Evansville Regional Airport will this evening announce new nonstop service. The airport currently offers direct service to cities including Atlanta, Chicago and Dallas.

The announcement is set for this evening at 5:00. Airport, airline and community leaders are set to take part in the event. The announcement marks more momentum for the airport. It reported a record year in 2015, with passenger traffic increasing more than 19 percent. In March, Allegiant said it would add nonstop service between Evansville and Orlando, Florida. Those flights began in June. Earlier this summer, the airport completed a new $1.5 million jet bridge, which it says was needed because of growing passenger demand.

The addition comes weeks after Indianapolis International Airport announced new daily nonstop service to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. That agreement secured Alaska Airlines as the newest carrier in Indianapolis. At the time, Indianapolis International Airport Authority Executive Director Mario Rodriguez said the airline "is not starting service here for just one destination. IND has also announced new nonstops to Philadelphia and Savannah this year.
