Allegiant adds Orlando flights in Springfield

SPRINGFIELD (AP) — Allegiant Air will begin flying to Orlando from the Springfield airport later this fall.

The low-cost carrier says the non-stop flights from Abraham Lincoln Capitol Airport will begin in late November. They're scheduled to depart twice a week.

The (Springfield) State Journal-Register reports (http://bit.ly/14XWXyl ) the airline is offering a special discounted round-trip rate of $99 until Thursday. After that, fares will cost $69 each way.

The carrier began twice-weekly flights from Springfield to Florida's Gulf Coast last fall.

Tuesday's announcement about the expansion in Springfield comes as Allegiant adds routes across the country. The Las Vegas airline said it was adding service to 10 new airports, most of which will have flights to Florida.
