PROVO — The low-cost airline competition is heating up at Provo Airport.

Allegiant Air began new service out of the airport Thursday with flights to Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas and San Diego International Airport. The airline is offering one-way trips to Las Vegas for as low as $33 and San Diego for $38 through Saturday for flights taken by Nov. 18.

"With Provo-based crews and aircraft, we're thrilled to be a part of the community and are responsive to the requests of vacationers who live here," said Drew Wells, the senior vice president of revenue and planning for Allegiant Air, in a statement. "Residents have been longing for vacation options to some of the West Coast's most iconic destinations and we expect the flights to San Diego and Las Vegas to be a massive hit."

The two destinations were announced during a celebration of the new Provo Airport terminal in May. The airline also plans to add new service to Portland, Oregon, beginning next month, and Orlando by the end of the year. It also has flights to nine other destinations already in service.

Allegiant Air revealed earlier this year plans to spend $95 million on a new base in Provo. The company provided an update last week by saying that it is hiring at least 60 new flight attendants over the next few months for the base, which is scheduled to begin operations on Nov. 16.

It had been the only airline provider in Provo for the past few years. That changed earlier this month when Utah-based Breeze Airways began its initial service to San Francisco and San Bernardino in California. Breeze's future service also includes Las Vegas (Oct. 5), as well as New York/Westchester (Oct. 5), Los Angeles (Nov. 2), Phoenix (Nov. 2) and Charleston, South Carolina (Nov. 2).
