Allegiant offering non-stops flights from Dayton to Florida

Low-cost carrier Allegiant Air is now offering non-stop flights from Dayton International Airport to Florida.

Flights to Orlando Sanford International Airport started Thursday, and flights to St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport begin today.

“We could not be more thrilled to officially welcome Allegiant to Dayton International Airport,” Terrence Slaybaugh, airport director, said in a release. “Allegiant is known for providing affordable flights to many popular destinations, and Dayton travelers are thrilled to be able to now have convenient access to nonstop flights to two amazing cities.”

Allegiant’s business model is largely flights from U.S. cities to vacation destinations like Florida, Hawaii and Las Vegas.

The new non-stop flights will operate twice-weekly out of Dayton.

Prices for the new flights out of Dayton start as low as $51 to Orlando Sanford Airport and $57 to St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport.

To keep its ticket prices low, flights don’t include on-board entertainment or frequent flier promotions.
