MESA, Ariz. — Allegiant Air announces new nonstop service to Memphis (MEM), Des Moines (DSM), and Fresno (FAT) through Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport (AZA) with service starting in December.

“Allegiant Air has been a good partner and today’s announcement is another example of how well we support each other,” said Town of Queen Creek Mayor and Airport Authority Board Chairman, Gail Barney. “I look forward to greeting passengers from these new markets and I congratulate Allegiant on another expansion at Gateway Airport.” 

With today’s announcement, Allegiant Air’s total nonstop destinations served from AZA grows to 38 cities.

Memphis Mayor A C Wharton Jr. said, “These new nonstop flights to Phoenix-Mesa are yet another example of positive momentum for Memphis and the Memphis International Airport.
