Allegiant Air is a growing airline and the choice of many BC travellers when heading to destinations within the United States.
The airline’s popularity in Bellingham led to an expansion of their presence at the local airport and was responsible for over 50% of the airport’s passenger traffic in 2012.
The Bellingham Airport, just 1 hour from downtown Vancouver (not including border times), recently completed a $17-million, 60,000-square-foot addition to the main terminal, ticketing and baggage claim area and a 20,000-square-foot renovation of the passenger gates was completed last year [source].
John and I recently flew out of Bellingham when I won a trip with Allegiant Airlines. We parked our vehicle on-site, just a 2 minute walk from the front doors of the airport, and it only cost $30 for four days, which you might pay in one day for parking in Vancouver. From there we soared across the Pacific Northwest, over the desert, and landed in fabulous Las Vegas.

Starting with just one plane flying from Fresno, Calif. to Las Vegas, NV on Feb. 28, 1999, Allegiant has grown to a fleet of 68 planes, flying over 7 million passengers last year. Allegiant now serves over 90 cities nationwide.
Over the years, Allegiant has carried over 40 million passengers, and the Company continues to grow, offering more nonstop service in more communities. In 2013, Allegiant announced service in 15 new cities and added 39 new routes to its network at a time when many airlines are consolidating and cutting service. The company recently announced its 44th consecutive quarter of profitable operation while keeping its average one-way fare under $100.
