Allegiant began providing air service from the Rochester International Airport with non-stop flights to Phoenix a year ago. RST leaders have worked hard with Allegiant Air to market the services to the public.
Allegiant had this to say:

The “Pack Your Bags” contest will be a great way to celebrate our one-year anniversary on the route with the community and Rochester International Airport and we look forward to offering our ultra-low fares to Rochester travelers over the coming years.
Long-term goals are to increase traffic and possibly add additional routes.
We invite the media to come out for interviews and to gather footage. The winner will be drawn at 4:30pm, Friday, November 1 st.
