NEW YORK —
Bricker said the airline isn't cutting service elsewhere but adding these routes thanks to seven new 177-seat Airbus A320s, which will be in service by year end. Each new plane allows Allegiant to open up four new cities.
The addition of Long Island MacArthur Airport, in Islip, N.Y. and Stewart International Airport, in New Windsor, N.Y., brings the airline closer to the lucrative New York market but still far enough away to avoid the region's congestion and high prices. The other new cities are: Charlottesville, Va.; Clarksburg W. Va.; Concord, N.C.; Oklahoma City; Tulsa, Okla.; Syracuse, N.Y. and Manhattan, Kan.
