Allegiant today inaugurates new nonstop service to southwest Florida via Punta Gorda Airport (PGD) from St. Louis and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
“Allegiant is very pleased to launch these new routes from St. Louis and Harrisburg to beautiful southwest Florida,” said Jude Bricker, Allegiant Chief Operating Officer.
“From golfing, fishing, beach lounging and more, we look forward to bringing these new visitors to experience Fort Myers and to stimulate economic growth in the area.”
The new flights will operate twice weekly and expand on the service Allegiant currently operates to Punta Gorda Airport (PGD). The new flights will bring nearly 38,000 additional visitors each year to the Fort Myers area, generating an estimated $56 million annually in total visitor spending.
Allegiant’s innovative business model has allowed it to grow from one plane and one route to offering access to low-cost flights in over 100 cities nationwide, more than any other domestic low-cost carrier.
