"We are so happy to offer St. Louis-area residents this new, nonstop service to Sarasota/Bradenton this winter", said Drew Wells, Allegiant vice president of planning and revenue.
Flint Bishop Airport is adding a new destination to its route.
Allegiant announced a new nonstop service from McGhee Tyson Airport (TYS) to two cities in Florida. "We know local area residents will enjoy our convenient, affordable service to get away to handsome southwest Florida this winter".
This new seasonal route will operate twice weekly. As part of the announcement, Allegiant said it was offering one-way fares online starting at $69. "Our July record has been surpassed in August with over 45,000 passengers using the airport".
Routes to and from Palm Beach will include Pittsburgh (November 14); Charlotte, North Carolina (November 15); Knoxville, Tennessee (November 15); Indianapolis (November 21); Asheville, North Carolina (November 25) and Cincinnati (November 25).
Tuesday's announcement comes just weeks after Allegiant announced it would resume direct flights between Flint and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, starting December 20.
