Las Vegas-based Allegiant Air to add Boise flights.

Allegiant Air, known for its low cost direct flights, will now fly out of Boise.  The airline announced new flights from Boise to Las Vegas starting in October and Boise to Honolulu beginning in February.

Here’s the press release from Allegiant:

Allegiant (NASDAQ: ALGT) announces new, nonstop jet service between Boise, Idaho and Honolulu beginning February 10, 2013, and Las Vegas beginning October 26, 2012. To celebrate, the carrier will offer introductory fares to Honolulu for as low as $180.00* one way and fares to Las Vegas as low as $62.00* one way, including taxes and fees. Flights and vacation packages are available for booking through April 16, 2013.

“We are pleased to bring new affordable and convenient travel options to Boise,” said Andrew C. Levy, Allegiant Travel Company President. “We are confident area residents will appreciate the convenience of flying nonstop to these world class vacation destinations and the value of bundling their air, hotel and car rental reservation together.”

Airport Director, Rebecca Hupp commented, “We are extremely pleased Allegiant has selected Boise as one of their new markets for Hawaii service. The introduction of Honolulu service and Allegiant service to Las Vegas will complement the other existing air service in our market. Throughout the travel industry Allegiant is well known and respected for their vacation packages and affordable prices. This will be a terrific option for Boise passengers looking for a great getaway.” – Allegiant Air Press Release

Allegiant currently operates flights out of Idaho Falls.

As StateImpact has reported, flights in and out of Boise have been cut over the last couple of years.  And airfares have increased faster than the national average.
