Allegiant Air will offer flights for the first time from St. George Regional Airport in southwest Utah, officials with the Las Vegas-based budget carrier announced this week.
Allegiant is scheduled to launch seasonal service between St. George and Phoenix/Mesa Gateway Airport starting Nov. 9, with tickets starting at $49 one way. The direct flights will be offered twice a week aboard Airbus A319 and 320 jetliners.
The move is part of a larger strategy by Allegiant to launch flights for the first time from airports in Tucson, Arizona, in November and from Albany, New York, in December.
