2. Southwest left Dayton this summer, but then they added services in Cincinnati.
The airline's decision to leave Dayton is indicative of a pervasive problem for small airports across the U.S. — major air carrier companies are leaving small and mid-sized airports for larger hub markets. Southwest announced it would add services to Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, and would also pull services at the Akron-Canton airport.
3. Frontier has been adding new, cheap flights throughout the year in Cincinnati.
The low-cost airline announced earlier this year it would add services from CVG to San Diego, Minneapolis and LaGuardia International Airport in New York. The airline offered introductory fares as low as $29 for flights between April 21 and June 6.
4. Allegiant adds a new Myrtle Beach route from Dayton.
Low-cost airline Allegiant Air added a nonstop flight to Myrtle Beach from the Dayton International Airport, with fare as low as $49.
The flights have been operating twice weekly from the Dayton airport since May. Flight days, times and lowest fares can be found at the Allegiant website.
5. Allegiant also grew in Cleveland, Louisville and Columbus.
Low-cost airline Allegiant added 17 new routes at hubs nationwide, including two airports in Ohio. The airline added new base operations and service from Louisville, Ky. Cleveland and Columbus airports will have a new seasonal nonstop service to Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport starting in May.
