KANSAS CITY, Mo. Nov. 12, 2015— Allegiant (NASDAQ: ALGT) today celebrates the start of nonstop, ultra-low-cost service from Kansas City to three Florida vacation destinations: Fort Myers / Punta Gorda, Orlando and Tampa / St. Pete. To celebrate its Kansas City debut, the company is offering one-way fares as low as $65*.

Today’s flight will link Kansas City with Tampa / St. Pete, flights to Fort Myers / Punta Gorda and Orlando will begin tomorrow, November 13. The addition of these new flights will offer Kansas City travelers more nonstop flights and lower fares to their favorite vacation destinations.

“We’re excited to welcome Kansas City to the Allegiant network,” said Jude Bricker, Allegiant Travel Company senior vice president of planning. “Florida is a popular vacation destination for Kansas City travelers, and we’re happy to provide a low-cost alternative to these top destinations for less.”
