Fly to Southern California from Stockton Airport via Allegiant's New Flights from Stockton to San Diego
April 9, 2016
You can fly to Southern California from Stockton Metropolitan Airport beginning this week. Allegiant began a new, nonstop service from Stockton to San Diego. “This is a wonderful day for Stockton Airport," said Harry Mavrogenes, airport director, adding that "Our customers have been clamoring for service to Southern California, and we now have it!”
The first flight between Stockton Metro Airport and San Diego International Airport was celebrated with traditional inaugural festivities. As the plane departed, fire engines from Montezuma Fire District doused the aircraft with water, which is a tradition with new flights. Inside the terminal, prior to the flight, Allegiant Air hosted a fun-filled event with a beach theme in honor of the destination city for passengers on this new flight. This lively event provided passengers with an opportunity to win refunds on their flights.
San Diego officials are also excited about the new flight. “We look forward to Allegiant’s convenient new service to San Diego from Stockton,” said Joe Terzi, San Diego Tourism president and chief operating officer. “San Diego was just named the number one most affordable destination in the U.S. by Money Magazine, and with our world-class family attractions, vibrant neighborhoods with great art, dining and nightlife, and our beautiful beaches, San Diego has something to offer every kind of traveler.”
To celebrate Allegiant’s new route between Stockton and San Diego, the company, known for its low cost travel deals, is offering one-way fares for as low as $39. (See Allegiant.com for details.) The new service will operate twice weekly and expand on the routes Allegiant currently operates to San Diego International Airport (SAN). In addition, Allegiant passengers can enjoy unique savings by bundling their air, hotel, car and even activity and attraction reservations together for less.
