Soon you'll be able to fly direct to Phoenix from Grand Junction.

Allegiant Airlines doesn't fly that many places. At least not from here and some of the flights are seasonal. Also too, Allegiant only offers flights on certain days of the week. From Grand Junction, your choices were only to Las Vegas or LA. That's about to change as earlier this week Allegiant announced year-round service to Phoenix. Those flights will operate twice a week, starting on Friday, April 5th.

We’ve seen quite a bit of demand of folks who are in the Grand Junction area traveling down to the Phoenix area for vacation but we also see an opportunity for folks from Phoenix to enjoy a getaway to the cool Colorado summer,” says Kim Shaefer, Director of Public Relations for Allegiant Airlines.

In celebration of the new flights, they're offering airfare for as low as $49 each way for a limited time. To take advantage of the deal you'll need to book your trip before January 16th. The new flights will accommodate between 177-186 passengers each trip. To book yours, just click HERE!

A weekend getaway to the Valley of the Sun sounds pretty good right now.
