Allegiant Ends Flights in Saginaw

Allegiant Airlines, a low cost niche carrier, is ending all flights to and from Saginaw’s MBS Intl Airport (MBS). The airline provided Saginaw with non-stop flights to Orlando’s Sanford Airport (SFB).

The last day of operations for Allegiant Airlines at Saginaw’s MBS airport will be September 23, 2012. The airline has announced customers with reservations beyond the last day of flights will be contacted directly by Allegiant for a full refund.

If you’re affected by Allegiant’s cancellation of scheduled flights and don’t want to ruin your trip, alternative options are available. If you’re able to drive to Detroit-Metro Airport (DTW) or use a shuttle service, we suggest you look intoSouthwest Airlines Vacations. Great rates on Orlando vacation packages!

Remaining airlines at MBS Intl Airport are Delta Air Lines and United Airlines. Delta offers non-stop flights via Delta Connection to their hubs at Detroit-Metro Airport (DTW) and Minneapolis/St. Paul International (MSP) while United Airlines provides non-stop flights via United Express to their hub at Chicago’s O’Hare International (ORD) Airport.

Both Delta and United fly to Orlando International Airport (MCO) and offer connecting service via their hubs.

Competition at Saginaw’s MBS Intl Airport is limited between two carriers at this point — individuals looking for better deals will find Detroit-Metro to be a highly competitive market with a variety of legacy and low cost carriers.

In a statement, Eric Fletcher, Allegiant Travel Co. Manager of Airports, said, “We are always disappointed to end service in a market.” Fletcher added, “We thank MBS International Airport for their partnership and apologize to any travelers who are inconvenienced by this decision.”
