Allegiant Announces New Nonstop Flights From CVG to NYC

Allegiant recently announced new, nonstop flights to New York City via Newark Liberty International Airport from Cincinnati.

In conjunction with the new route that will launch just in time for the holiday travel season, the company is celebrating with a "Christmas in July" Facebook sweepstakes to give away seats on the route's inaugural flight. Allegiant is offering one-way fares on the new route for as low as $39.

"We're very excited to continue growing at CVG and provide an exciting new destination for local travelers," said Jude Bricker, Allegiant chief operating officer. "We know that a low-cost, nonstop flight option to New York City from CVG is something the community has been asking for, and these flights will launch right in time for the holiday travel season."

The new year-round flights will operate four times weekly and will fly nonstop between Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport. Flights begin November 16, 2016.

The new route will add to Allegiant's current service from CVG 13 destinations including Austin, Las Vegas, Phoenix/Mesa, New Orleans, Savannah/Hilton Head, Myrtle Beach, Washington D.C. and six cities in Florida including Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Orlando/Sanford, Punta Gorda, St. Pete/Clearwater and Destin/Fort Walton Beach.

Additionally, Allegiant has also launched its "Christmas in July" sweepstakes to provide 12 lucky winners with seats on the inaugural flight from Cincinnati to New York City for themselves and a guest. Local travelers who would like to enter to win can do so on Allegiant's Facebook page at Facebook.com/Allegiant. The "Christmas in July" sweepstakes is part of Allegiant's ongoing $1 Million Summer, a promotion in which the company is giving away $1 million in airfare throughout the summer. 

"Having a low-cost carrier operate from CVG to New York City is a first for the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky region," said Candace McGraw, chief executive officer, CVG. "Allegiant's growth has been tremendous and we're proud they've chosen CVG as a launch market for their first New York City area service. Newark becomes Allegiant's 14th non-stop destination on a year-round or seasonal basis from CVG."

Allegiant offers a unique travel option to Cincinnati travelers. Focusing on low-cost leisure travel, the company provides customers with low base fares averaging nearly half of the cost of the average domestic round-trip fare. Allegiant's innovative business model has allowed the company to grow from one aircraft and one route just over a decade ago, to providing convenient, affordable service in over 100 communities nationwide.
