Allegiant Announces Nonstop, Low-Cost Travel Service Between Minot And Phoenix-Mesa

MINOT, N.D., Jan. 11, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Allegiant (Nasdaq:ALGT) today announces new, nonstop travel service between Minot, N.D., and Phoenix-Mesa will begin March 3. The company, known for its exceptional travel deals, will introduce the new service to Magic City residents with fares as low as $89.99* one-way.

"We're pleased to announce yet another affordable and convenient way for our customers to get away," Andrew C. Levy, Allegiant Travel Company President, said. "We are confident the greater Minot area will appreciate the value of flying nonstop to Arizona and the great deals we offer on hotels and car rentals."

"I want to thank Allegiant for recognizing the opportunity to bring direct air service from Minot to Mesa," Mayor Curt Zimbelman, said. "I know the people of this region appreciate the nonstop, low-cost flights and will support the service. 2010 was a banner year for the airport and this will help to make 2011 another great year."

"This is a great announcement for Minot and one many people will be excited about," said Wendy Howe, Executive Director of the Minot Convention and Visitors Bureau.  "Phoenix-Mesa was determined as one of the top destinations for people flying out of Minot and I know this route will be a great benefit to both business and leisure travelers."

"We are pleased Allegiant has the confidence in this region to expand air service so quickly to a highly desired market," Andy Solsvig, Minot Airport Director, said.  "The community and regional support for our current air service has been outstanding!  Please continue to support MOT and our new destination market Phoenix-Mesa."  

The new flights will operate twice weekly between the Minot International Airport (MOT) and Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport (IWA) with service Thursday and Sunday. Flights will depart Minot at 6:35 p.m. arriving in Phoenix-Mesa at 8:25 p.m. Flights leaving Phoenix-Mesa will depart at 2:10 p.m. arriving in Minot at 5:55 p.m. (all flight times are local). The company began nonstop service to Las Vegas Oct. 22, 2010. 

With breathtaking scenery, endless sun, unmatched resorts and miles of world-class golf courses, Phoenix-Mesa is a gateway to all that Arizona has to offer, including the Grand Canyon, Scottsdale, Tempe and Sedona. Not only is the area considered "The Golf Capital of the World," but also the "Resort Capital of the World," with numerous four- and five-diamond resorts. These premier resort communities feature shopping, dining, spa, activities and luxury accommodations for the perfect getaway to Arizona's unique Southwestern hospitality.
