Allegiant began flying out of CVG to two destinations in Florida – Punta Gorda and Orlando – last month.

On Tuesday, Allegiant announced two new non-stop flights to Tampa-St. Petersburg, Florida and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The departures to Tampa-St. Pete will start May 15 and run seasonally through August 12.  Myrtle Beach service will start May 30.

Allegiant says a one-way ticket to either destination will cost as low as $59.

“We are thrilled to further expand our low-cost air travel product within Cincinnati to include Tampa Bay and Myrtle Beach,” said Andrew C. Levy, Allegiant Travel Company President and COO. “We have been operating for less than a month in Cincinnati and the community has already embraced our ultra-low-cost travel offerings. We are confident the community will appreciate the convenience of flying nonstop to these new destinations and the value of bundling their air, hotel and car rental reservation together.”

CVG CEO Candace McGraw says Allegiant’s quick expansion of adding flights to four vacation destinations in less than six months is a show of significant support from the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky community.

“Our passengers want to have fun in the sun and now they have even more low cost options on Allegiant,” McGraw said.
