SAN DIEGO (CNS) – Allegiant Air Thursday began seasonal nonstop service from San Diego International Airport to Mesa, Arizona via Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport and will begin seasonal nonstop service to Kalispell, Montana via Glacier Park International Airport and Pasco, Washington via Tri-Cities Airport Friday.

Flights to all three destinations will be offered until August 16.

Beginning June 3, Allegiant Air will offer nonstop service to Bozeman, Montana via Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport through August 15. Beginning July 1, Allegiant Air will offer nonstop service to Des Moines, Iowa via Des Moines International Airport through August 15.

“We appreciate Allegiant adding seasonal service just in time for the summer travel season,” said Kimberly Becker, president and CEO of the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority. “These new destinations are gateways to recreational areas like Tonto National Forest, Glacier National Park, the Columbia Valley wine country and Yellowstone National Park.

“While many San Diegans may want to explore these hidden gems, we welcome those coming to San Diego to take advantage of our sun, beaches, attractions and dining offerings,” Becker said.

The new routes join other seasonal nonstop flights already offered by Allegiant Air to Montana, Oregon, Nevada, Idaho and Texas.

Alaska Airlines is now offering daily nonstop service from San Diego International Airport to New York via John F. Kennedy International Airport and seasonal nonstop service to Bozeman, Montana, via Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport.

Southwest Airlines said it would start offering more nonstop flights between Hawaii and San Diego beginning in June.
