ROCKFORD — Allegiant will start flying from the Rockford airport to Los Angeles this summer.
The airline’s new route from the Chicago Rockford International Airport (RFD) to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) begins June 12. It’s the second new route the company is adding this year. Flights to Nashville start May 16.
Allegiant is offering introductory one-way fares for $79 and up if you book your flight by Tuesday for travel by Nov. 11.
You can check flight schedules and book at allegiantair.com.
The Rockford to LA flight is one of 11 new routes at different airports around the country that Allegiant announced in a news release on Monday.
“This expansion caters to passengers and communities we feel have been overlooked by other carriers,” Drew Wells, Allegiant’s chief revenue officer, said in a news release. “Allegiant’s unique business model, connecting small-to-medium sized cities to vacation destinations, creates accessible travel options not otherwise available in what we believe are underserved markets. We know travelers enjoy the convenience of nonstop flights departing from their neighborhood airport.”
Allegiant also flies out of Rockford to Las Vegas, Nevada, Phoenix, Arizona, Nashville (starting May 16) and four locations in Florida: Orlando, Tampa, Fort Myers and Sarasota.
