"We are confident the community will enjoy the convenient access to this popular warm-weather destination and the ability to book their entire vacation with us for less."
The service will operate twice weekly, flying nonstop from Colorado Springs Airport (COS) to Phoenix / Mesa Gateway Airport (AZA) and becoming the only nonstop service from Colorado Springs to any destination in Arizona. Flight days and times and the lowest fares can be found at Allegiant.com.
