Allegiant Air adds new warm-weather destinations from Knoxville

Allegiant Air is gearing up for the busy winter travel season with 24 new nonstop routes that will take travelers from smaller cities to popular warm-weather destinations.

One of them is from Knoxville's McGhee Tyson Airport to Palm Beach, Florida. Year-round service begins Nov. 15 with fares starting at $59.

Another is from Knoxville to Sarasota, Florida (Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport). Year-round to that destination service begins Nov. 21 with fares starting at $59.

The new flights, which can be booked on the airline's website, will generally be offered twice a week. Some flights are seasonal, others will operate year round. Don't expect the introductory fares to be available for travel around Thanksgiving, Christmas or other peak travel periods.

Allegiant, like fellow discounters Spirit and Frontier, charges low base fares plus fees for "extras,'' including a seat assignment, carry-on or checked bag, in-flight drinks and food and more.
