Allegiant adds seasonal service to Midwest city

Las Vegas-based Allegiant Air is starting up its seasonal service to the St. Louis area Friday with twice-weekly flights through the spring and summer.

The airline will fly Mondays and Fridays to MidAmerica St. Louis Airport in Belleville, Illinois, leaving Harry Reid International Airport at 6:40 a.m., and returning from St. Louis at 12:40 p.m., on an approximately three-hour nonstop flight.

The new service is part of Allegiant’s seasonal expansion in 23 cities around the country.

“Anticipating a surge in travel demand, we are excited to bring back these perfectly-timed seasonal routes to fly passengers to some of our network’s most popular destinations across the country,” Drew Wells, Allegiant’s chief revenue officer, said in a release. “Allegiant’s affordable, all-nonstop flights allow customers to spend more time in their destination without the hassle of managing layovers or connections.”
