As of Thursday, Provo’s Municipal Airport and Allegiant are offering three new nonstop flights.
Service began Thursday from Provo to Austin and Houston, Texas. On Friday, flights to Palm Springs, California, from Provo take off.
“We’re thrilled to offer Provo residents with three new options for their warm winter getaways,” said Drew Wells, Allegiant’s senior vice president of revenue and planning. “We think vacationers will appreciate our unique brand of travel: low-cost, nonstop flights without the hassle of layovers or connections.”
The additions enhance the flight opportunities as Provo gets closer to opening its new terminal this coming spring.
“On Nov. 5, 2019, we broke ground on our Provo Airport terminal expansion hopeful that ‘if we build it, they will come,’” Provo Mayor Michelle Kaufusi said. “Since that time we’ve announced eight new destinations with each new roundtrip destination bringing a potential $15 million infusion into our local, regional, and state economy.”

“Now positioned as the second busiest airport in the state, Provo City is truly taking flight, but this economic momentum would not be possible without the collaborative partnership of federal, state, county and city governments,” Kaufusi added.
New service from Provo Airport (PVU) includes:
- Austin, Texas via Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) – beginning Nov. 18, 2021 with fares as low as $39.
- Houston, Texas via William P. Hobby Airport (HOU) – beginning Nov. 18, 2021 with fares as low as $39.
- Palm Springs, California via Palm Springs International Airport (PSP) – beginning Nov. 19, 2021 with fares as low as $33.
These three new nonstop flights up the list of destinations out of Provo to eight. Other locations include Denver, Orange County, Phoenix/Mesa, Phoenix Sky Harbor and St. Petersburg/Clearwater/Tampa, Florida.
The new flights will operate twice weekly. Flight days, times and the lowest fares can be found on Allegiant’s website.
