New air service to Phoenix from Manhattan will begin Nov. 7, according to a press release from Allegiant, the company providing the flights.
The company will provide nonstop commercial jet service to and from Manhattan Regional Airport and Phoenix-Mesa Gateway airport twice weekly.
“We are pleased to bring affordable and convenient travel options to the residents of Manhattan and North Central Kansas,” said Andrew Levy, Allegiant Travel Company president, in the release. “We are confident that Manhattan and the surrounding communities will appreciate the convenience of flying nonstop to Phoenix and the value of bundling their air, hotel and car rental reservation together through us.”
The company is offering $99 fares on the flights as an introductory special.
Manhattan will be the 99th city served by Allegiant.
“This is great news for the regional leisure and business travelers that will be able to conveniently use the Manhattan Regional Airport with nonstop service to Phoenix,” said Manhattan Mayor John Matta in the release. “The new service demonstrates the success and viability of our region.”
