Allegiant Air adds non-stop flight from Savannah to Newark

CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

Discount airline, Allegiant Air, announced a new non-stop flight out of Savannah, just in time for the holiday season.

Allegiant has been given final approval to begin offering service at Newark Liberty International Airport in November. Tickets are available now, and some for as low as $39 one-way.

Officials in Savannah say this new flight is key to increasing tourism in our area.

"The New York area is a very important market for us. We do see from our numbers that people that fly in tend to stay longer and spend more money. So anytime we can get someone from the Northeast U.S. to come down to Savannah, we know that is going to be a good visitor for us,” said Visit Savannah Vice President of Communications and Marketing, Jeremy Harvey.

This is just one of several new flights announced Tuesday by Allegiant. In total, the airline has added 12 new routes, and three new cities.
