Goodness knows a lot of us are ready to get out of town-- but the question is, do we feel safe to travel? It's uncertain what the state of the pandemic will be in late winter... but Allegiant air has announced two new non-stop flights out of Grand Rapids to start in March 2021.

According to a press release from Allegiant, the new routes to/from Grand Rapids, Michigan via Gerald R. Ford International Airport (GRR) include:

  • Newark, New Jersey via Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) – beginning Mar. 5, 2021 with fares as low as $59* each way.
  • Destin, Florida via Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport (VPS) – beginning Mar. 5, 2021 with fares as low as $49* each way.

The new routes in and out of Grand Rapids were part of a larger announcement of 15 new non-stop routes nationwide.

In August GRR became the first airport in the U.S. to test a new autonomous robot that disinfects COVID-19 using ultraviolet technology.

After reopening in the summer, GRR launched their "Fly Safe. Fly Ford" campaign which details the airports health and safety protocols like continuous disinfecting and sanitizing high-traffic areas, hand sanitizer stations throughout the terminal, and plexiglass shields at all guest and employee interaction points.
