Florida is back on the flight path out of Springfield.
Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport has resumed its seasonal non-stop flights between Springfield and Punta Gorda, Florida. The twice-weekly flights have proven to be popular with local travelers seeking to escape the cold weather.
As a result, the airport and Allegiant Air recently announced a second route, with regular flights to the Orlando-Sanford airport. Those flights begin on November 22nd. The airport says additional Florida flights may be added to schedule for peak times around the holidays and spring break.
