Allegiant Air leaves this North Dakota town

Allegiant Air texted customers yesterday to let them know that the airline will be canceling all flights to and from Grand Forks for the month of December.

As you can imagine, with vacation trips planned months or even a year in advance by Allegiant passengers, this has caused quite a stir. Allegiant says they plan to return to service in January.

According to KVRR TV, passengers will be refunded their money, or they can try to reschedule their flights from Fargo. A spokesperson for the Las Vegas-based airline says they periodically study travel out of their cities and was determined to take a month-long hiatus at Grand Forks International Airport.

Grand Forks Herald reports, “I just met them (Allegiant) last month, and it hasn’t been addressed,” said Ryan Riesinger, executive director of Grand Forks Regional Airport. Now, hundreds of people who had planned hot-weather vacation destinations are scrambling to reschedule flights or make other arrangements.

Grand Forks International Airport is not the only airport affected, according to Allegiant Air. 44 airports across the country will also lose upcoming Allegiant air service. Allegiant also blamed the situation on the lack of planes.

Apparently, Allegiant has periodically canceled dates in Grand Forks, but nothing like that. For those with Thanksgiving travel plans, November flights from Grand Forks International Airport will not be affected. Allegiant has served Grand Forks since 2009.
