Allegiant Air’s first direct flight there from the Eugene Airport took off Thursday afternoon.
Travelers say they’re excited to visit somewhere a bit warmer and sunnier this fall.
“We’re going to lay by the pool, and if there’s a few extra things we can do over the weekend, then we’ll explore. We’re looking for sunshine. Can’t wait for the sunshine,” said travelers Jody Shaner and Cari Garrigus.
The first flight’s passengers also entered drawings to win things like free hotel stays.
Pretty soon, Palm Springs won’t be the only sun-drenched location offered by Allegiant Air. Its first direct flight to Honolulu takes off this Saturday.
