Allegiant Air announces two new direct flights

With the addition of Allegiant to its roster, SRQ now hosts seven airlines and offers nonstop flights to 15 cities, said Bob Spencer, chairman of the Sarasota Manatee Airport Authority.

The Sarasota and Charleston flights push the Indianapolis International Airport to 51 nonstop destinations.

It will operate year-round to Sarasota from both Indianapolis and Pittsburgh on 11 April, and from Cincinnati on 13 April.

This is the regional airport's first ultra-low-cost carrier and is expected to bring 100,000 more passengers to Sarasota Bradenton International Airport.

The new destinations are Sarasota, Florida and Charleston, South Carolina. According to a press release, the flights are expected to bring almost 52,000 new visitors to the area.

Her decision became a much talked-about topic of discussion on social media, with people posting differing opinions on the matter. Speaking to Refinery29, Blanco explained why she chose to wear red, saying: "I love red".

Allegiant estimates the new service will bring nearly 30,000 passengers to the Holy City.

Elite Airways announced in December that it was beginning nonstop service to Pittsburgh starting February 23.

The new flights will operate twice weekly, with one-way fares beginning at $48.

"The requests for these two destinations have been overwhelming and we know passengers will enjoy having a convenient, nonstop, affordable option to these warm destinations", says Allegiant senior vice-president of commercial Lukas Johnson. "These two new destinations are just the start for a great future with Indianapolis International Airport and Allegiant". The Charlotte County airport has seen hand-over-fist expansion in recent years and offers travelers more than 30 destinations. "Charleston offers lovely scenery and authentic Southern charm that we know our passengers will enjoy, and we're excited to be the new carrier of choice to this fantastic city". They had spoken with Allegiant executives about six months ago but the airline didn't approach the airport looking for a deal until just a few weeks ago.
