The new nonstop destination on the budget carrier will start on November 19th – and run through February 7th. The airline will fly twice each week – on Thursday and Sunday.

The airline said fares will start at $49 for a one-way ticket.

“The Boise Airport is thrilled that Allegiant Air will bring nonstop service to Palm Springs,” Boise Airport Director Rebecca Hupp said. “The Boise community has a strong link and propensity to travel to California markets. Combining that demand with Allegiant’s affordable and convenient business model creates accessible transportation for everyone in our community.”

The new route will bump BOI’s selection of nonstop destinations to 19.

Changes at BOI

Several adjustments went into effect at the airport this year. A long-planned multi-year revamp was scaled back, and a new flight to a long-sought eastern time zone destination was called off.

Other flight options will go away as well. Southwest Airlines stopped flying to Spokane direct from Boise, and the flight will not return for now according to Cranky Flier. The move leaves just Alaska Airlines flying direct between the two cities.

Some projects are moving forward, including a new gate at the airport to service larger Alaska planes.

Overall, the airport has seen a drastic decrease in passenger traffic in the wake of COVID-19.
