Allegiant Air announces new nonstop flight from Louisville to Austin

The new route will begin operation in November. One-way tickets can be purchased for as low as $39 for a limited time.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A new nonstop flight from Louisville to Austin, Texas will be available from Allegiant this fall.

Allegiant Air announced the flight Tuesday. The company said it is celebrating the new flight from Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport (SDF) to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) by offering one-way tickets on the new route starting at $39.

"Until today, the Texas capital was one of the largest unserved markets from Louisville," said Dan Mann, the executive director of the Louisville Regional Airport Authority. "This is another great win for SDF as we continue to see our passenger traffic climb to near-record levels.”

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer said the new location will connect Louisville to Austin's growing tech industry and strengthen partnerships with Microsoft, Humana and other companies.

This marks the 36th nonstop destination offered by the Louisville airport.

Starting Nov. 18, 2021, the new route will operate twice a week, on Thursday and Sundays. Available flights are available to view and book on Allegiant.com.

The lower, introductory price is not available for all flights and seats and dates are limited. To qualify for the introductory fare, flights must be bought between June 30, 2021 and Feb. 13, 2022.

Allegiant announced a new nonstop service from Louisville to Charleston, South Carolina earlier this year.
