HEBRON, Ky.July 15, 2014 - Allegiant (NASDAQ: ALGT) announces today new, nonstop jet service from Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) to Fort Lauderdale beginning Oct. 9, 2014 and Phoenix beginning Nov. 12, 2014. In addition to these two new, low-cost flight options for Cincinnati travelers, Allegiant will also add additional weekly flights to Orlando, St. Pete and Punta Gorda. The company, known for its exceptional travel deals, is proud to be bringing vacation travel back to CVG with nonstop flights to sunshine as low as $81* one way.
"We are excited to further expand low-cost air travel in Cincinnati," said Andrew C. Levy, Allegiant Travel Company President and COO. "Since we began operating in Cincinnati earlier this year, the community has shown an overwhelming appetite for access to affordable vacation travel. We are confident the community will appreciate the convenience of flying nonstop to these new destinations and the value of bundling their air, hotel and car rental reservation together."
Allegiant began its service at Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky International Airport in February 2014 with nonstop flights to Orlando. The carrier has since added nonstop flights to two additional Florida vacation destinations as well as seasonal summer service to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. This announcement will more than double Allegiant's footprint at CVG, increasing from seven weekly flights to 18, serving six destinations. Cincinnati is the fastest-growing origination city in Allegiant's 15-year history, and the carrier attributes the expansion to the overwhelming demand for low-cost, nonstop flights to leisure destinations.
"We are proud to have Allegiant more than double their capacity at CVG to include new service to Ft. Lauderdale and Phoenix and expanded service to Orlando, Punta Gorda and Tampa Bay / St.Pete," said Candace McGraw, Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky International Airport, Chief Executive Officer. The additional flights on Allegiant represent a 157 percent increase in capacity by growing from seven flights per week to 18 flights per week. As the fastest growing market in Allegiant's 15 year history, the success at CVG would not be possible without the immense support from the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky community."
The new flights to Fort Lauderdale will operate four times weekly between Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL). The new flights to Phoenix will operate twice weekly between Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) and Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport (AZA).
