, Okla.; Syracuse, N.Y. and Manhattan, Kan.
"More leisure opportunities and choices need to be made more easily available to everyone, and Allegiant Air is a leader in this respect," observes Mr. Stone. "Florida is one of the more popular places that my international clients prefer to visit for holiday."
