Allegiant Air launching service to Charleston International Airport

Flights to Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport will be offered Thursday and Sunday starting April 5, and routes to Indianapolis International Airport will begin on April 6 on Fridays and Mondays.

The Sarasota flight will be year-round, while the Charleston one is seasonal, according to a release by the Indianapolis International Airport.

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.

Allegiant is offering an introductory fare of $48 dollars each way.

Three new destinations is huge for Sarasota County tourism, said Virginia Haley, president of Visit Sarasota County.

Allegiant also has a reputation for adding routes once it is serving a destination and doing it fast, Haley said.

SRQ Airport now has a total of 7 airlines. Airline officials said more routes are possible but didn't comment on what they would be. Twice-weekly nonstop flights on Fridays and Mondays are expected to start February 23.

The flights from Knoxville's McGhee Tyson Airport to Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey will resume June 8 and are available for booking now, Levy said.

Indianapolis Airport Authority Executive Director Mario Rodriguez says the service to Charleston, South Carolina and Sarasota, Florida is an outgrowth of a $40 million investment announced in August by the low-priced carrier. Flights to the Pittsburgh International Airport will launch on April 4, starting on Wednesday and Saturday before switching to Thursday and Sunday. It all unfolded in the last month or so.
