Allegiant Expands at Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport (SPI) with Nonstop Flights to Phoenix-Mesa, Arizona (AZA)

August 23, 2021

SPRINGFIELD, ILLINOIS – The Springfield Airport Authority is pleased to welcome Allegiant’s new, nonstop route from Springfield’s Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport (SPI) to Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport (AZA).  Flights are scheduled to begin November 18, 2021.  To celebrate, Allegiant is offering one-way fares on the new route as low as $59.*

“We are extremely pleased to have this new non-stop route. This speaks volumes about the confidence the airline has in our market during this unique time,” stated Frank J. Vala, Chair of the Springfield Airport Authority Board of Commissioners.  “We are grateful for Allegiant’s continued commitment to Springfield, and we thank them for providing our community with these convenient and affordable opportunities to travel; we look forward to great success.”

The route between Phoenix-Mesa (AZA) and Springfield (SPI) will generally operate twice weekly, year-round, on Airbus aircraft seating up to 186 passengers. Phoenix, also known as the “Valley of the Sun”, is home to world class golf courses, vacation resorts and countless family-oriented outdoor recreational opportunities in the beautiful desert and mountainous landscape.  The area is also home to Major League Baseball’s Spring Training Cactus League and is a short journey to the Grand Canyon.

“A hallmark of Allegiant’s service is to connect travelers to warmer destinations where they can enjoy a variety of outdoor leisure activities,” said Drew Wells, Allegiant’s senior vice president of revenue and network planning. “And we’ve continued that tradition with this expansion by giving customers more affordable, nonstop options to visit during the fall and winter seasons.”

“More than ever, travelers appreciate the convenience Allegiant provides by offering nonstop flights that get them from point-to-point, without the hassle of layovers or connections,” Wells said. They also like the convenient access through the smaller airports Allegiant serves in communities that have traditionally lacked commercial air service.

Allegiant currently offers twice weekly service to Ft. Myers/Punta Gorda, Florida (PGD) from Springfield (SPI). This new route compliments the leisure-oriented demand perfectly and allows travelers to continue to enjoy the Allegiant experience to a new destination from Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport.
