Low-cost carrier Allegiant Air will launch non-stop service from two new mainland US markets to Hawaii in February 2013, taking its total number of planned Hawaii routes to ten.

The carrier will begin flights between Spokane, Washington and Honolulu from 8 February, and between Boise, Idaho and Honolulu from 9 February. Spokane and Boise are currently not served by Allegiant, which will operate weekly on both routes.

Allegiant started serving Hawaii in June, and has already announced eight routes this year serving the island state. It has started operating on two routes and will launch flights on the remaining six in November.

The airline received extended range operations certification from the Federal Aviation Administration in June to operate its Boeing 757s on the Hawaii flights.

It has four 757s in service currently and will add two more in the first quarter of 2013 when the aircraft are returned to Allegiant from a UK carrier leasing them. Allegiant has said it could grow its 757 fleet further to feed expansion in Hawaii.

The carrier will be the only airline operating on the two new routes, schedules in Innovata show.
