MASCOUTAH — The 2017 Allegiant summer flight schedule, which starts in April, contains significant increased weekly flight options from MidAmerica St. Louis Airport to some of the six destinations served.
According to data just released by Sixel Consulting Group, service to Destin/Fort Walton and Sanford/Orlando will increase to five days a week, from two, and Punta Gorda/Fort Myers and St. Pete/Tampa each increases to three days a week from two. Las Vegas and Jacksonville service will remain at two flights each week.
With these enhancements, the airport will average two departures and 299 seats per day, which represents a 58.8 percent increase in both flights and seats over April 2016. The routes with additional flights give some added flexibility to passengers who already appreciate the hassle-free experience of flying from MidAmerica.
St. Clair County Board Chairman Mark Kern commented, “Allegiant’s non-stop jet service to these great destinations has given this region low cost and high value alternatives never available before.”
Tim Cantwell, MidAmerica Airport Director, added, “In 2016, we experienced a 200 percent expansion of Allegiant service and passenger enplanements. These increased frequencies planned for the summer of 2017 further enhance the opportunities for people to fly from MidAmerica, and we look forward to adding even more destinations in the future.”
