Allegiant Air's Facebook announced that they will be announcing a new city tomorrow. The city has a population of less than 100,000 people. For whatever they are making a big hoopla about it over on the Allegiant Facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/Allegiant?v=...&story_fbid=152755214738530&ref=mf

Anyone have any clue which city it will be, because the guesses on their page are all over the map!


I am PROUD to live in the greatest country on earth: The United States of America!

I'm willing to go out on a limb and say HUF-SFB. HUF almost got commercial air service again with Branson Air Express until they backtracked and chose IND instead.

SFB is a better choice than BKG for HUF anyway.

This is hard to even ponder when Google maps doesn't even show cities that small unless you zoom way in  

I am going to take a guess and say Cape Girardeau, MO. Or Belleville, Illinois (St. Louis Mid-America Airport)

Interesting...
I'd love for it to be LAF since that's where I live, but I'll guess Rochester, MN...even though Wikipedia says its population is 101,000 and YNGuins said less than 100k. Other big holes in their map are N. Texas, NH, and downstate IL...I'm sure they could find a nice sub-100,000-person town in any of those areas as well.

What about Niagara Falls Intl Airport? (NOT Buffalo-Niagara Intl).

Allegiant could tap into the lucrative Southern Ontario-Florida market and compete with Direct Air who is starting service. Allegiant is already targeting a few Canadian markets in Bellingham (Vancouver) and Plattsburgh (Montreal). The city of Niagara Falls, NY has a population of only 55,000.

Allegaint pulled out of Belleville. They cited terrible the cause as terrible performance. I don't see them going back there ever. Poor waste of even building an airport there.

Trenton's much closer to Philly than NYC - 34 miles to Philly, 63 to NYC (city centre, per Mapquest.)

That quibble notwithstanding, I think you're right that TTN would be a great choice for Allegiant.

They are going to Hawaii, but not until the 757s arrive and the ETOPS certification is completed - first half of 2011.

Well Hawaii isn't really a "secret" - anyone in the know is aware that they will start flying there sometime next year.

LOL, the city of Honolulu itself is almost 4 times larger than the "less than 100,000" figure, and if you take the metro area into account, you have over 9 times that amount. The city of Honolulu is actually home to more people than Cincinnati and Pittsburgh!

I'm sure you can come back to this thread tomorrow to see what it is. I would think it would be a market that his been relatively unaffected by the Great Recession, so I'll guess someplace in Montana (Helena or Butte) or maybe some place like MOT (Minot, ND).

I could be way off, but I would tend to think it'll be a place where they would fly to the Western "hubs" that have been growing lately - AZA/IWA (can't quite figure out what code they use), LAS, and even So Cal LAX/LGB - versus a small East Coast/Southern market to Florida, a place where they haven't been growing much.



Flying in the middle seat of coach is much better than not flying at all!

I'm going to Say MOT.

I know that around this time last year local officials up there were trying to attract G4 but were having issues with the ground handling side of things, maybe they finally got it settled. The airport director stated earlier this year that he was hoping that MOT would see G4 sometime this fall.

This flight would do fairly well with Canadians as well.


EDIT: looks like surf beat me to it.

I'm hoping St. Cloud, Minnesota. I'm pretty sure their population is under 100,000 and the airport has been looking for commercial service since DL left.

I went over to the Facebook page just to look, and after reading through the comments and guesses, I've concluded that most people don't even pay attention to clues, and are just.... clueless (I guess that's a mild as I can put it). Good grief.

Anyway, in the spirit of those guessing on the Facebook page my guess is - Shanghai China.

Sorry, did not realize that. I also thought that HNL was a secret because it was only a rumor. I guess more people know about than I thought.

Thank you, I was wondering what the e/q would be. I didn't even realize they had 757s, I thought that they only had 717s, or something like that. (By that I mean engines by the tail.)
