A New Airline Offers More Options To El Paso Travelers
Traveling in and out of El Paso just got a lot easier. That's because a new airline will begin serving the city's travelers. Mayor Oscar Leeser has been spearheading the 'El Paso. Open for Business' campaign to help drive the local economy and bring more jobs to the city. Being able to get in and out of town easier makes the city more attractive to companies that are looking to do business here.
Leeser and other City officials were part of an announcemen Tuesday morning that welcomed Allegiant Air to town. They will begin flying in and out of El Paso on May 6th. Allegiant Air officials say they are 'very excited to be here in El Paso'. You can get flights on Allegiant for as low as $39 one way through January 13th as part of a special promotion being offered by the airline.
The new airline isn't bringing new new jobs to El Paso International because Allegiant will subcontract workers already employed at the airport, but if more flights are added in the future, that could mean more jobs.
