· Allegiant Air:
We can’t keep up with Allegiant Air and their ridiculously low fares. This week they’re busy announcing new options to Las Vegas from Moline/Quad Cities, Illinois. Service will begin on October 14, and the flights will start at about $45 each way. The flights will run just twice a week on Thursdays and Sundays, but that’s just enough time to get your fix of Sin City. If you want the introductory deal just be sure to book before September 8.
We always get a kick out of where the Airbus A380 is headed, and it looks like the super jumbo is now making its way to Hong Kong. Emirates is sending its biggest and baddest plane to Hong Kong via Bangkok beginning on October 1. If that’s not in your travel plans, as a reminder, the restoration of Dubai to JFK service aboard the big plane starts at the end of October. Finally, nonstop flights to Manchester start up on September 1.
· Frontier Airlines:
It’s not really a new route as it never went away, but Frontier Airlines is keeping its flights to and from Aspen. Originally the airline was getting rid of its turboprop jets, but they decided to keep a few around to whisk passengers from Denver to the slopes. The flights should stick around indefinitely, but we wonder if they’ll be the first to go if the airline ever needs to save a few bucks. Regardless, we’ll meet you on the mountain.
