Allegiant Air, which will debut the flight in August, has been rapidly expanding its flights out of San Diego, with several new destinations added within the last year.

In its continued expansion of service out of San Diego, Allegiant Air announced it it is adding a year-round nonstop flight to Provo, Utah, beginning Aug. 18.

The new flight will operate two times weekly, on Thursdays and Sundays, and will mark the first nonstop service to the Utah destination from San Diego International Airport.

“We welcome this new route between our two cities on Allegiant Air,” said Kimberly Becker, San Diego County Regional Airport Authority president and CEO. “For Southern California travelers looking for an alternative to the greater Salt Lake City area, Provo serves as a gateway to many of the state’s key attractions and recreation. We appreciate Allegiant Air’s continued investment and new route at SAN.”

Located 45 miles south of Salt Lake City, the city has easy access to national parks, canyons and ski resorts, and the surrounding area is popular for vacationers interested in hiking, fishing, water sports, and camping.

The new flight comes on the heels of added routes that Allegiant announced earlier this year to
Austin, Texas, and Sioux Falls, S.D. The Austin flight began last month and the seasonal Sioux Falls service debuts May 19 and runs through Aug. 12.

And last year the airline debuted several new flights to destinations in Montana, Washington, Iowa and Arizona.

With the addition of the new Provo route, Allegiant now offers nonstop service to 12 destinations, making the airline third out of all carriers to offer the most routes from San Diego.
