Allegiant offering new military discounts

Free services and perks are now available to active duty and retired military from Allegiant Air.

The program, Allegiant Honors, rolled out this week and includes active duty, retired military, members of the National Guard and Reserves and their dependents. They’re eligible for free services including: up to three pieces of checked baggage, one carry-on bag, one pet in cabin, courtesy boarding pass printing at the airport and free seat assignments, pending availability.  Active duty members may board flights with priority boarding at no charge and will not be charged a change or cancellation fee due to a change in their orders.

John Faulkner, director of the Great Falls International Airport, said the program is available for Allegiant flights out of Great Falls.

All optional items and services will be added to itinerary at the airport – eligible individuals should reserve in person with valid military I.D. Those who have paid for items which qualify for a military waiver may visit the airport ticket counter for a refund of eligible fees.
