A Mascoutah woman and two others are traveling to Florida after winning a promotion offered by Allegiant Airlines.
Kay Connolly left Thursday from MidAmerica St. Louis Airport to Punta Gorda/Fort Myers after winning a promotion marking the start of the new Allegiant route from MidAmerica in Mascoutah.
Allegiant held a special Pack Your Bags promotion, inviting spontaneous travelers to come to the airport this morning to register for a chance to win two round-trip tickets on the inaugural flight and a three-night hotel stay.
Connolly took her brother Kent Schroeder along as her travel companion. Kent was at the airport himself with his girlfriend Jeanette Materkowski, of New Baden, to also register for a chance to win. After the winner was drawn, Materkowski ended up buying one of the few remaining seats on the flight so all three got to head to the Sunshine State together.
