"Since commencing service at Armstrong International, Allegiant has been a vital part of travel to and from New Orleans," said New Orleans Aviation Board Chairwoman, Cheryl Teamer. "Allegiant is helping to foster tourism in the City by bringing people from cities that formerly had no direct flights to New Orleans."

"Destinations such as Tulsa are helping make travel easier and more efficient for travellers," said New Orleans Councilman Jared Brossett, Chair of the Transportation and Aviation Committee. "By offering flights from one point to another, Allegiant has given more people greater accessibility to our City."

"Since starting service at Armstrong International in 2015, Allegiant has seen exponential growth in New Orleans," said Iftikhar Ahmad, Director of Aviation for Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. "Their business model can sustain access for New Orleans into markets that other airlines may not be able to provide and Tulsa is prime example of those cities."
