Allegiant Adds Flights for NFL Games

Las Vegas based Allegiant has added special, one-off flights for a variety of NFL games this season. Packers, Lions, Browns, Chiefs and Vikings fans will have the chance to hop aboard the ultra-low cost carrier (ULCC) this fall for several away games.

The airline is known for connecting underserved and secondary cities and routes across the country and these routes fit nicely into the airline’s existing network. They also exclusively offer nonstop flights which means you don’t have to worry about connections and layovers.

Allegiant’s Chief Revenue Officer, Drew Wells had this to say about the new routes:

Football fans are the heartbeat of the game, and we want to make sure they can feel every pulse-pounding moment live. These specialty flights have been extremely popular during past NFL seasons and we expect them to sell out in advance of the game.

Since Allegiant is an ULCC, don’t expect much in the way of amenities with your ticket. Things like seat assignments, baggage allowance and priority boarding can be purchased and bundled prior to departure for an additional fee.
