Allegiant Air (G4, Las Vegas Harry Reid) has announced plans to base four aircraft out of Provo, UT, starting on November 16, 2022.

The leisure-focused low-cost carrier said it would hire 157 staff members locally and launch new routes from the airport which it will disclose at a later point.

"Allegiant understands the value of Provo Airport. Building on the success of eight existing routes at Provo, our investment means having locally-based aircraft and crews, opening the door for future new destination opportunities for residents," Vice-President (Government Affairs) Keith Hansen said.

Allegiant Air is currently the only airline that operates scheduled flights out of Provo. It has served the city since 2013 and currently connects it directly with Phoenix Williams Gateway, Houston Hobby, Phoenix Sky Harbor, St. Petersburg/Clearwater, Austin Bergstrom Int'l, and Santa Ana, CA, the ch-aviation schedules module shows. Seasonally it also flies to Los Angeles Int'l and Palm Springs Int'l.

Provo is located some 70 kilometres south of Salt Lake City. It is Utah's second-busiest airport (on par with St. George), although the state's traffic is heavily dominated by the capital gateway, which accounts for 96.7% of all Utah capacity.
