Getting to warmer climates from Indiana just got easier as Allegiant Air (Nasdaq: ALGT) has announced multiple new routes from airports in Indianapolis, Fort Wayne and South Bend. The company added flights to two new destinations from the Indianapolis International Airport: Tucson, Arizona with service beginning November 14 and West Palm Beach, Florida with service starting November 25.

These new routes will operate twice weekly.  Allegiant will now serve 15 cities from Indianapolis.

Indianapolis Airport Authority Executive Director Mario Rodriguez says the crew base Allegiant placed at the Indy airport in 2018 is a real advantage for Indy travelers. “Those investments are adding value to the Indy airport and community,” said Rodriguez.

Allegiant has also expanded its presence at the Fort Wayne-Allen County Airport. The company announced Tuesday it will add a new seasonal non-stop route to Sarasota-Bradenton Airport beginning November 24.  The route will operate twice a week. As a seasonal route, it will run from late November through late spring 2020.

“Allegiant has been a great partner with FWA over the years and we are excited to see that partnership continue to grow into new markets,” said Scott Hinderman, executive director of airports in Fort Wayne-Allen County.

Just like Fort Wayne, South Bend International Airport is also adding a new nonstop flight to Sarasota-Bradenton. The seasonal route will operate twice weekly. This brings to six the number of cities that Allegiant reaches from South Bend.

“We are thrilled to add the sixth dot to our route map with Allegiant,” said Mike Daigle, South Bend International Airport CEO and executive director. “The addition of nonstop flights to Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport from South Bend International during the cold winter/early spring months will allow residents… to enjoy fun in the sun with their toes in the sand.”
