Low-cost carrier Allegiant, which has been aggressively expanding in Indianapolis, on Tuesday morning announced it is launching Indianapolis International Airport’s only nonstop service to Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport.
The seasonal flights will operate twice weekly and will begin April 8. The company is debuting the route with one-way promotional fares as low as $39.
Las Vegas-based Allegiant launched service
in Indianapolis in February 2015. It now offers nonstop flights to Las Vegas, New Orleans and Myrtle Beach, as well as four destinations in Florida: Fort Lauderdale, Orlando/Sanford, Punta Gorda/Fort Myers and St. Petersburg/Clearwater.
Allegiant, founded just over a decade ago, has been on a growth tear nationally, fueled by base fares it says are roughly half those charged by rival airlines. The carrier, which began with a single plane flying one route, now serves more than 100 U.S. communities.
Indianapolis International Airport has enjoyed success adding nonstop flights in recent years. IBJ reported in July that the airport had gained 22 nonstop flights over the prior year, boosting the number to 41.
