Ultra-low-cost carrier Allegiant has announced yet another round of expansion plans, this time announcing nine new routes with a focus almost entirely on the U.S. West Coast.

The city that will receive the largest increase in destinations is San Diego with six new destinations. The carrier will begin service from the Southern California city to Las Vegas, Tulsa, Okla., Billings, Mont., Medford, Ore., Sioux Falls, S.D. and Idaho Falls, Idaho.

The expansion at the formerly named Lindbergh Field brings the destination count of the airport up to ten destinations, a city that only three years ago Allegiant was considering cutting service to.

Las Vegas via McCarran International Airport is the second destination the carrier announced expansion at. The locally-based airline will begin three new destinations from its hometown airport to San Diego, Tucson, Ariz. and Fort Wayne, Ind.

These new routes will bring the nonstop count in the Nevada city up to 58 for the carrier. Furthermore establishing Allegiant’s commitment it has to the city.

The final route announcement is from Destin-Fort Walton Beach, Fla. where Allegiant announced one new destination to Bloomington-Normal, Ill. via the Central Illinois Regional Airport. This brings the nonstop total from the Floridian city to 37.

All of the routes announced in this round of expansion will commence service in the first week of June 2020.

    Joe has always been interested in planes, for as long as he can remember. He grew up in Central New York during the early 2000s when US Airways Express turboprops ruled the skies. Being from a non-aviation family made it harder for him to be around planes and would only spend about three hours a month at the airport. He was so excited when he could drive by himself and the first thing he did with the license was get ice cream and go plane spotting for the entire day. When he has the time (and money) he likes to take spotting trips to any location worth a visit. He’s currently enrolled at Western Michigan University earning a degree in Aviation Management and Operations.
