Allegiant Airlines plans to start offering cheap flights from Washington State to Hawaii in an attempt to lure Canadians across the border to fly to the sunny destination. The flights will start in mid-November and will fly twice per week out of Bellingham and fly to the popular Hawaiian destinations. Prices will start at $159 US for a one-way flight to Honolulu International Airport and $199 US to Maui’s Kahului Airport.
In addition to the cheap flights to Hawaii, Allegiant is also planning to build a 9000-square-foot building at the Bellingham airport, which will be used also by Frontier Airlines. Frontier’s service will compliment the service offered by Allegiant by providing connecting flights to other major US destinations via Denver. Andrew C. Levy, president of Allegiant, said that the airline is hoping to attract both American and Canadian customers as those from British Columbia make up over half of the customers in Bellingham.
