Coming off a record year, Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport is preparing to welcome even more passengers with the announcement Tuesday of four new Allegiant Air nonstop routes from Allentown, Pa.; Grand Rapids, Mich,; Niagara Falls, N.Y.; and Portsmouth, N.H.
To accompany the announcement, Allegiant said it is offering fares on three of the routes as low as $49 each way.
“We’re excited to announce yet another expansion in Savannah,” said Drew Wells, Allegiant’s vice president of planning and revenue.
“We’re sure folks in Allentown, Grand Rapids, Niagara Falls and Portsmouth will be thrilled to take advantage of these convenient, ultra-low-cost, nonstop flights to enjoy the historic charm of Savannah and the sunny shores of Hilton Head.”
The new seasonal routes to Savannah/Hilton Head include:
• Grand Rapids via Gerald R. Ford International Airport (GRR), beginning June 7 with fares as low as $49 each way.
• Niagara Falls via Niagara Falls International Airport (IAG), beginning June 7 with fares as low as $49 each way.

“Allegiant continues to be a great partner to the airport and the region. We’re happy to see the momentum of Allegiant’s success continue,” said Greg Kelly, executive director of the Savannah Airport Commission.
“It affords several new opportunities for travelers from the new destinations to visit and enjoy the hospitality of the Savannah and Hilton Head Island region.”
The nonstop routes will operate twice-weekly and are expected to bring nearly 6,500 passengers to the area annually. Flight days, times and the lowest fares can be found only at Allegiant.com.
“We are very pleased with the success that Allegiant has achieved at SAV,” said Steve Green, chairman of the Savannah Airport Commission.
“The airport has seen significant growth since Allegiant’s return to this market. The addition of four new cities will bring even more travelers to our region and we look forward to continued growth and success of this airline at SAV.”
Allegiant said it offers a unique option to Savannah-bound travelers with low base airfare and savings on rental cars and hotels.
