MidAmerica St. Louis Airport Welcomes Return of Allegiant Air

MASCOUTAH, IL (SWI-NEWS.com), August 21, 2012 - Allegiant Air has announced a new, nonstop jet service between MidAmerica St. Louis Airport and Orlando, Florida, beginning November 7, 2012, with fares as low as $69.99 one way.

"Allegiant is a great airline and we're excited to welcome them back to MidAmerica Airport," stated St. Clair County Board Chairman Mark Kern. "They provided a great service when they previously operated flights from MidAmerica, and we're pleased to have them re-start their service to Orlando, Florida at this time."

"We're confident that our community and residents of surrounding communities on both sides of the Mississippi River will appreciate the convenience that MidAmerica offers with the added travel options now available in the market," said Kern.

Following a press conference at MidAmerica this morning, Eric Fletcher, Allegiant Manager of Airports, stated that "escalating fares by other carriers, prompted the company to take another look at MidAmerica and a community that was underserved. This airport is extremely convenient and has free parking."

"We were here before and we were looking for the right opportunity and right time to come back, said Fletcher. "We think we have grown tremendously as a company. We think we offer tremendous value and aim to keep a low fare and fill the seats. There is no set ticket price that we are targeting right now, but we are hoping to keep the fares low and competitive."

Fletcher confirmed that if bookings go well, the company will be looking at connecting Belleville, IL with other vacation destinations including Honolulu, Oakland, LA, Tampa and Fort Meyers.

The new flights will operate twice weekly between MidAmerica St. Louis Airport (BLV) and Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB).

Fletcher noted that the Orlando Sanford International Airport has direct access to Daytona Beach as well as all the tourists attractions including Disney World.

Local officials and representatives from area businesses attended a press conference, August 21, at MidAmerican St. Louis Airport for Allegiant Air's annoucement of a new nonstat jet service to Orlando, Florida.
