Allegiant Air has triggered something Grand Forks International Airport sees infrequently — an airfare advantage over Fargo.
The Web site airfarewatchdog.com lists roundtrip flights on Allegiant from Fargo to Las Vegas at $240 round-trip and $160 to Phoenix–Mesa compared with $160 and $100 respectively from Grand Forks.
Allegiant Air announced early this morning that it is offering $15 one-way fares on select flights to Los Angeles. The fares are a promotion available until 4 p.m. today in 13 markets, including Fargo.
Flights to Las Vegas average 1,200 passengers a month; airport officials look to add more westward flights from GFK Allegiant Air’s nonstop flights from Grand Forks to Las Vegas have operated at almost full capacity since starting the service Sept. 29, according to an airport official.
Allegiant Air announced Wednesday it will offer a non-stop flight between Fargo and Los Angeles starting in May. Grand Forks currently is working to land a direct flight to Phoenix with the same carrier.
