“Allegiant is known for providing affordable flights to many popular destinations,” said Airport Director Terrence Slaybaugh. “By offering this new flight to Punta Gorda, Allegiant is able to give travelers even more options at the Dayton International Airport when they want to get away.”
The first flight from Dayton to Punta Gorda will take place at 8:33 p.m. on Thursday, November 17, so there is still plenty of time to book tickets and escape the frosty air.
The inaugural flight will be sent off in the traditional DAY airport manner, with balloons, refreshments and giveaways for passengers, along with a water cannon salute from the airport’s fire engines.
“We like to send off new flights in a fun way,” Slaybaugh said. “It’s our way of letting passengers know they are a part of something special at the Dayton Airport.”
The new nonstop flights will operate twice weekly out of Dayton.
