Hebron, Ky. – Allegiant is making a significant expansion to its winter and spring flight schedule from CVG, the discount airline has announced.
Allegiant will open a new base of operations at CVG on Jan. 6, 2016. By February, Allegiant will operate 40 weekly flights to more nonstop destinations than any other low-cost carrier at the airport. This expanded schedule represents a 54 percent increase in flights over the same period in 2015.

- The return and upgrade of nonstop flights to Austin, Tex.and New Orleans to be operated year-round
- An early return of seasonal flights to Savannah / Hilton Headbeginning Feb. 18, 2016
- Nonstop flights to Las Vegasincreasing from two to five weekly flights
“We are excited that the strong demand from our region to these markets prompted Allegiant to bring these flights back earlier in the year and now establish them as year around destinations,” said Candace McGraw, CVG CEO.
The flights will be operated with a mix of Boeing 757, MD-80 and Airbus A320 family aircraft. When it opens in January, Allegiant’s CVG base will employ up to 90 pilots, flight attendants and airport service personnel.
Allegiant launched flights from CVG in February 2014 with just four weekly flights to two destinations. Since then, Cincinnati has become one of Allegiant’s fastest growing markets and its largest non-vacation destination. Allegiant operates nonstop flights to 11 seasonal and year-round destinations from Cincinnati, more than any other low-cost carrier.
