Allegiant to begin nonstop service to Nashville in June

Allegiant to begin nonstop service to Nashville in June

Lauderdale, Fla., and Myrtle Beach, S.C., according to a press release.

In February, low-priced carrier Frontier Airlines announced it would start offering seasonal nonstop flights from Savannah to Denver and Philadelphia.

Myrtle Beach International Airport on Wednesday announced new non-stop routes into the Grand Strand from three different cities by Allegiant Airlines.

"We're thrilled to announce the only ultra-low-cost, nonstop travel option from Syracuse to Orlando", said Lukas Johnson, Allegiant senior vice president of commercial.

The airline will offer flights twice weekly from Syracuse Hancock International Airport to Orlando Sanford International Airport.

Beginning June 6, two routes into Myrtle Beach come from Flint, Michigan, ($58 fare) and Louisville Kentucky ($52 fare).

However, "the new service does qualify for the [airport] authority's air service incentive program, which will include a combination of fee waivers and marketing support in accordance with the authority's guidelines and parameters", Callahan added in an email response. Fares start as low as $59 one way. Representatives said these prices will not be available for all flights.

Allegiant's Memphis-Los Angeles route began as seasonal service in 2016 before being added as a year-round route a year ago.

"We applaud Allegiant for adding Nashville to its offerings out of Richmond International Airport", said Aubrey M. Stanley, chairman, Capital Region Airport Commission.
