It has never been so easy to get there from here.
Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport has spent the last few years giving its airlift a complete overhaul, courting new carriers and opening up new destinations across the country. The result? It has never been easier to get there from here.
The “Big Three” carriers have always had their stamp on our local airport, offering plenty of options for seeing the world. And with the airport so close, travel in and out of the Lowcountry is quick and easy. For example, American Airlines offers daily nonstop departures to two major hubs, Charlotte and Dallas/Fort Worth, as well as Philadelphia and Washington – DCA. In June, they began offering a daily nonstop service to Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport and Miami. Delta offers an astounding ten daily nonstops to their Atlanta hub, as well as nonstop daily departures to Detroit and New York City’s LaGuardia and JFK airports. Additionally, the airline offers seasonal weekly flights to Minneapolis/St. Paul. And last but not least among the Big Three, United flies daily nonstops to O’Hare, Houston, Newark and Washington – IAD.
Thinking of catching a Broadway show in New York City? Or maybe it is Miami’s Art Basel you prefer, where you are bound to bump into A-listers when they are not behind the velvet rope. Either way you will arrive in the Big Apple or the Magic City in less than two hours and thirty minutes. Looking for a cultural injection? Make a beeline for Canada’s largest city for art and food, Toronto. Just two years ago, Air Canada began offering direct flights to Toronto-Pearson Airport. This not only gave the airport its first nonstop international flight, but it also gave our area a direct link to its No. 1 visitor market.
But where Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport has raised the bar is in courting smaller carriers. JetBlue has made it more affordable than ever to see the world, with daily nonstop departures to their home airport at JFK as well as Boston Logan. Frontier Airlines has brought their no-frills approach to the SAV, with weekly nonstop departures to Denver and Philadelphia beginning in May. And Sun Country Airlines has also begun offering seasonal service to Minneapolis/St. Paul.
Of the smaller carriers who have made their home at SAV, perhaps none have had a greater impact than Las Vegas-based Allegiant Airlines. The carrier has launched several routes since coming to Savannah, including weekly flights to Baltimore, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Indianapolis, Lexington, Louisville, Newark and Pittsburgh. With flights running as low as $48, exploring the country has never been so easy!
The result of all of this new service is two-fold. It not only gives Lowcountry residents easy travel options, but it also makes it easier for visitors to plan their next vacation getaway in the beautiful South Carolina Lowcountry.
