Las Vegas-based Allegiant Travel
Company focuses on offering low-cost options for leisure travelers
and packages that include flights — through its Allegiant Air
subsidiary — hotel rooms, rental cars and tickets to attractions.
The flight will be available Thursdays and Sundays between Will
Rogers World Airport and Orlando-Sanford International Airport.
“We are pleased to be back in
Oklahoma City and bring affordable and convenient travel options to
area residents,” said Andrew C. Levy, Allegiant president. “We
are confident the Central Oklahoma community will appreciate the
convenience of flying nonstop to Orlando and the value of bundling
their air, hotel and car rental reservation together through us.”
Mark Kranenburg, director of the
Oklahoma City Department of Airports, said he is pleased to have
Allegiant return to the local market. Southwest Airlines recently has
offered seasonal service between Oklahoma City and Orlando, but
currently, no nonstop flight is available.
“Orlando is a top destination for
Oklahoma City travelers,” he said. “With Allegiant’s nonstop,
low-fare service, our customers will have a new option for travel to
the area at very competitive prices.”
Allegiant was founded more than a
decade ago and has grown from one plane to offering low-cost, nonstop
travel to 99 communities around the country. As part of the
announcement of the Oklahoma City/Orlando flights, the company is
offering a limited number of $99 round-trip tickets if purchased by
Aug. 22. The company also will offer a limited number of one-way
introductory fares to Orlando starting at $69 until Aug. 27.
