Allegiant Air lays groundwork to begin international flights

U.S. – Discount carrier Allegiant Air is going international, with plans to begin service to Mexico.

The Las Vegas-based airline on Monday filed an application with the U.S. Department of Transportation for authority to offer Mexico flights.

Allegiant, which specializes in cheap nonstop flights to warm-weather vacation destinations from smaller cities, did not disclose which destination cities it will fly to in Mexico or from which U.S. airports. The airline also did not provide a timetable for beginning service.

 “Offering service to Mexico will provide a whole new array of options for travelers to discover world-class destinations that may have been previously out of reach,” Allegiant CEO Maury Gallagher stated in a statement.
