“These new routes will give Montana residents the chance to visit a city that serves as a gateway to some great outdoor experiences,” Drew Wells, Allegiant’s senior vice president of revenue, said in a release from Allegiant.
“We are fortunate to receive this excellent news during a time when air service is challenged globally,” Matthew Doucette, airport board chair of Missoula Airport, added in the release. “We are excited to see Allegiant add yet another nonstop destination to MSO. They have been a great community partner and will provide another low-cost alternative for our passengers."
In addition, Billings Logan International Airport (BIL) announced they Allegiant is adding a direct flight to Portland from Billings during the summer season from May 7 to Aug. 16. One-way tickets are starting at $59.
"Generally, Montana has seen much better passenger numbers this past year than the majority of the nation, with most Montana airports close to or above 50% of normal, while the rest of the country is averaging around 30%. This success is probably playing into the additional service for Billings," Kevin Ploehn, director of the BIL, said in a release from BIL.
