FORT WAYNE and SOUTH BEND - Travelers in northern Indiana looking for a warmer climate have a new way to get there.  Airports in Fort Wayne and South Bend will this weekend begin offering seasonal nonstop flight to Sarasota, Florida on Allegiant Air (Nasdaq: ALGT).

Fort Wayne International Airport says its nonstop flight to Sarasota-Bradenton Airport will begin Sunday.

As a seasonal route, it will run from late November through late spring 2020.

“We are thrilled to welcome another nonstop flight from FWA with Allegiant,” said Scott Hinderman, executive director of airports, “Sarasota will be another great Florida option for residents of the northeast Indiana region as we enter into the winter season.”

Hinderman says the Sarasota route marks the thirteenth non-stop destination that Fort Wayne Airport offers.

Meanwhile, Allegiant will begin service from South Bend to Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport on Monday, November 25.

Like Fort Wayne, South Bend will have nonstop flights twice a week.
