February 13, 2019 - This week Allegiant announced two new nonstop routes to Savannah / Hilton Head International Airport (SAV) from Albany, New York and Providence, Rhode Island. To celebrate, the company is offering fares on the new routes as low as $49 each way.

“We’re excited to announce this latest expansion in Savannah,” said Drew Wells, Allegiant vice president of planning and revenue. “We’re sure folks in Albany and Providence will enjoy the historic charm of Savannah, the sunny shores of Hilton Head and our convenient, nonstop service.”

The new seasonal routes to Savannah / Hilton Head International Airport (SAV) include:

  1. Albany, New York via Albany International Airport (ALB) – beginning June 6, 2019 with fares as low as $49 each way.
  2. Providence, Rhode Island  via T.F. Green Airport (PVD) – beginning June 6, 2019 with fares as low as $49 each way.

The new nonstop routes will operate twice-weekly and will bring nearly 7,000 passengers to the Savannah / Hilton Head area annually, contributing to visitor spending in the local economy. Flight days, times and the lowest fares can be found only at

Last month, Allegiant announced service to Savannah from Allentown, Pennsylvania; Grand Rapids, Michigan; Niagara Falls, New York; and Portsmouth, New Hampshire. These routes are on sale now with service beginning June 7.

“Albany and Providence not only represent large population centers, but they are the capitols of their respective states which adds to the new opportunities before us,” said Gregory B. Kelly, Savannah Airport Commission executive director. “We appreciate Allegiant’s repeated confidence in our airport and the region it serves. There is no doubt that we will receive many new visitors as a result of this service, and this is another very significant air service win for us and the coastal regions of both Georgia and South Carolina.”

Allegiant offers a unique option to Savannah-bound travelers with low base airfare and savings on rental cars and hotels. Travelers can book their entire vacation with Allegiant for less.
