GREEN, Ohio. March 8, 2016 — Allegiant (NASDAQ: ALGT) today announces new, nonstop service between Akron / Canton, Ohio and Orlando, Florida. In conjunction with the new route announcement, Allegiant also kicks off the upcoming summer travel season with a “$1 Million Summer” campaign, pledging to give away $1 million in airfare now through the end of summer. As part of this campaign, the first 22 travelers to book their flights on the new route will receive a refund for their round-trip airfare.*
“We’re very excited to announce new, nonstop service to Orlando from northeast Ohio, a region that has certainly embraced Allegiant’s low-cost, nonstop flights to vacation destinations,” said Jude Bricker, Allegiant chief operating officer. “We know that travelers in Akron / Canton and the surrounding area will take advantage of this new nonstop option to the destination of Orlando this summer.”
The year-round flights will operate twice weekly and will fly nonstop between Akron-Canton Airport (CAK) and the Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB) beginning May 19, 2016. The company, known for its exceptional travel deals, is offering one-way fares to Orlando for as low as $39.**
Flight days, times and the lowest fares can be found only at Allegiant.com.
“Allegiant is simply the best airline for affordable Florida vacations,” said Akron-Canton Airport president and CEO Rick McQueen. “Orlando is our top leisure destination, so we are thrilled that Allegiant will offer nonstop flights to families who prefer to spend their time at the theme park, not at a connecting hub. Affordable fares, perfect vacation packages and big jets; it just doesn’t get any better than that.”
Allegiant offers a unique travel option to Akron / Canton travelers. Focusing on low-cost leisure travel, the company provides customers with low base fares averaging nearly half of the cost of the average domestic round-trip fare. Allegiant’s innovative business model has allowed the company to grow from one aircraft and one route just over a decade ago, to providing convenient, affordable service in over 100 communities nationwide.
