Airline to offer 2 new nonstop flights

Associated Press

HEBRON - Las Vegas-based Allegiant Air will start nonstop service from the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport to two locations in South Carolina and Florida in May.

The discount airline announced last week that it plans to offer two nonstop flights a week to both Myrtle Beach, S.C., and the Tampa, Fla., region. Allegiant also plans to double its nonstop flights to the Fort Myers, Fla., region to four a week.

The Myrtle Beach and Tampa Bay flights will be seasonal, starting in May and ending in August.

Allegiant is offering an introductory, one-way discount fare of $59 to Myrtle Beach and Tampa Bay. Seats must be booked on Allegiant.com, and the offer ends March 11.

Cincinnati is the fastest-growing non-vacation site in Allegiant's 15-year history. The airline's expansion also could be another indication that local fliers are supporting low-cost service at the city's main airport after the years-long cuts by the dominant carrier, Delta Air Lines.

"If we had not seen strong demand on those routes, we definitely would have thought twice about adding two more destinations," Allegiant Air spokeswoman Jessica Wheeler said. "People are really excited to have a low-cost option at an airport that has traditionally seen some very high fares."
