Air service between Springfield and Florida’s Southwest Coast will resume on schedule this fall… with a new carrier.
Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport has reached a deal with Allegiant Air to provide twice-weekly flights between Springfield and Punta Gorda, Florida. Those flights had been operated in recent years by Direct Air, until it filed for bankruptcy earlier this year.
The airport used part of a federal grant to provide incentives for Allegiant to come here… and is still in talks about possible expansion of the Florida service or the addition of more markets, including Las Vegas.
An introductory fare of $92.99 one way is available through next week… more details can be found at www.allegiant.com.
