Allegiant to offer non-stop flights from Louisville to Sarasota

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Flying from Louisville to your vacation destination on the Florida Gulf Coast will be easier.

Allegiant has announced a new nonstop flight to Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport. The flights begin November 25, the Monday of Thanksgiving week.

To celebrate the new service, Allegiant is offering one-way fares as low as $59 on the new route.

“We’re very excited about this additional growth in Louisville,” said Drew Wells, Allegiant vice president of planning and revenue, in a statement announcing the new service. “We know area travelers will take advantage of these convenient, affordable flights to get away to sunny southwest Florida this winter.”

The route, Allegiant’s 10th out of Louisville, will have twice weekly service to Sarasota with flights on Monday and Friday using a 186 seat Airbus A320.

“The addition of another nonstop flight is a testament to the great momentum happening at the Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport,” said Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer. “I applaud Allegiant Air for growing in Louisville and giving our residents more options for leisure travel.”
