Allegiant Air begins new service to Punta Gorda Airport in February

— Allegiant Air is offering new, nonstop jet service between Plattsburgh and Fort Meyers/Punta Gorda, via Punta Gorda Airport, beginning Feb. 23.

Allegiant Air will introduce the new service with fares as low as $109.99 one way.

“We are pleased to bring a new affordable and convenient travel option for Plattsburgh residents,” said Andrew C. Levy, Allegiant Travel Company President. “We are confident the community will appreciate the value of flying nonstop to Southwest Florida and the value of bundling their air, hotel and car rental reservations together.”

The new flights will operate twice weekly between Plattsburgh International Airport and Punta Gorda Airport, starting Feb. 23.

“Plattsburgh International was already the affordable fun and sun airport for northern New York and the Montreal region, and now Punta Gorda and Southwest Florida join all of the other great destinations being enjoyed from Montreal’s U.S. Airport,” said Garry Douglas, President of the North Country Chamber of Commerce. “We know from past experience that this service will be another success for our airport and for Allegiant, and the Chamber and its members are very pleased to have been able to work with our partners at Allegiant to help make this happen.”

Plattsburgh travelers can take advantage of low fares and save more when they book air, hotel, car and activity and attraction reservations together. For flight schedules and reservations visit: allegiant.com.

“Clinton County welcomes the resumption of nonstop service between Plattsburgh and Punta Gorda, a popular North Country destination,” said Plattsburgh Airport Manager Chris Krieg. “Since commencing service at Plattsburgh in 2007, Allegiant Air has been instrumental to the success of the airport.

“The addition of Punta Gorda service, along with the recently announced Las Vegas flights, points to the strength of the Plattsburgh/Montreal market, and we look forward to the continued partnership between Allegiant Air and the Plattsburgh International Airport and the pursuit of future growth opportunities,” Krieg said.

The Southwest Florida Coast destination features beach-front dining, exotic wildlife and a wide variety of recreation in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Punta Gorda Airport is centrally located midway between the beaches of Fort Meyers shore and Sarasota’s tropical island communities
