If you're looking for a quick, affordable getaway from the state of Iowa, Allegiant Air just added a HUGE new destination on the West Coast!

Los Angeles seems like a long way away from the state of Iowa. OK, it actually is, but it doesn't seem so far away anymore since Allegiant Airlines announced that they are now offering seasonal nonstop flights to L.A. from The Eastern Iowa Airport in Cedar Rapids! KCRG reports that the flights began yesterday.

If you're looking for affordable rates for a West Coast vacation this just might be your ticket! Allegiant flights leave and return to Cedar Rapids on Wednesdays and Saturdays meaning you could plan a quick Hollywood getaway today! I checked rates this morning and rates were between $70 and $80 for a flight to L.A. on a Wednesday with a Saturday flight back running around $60 to $75.

This is the latest destination Allegiant has added to departures from The Eastern Iowa airport. Travelers can also choose to head to Daytona Beach, Ft. Lauderdale, Las Vegas, Nashville, Phoenix, Punta Gorda, Sanford, Sarasota, St. Pete, and Tampa Bay. Make your travel plans now to enjoy the lowest rates!
