Since 2009, Allegiant Air has offered flights in and out of Punta Gorda. They began with only two cities on the Punta Gorda roster: Greenville, South Carolina and Knoxville, Tennessee. They now provide direct service to 19 cities from Punta Gorda.

Tim Bradshaw, the Eastern Iowa Airport director in Cedar Rapids, commented “We are thrilled to expand our partnership with Allegiant to bring direct service to Southwest Florida. From the first flight in 2004, our community has taken advantage of the low cost travel options that Allegiant provides. We look forward to a lasting partnership.”

Previously other small direct flight airlines attempted to build business going in and out of Punta Gorda, but they didn’t stick. Forbes Magazine has named Allegiant Air one of America’s 100 Best Small Companies four years in a row. With these new additions and its good reputation, it seems Allegiant air is here to stay.

Punta Gorda Airport is located off exit 164 on I-75. You can book tickets on Allegiant at http://www2.allegiantair.com. The introductory rates are good until August 6, 2013 and are good for travel dates up to February 11, 2014.
