Allegiant Air is launching non-stop air service from four more U.S. mainland destinations to Honolulu and Maui in Hawaii.
The airline, a subsidiary of Allegiant Travel Company, has not yet revealed its flight schedules for and is not yet taking reservations for the new services to the two Hawaiian vacation destinations.
However, all five new services begin in mid-November, in time for the peak winter vacation season.
Allegiant Air had previously announced on April 10 that it was beginning service to Honolulu from Las Vegas McCarran International Airport (IATA code LAS) on June 29 and from Fresno Yosemite International Airport (FAT) in California on June 30.
Las Vegas-based Allegiant Air, which became the second U.S. carrier to charge extra fees for carry-on baggage, will operate all its Hawaii services with six Boeing 757-200s configured in single-class configuration and seating 217 passengers.
The carrier will offer introductory fares from $159 one-way, including government taxes and fees but not baggage and optional fees, from Honolulu International Airport (HNL) to Bellingham International Airport (BLI) in Washington from November 15.
Allegiant Air will launch service from Eugene Airport (EUG in Oregon to Honolulu on November 17 with introductory fares from $179 each way, not including baggage and optional fees.
On the same day it will also begin serving Honolulu from Santa Maria Public Airport (SMX) in California, offering introductory fares from $199 each way, again not including baggage and optional fees.
Then, on November 18, Allegiant Air will launch service from Stockton Metropolitan Airport (SCK) in California, with introductory one-way fares from $199, not including baggage and other, optional fees.
On November 14, Allegiant Air will begin service between Bellingham and Kahului Airport (OGG) on Maui with introductory fares from $199 one-way, including government taxes and fees but not baggage and optional fees.
The introductory one-way fares must be purchased by May 21, for travel by January 15, 2013. Prices include passenger facilities charges, segment tax and September 11th security fee of up to $10.80 per segment. A segment is one take-off and one landing.
A so-called “convenience fee” of $10 per segment, per passenger is included in the introductory one-way fare. A fee of $14.99 per segment, will apply when purchased through Allegiant call centers. Purchases made at any Allegiant airport ticket office will not incur a convenience or call center fee.
Baggage fees of up to $35 per bag, per segment will apply to one carry-on and the first two checked bags. Additional higher fees will apply for three or more checked bags.
“We are pleased to expand our presence in the islands with non-stop service to Maui and additional non-stop service to Honolulu from four more of our existing markets,” says Andrew Levy, Allegiant Travel Company’s president. “This is especially exciting because it comes shortly after announcing initial service to Hawaii from Las Vegas and Fresno.”
Founded in 1997, Allegiant became a public company in December 2006 under the Allegiant Travel Company name.
