In response to overwhelming demand from central Illinois passengers, Allegiant is extending their non-stop schedule of flights from Springfield’s Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport (SPI) to the Fort Myers, Florida area (PGD) through June 3, 2013. The inaugural schedule, which began service in Springfield on November 6th, initially provided flights to April 15th, however Allegiant has now extended the schedule to offer flights to June 3rd. Airport officials cite strong loads and robust future bookings as the primary reasons for Allegiant’s extension of the flight schedule.
“This is the first time we have had non-stop flights to Ft. Myers extended into May and June,” says Mark Hanna, Springfield Airport Authority Executive Director. “The people in central Illinois have responded well to Allegiant’s flights to Florida’s Gulf Coast from Springfield. We are grateful for this new service offered by Allegiant and we appreciate the continued confidence they have in our market.”
Allegiant flies a weekly schedule of non-stop flights to the Fort Myers, Florida area via the Punta Gorda Airport (PGD). Specific flight dates and fares can be found at allegiant.com or by contacting the Springfield airport’s Passenger Service Center at 217-788-9200.
