The announcement comes amid growing 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.
