IMPERIAL, Pa. (AP) - Allegiant Air is adding flights to Austin, Texas and San Juan, Puerto Rico from Pittsburgh International Airport, where the low-cost carrier also plans to base a second passenger plane and add 30 jobs.

The Las-Vegas based airline plans to add twice-weekly flights to Austin beginning on Dec. 16 and once-weekly seasonal flights to San Juan beginning the following day.

The San Juan flights will run until late April.

Pittsburgh hasn’t had a nonstop flight to Austin since 1997. There has been no service to San Juan since 2008.

Introductory fares will start at $44 one way to Austin and $79 one way to San Juan.

The airline will fly to nine destinations from Pittsburgh with the addition of the new flights.

Allegiant currently has 43 workers in Pittsburgh.
