LOUISVILLE, KY (June 29, 2021) – Allegiant Air announced new, nonstop service to Texas’ Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) from Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport (SDF) beginning November 18, 2021, marking a new record high of 36 nonstop destinations for the airport.
The year-round flights will be offered twice weekly on Thursdays and Sundays, using an Airbus A320 with 186-seats. These flights provide convenient connectivity between bourbon country and the live music capital of the world. To celebrate, Allegiant is offering special, low-fares on their website.
“We are grateful that Allegiant sees the strength of the Louisville market and continues to invest in our community with service to Austin,” said Dan Mann, Executive Director of the Louisville Regional Airport Authority. “There is a lot of positive momentum at SDF as we continue to see robust air service growth and passenger traffic climbing to near record levels. Today’s announcement from Allegiant is another great win for area travelers and we appreciate their on-going commitment to the airport.”
“It’s certainly a very exciting time for Louisville as we continue to welcome pivotal airlift growth. By expanding nonstop service to Austin, travelers will conveniently be able to enjoy each city’s renowned music scene – along with the Urban Bourbon Trail cocktail and culinary experience in Louisville and world-famous barbecue in the Lone Star State,” said Cleo Battle, Chief Operating Officer of Louisville Tourism. “As Louisville’s air service expands, we continue to see airlines like Allegiant looking to invest in our city and capitalize on our upward momentum.
