Allegiant Air to offer introductory fare for some flights

March 23, 2012|By HEATHER KEELS | heather.keels@herald-mail.com

Allegiant Air’s $59.99 introductory fare from Hagerstown to Orlando is only for some flights, airline spokeswoman Jessica Wheeler said Friday.

In his announcement Thursday that Allegiant would offer twice-weekly flights between Hagerstown Regional Airport and Orlando starting May 25, Allegiant Manager of Airports Eric Fletcher announced an “introductory fare of $59.99 each way.”

The company news release issued at the time of the announcement said the rate is “not available on all flights” and must be purchased by April 12 for travel by Nov. 13.

In fact, prices listed on Allegiant Air’s booking website Friday included some lower than the advertised price and some higher, ranging from $38.29 to $81.29.

Of the 42 available flights, more than half were $55.49, but some — mostly Friday flights in August and those in November — were $71.29, and a few of the earliest dates were $49.29.

“We advertise the lowest fare that we have the most inventory of,” Wheeler said.

Tickets are available from allegiant.com, from the ticket counter at Hagerstown Regional Airport on Mondays and Fridays from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., or by calling 702-505-8888.

A fee of $14.99 per segment is applied to purchases through Allegiant call centers, the release said.
