New Routes Start Service from Jacksonville International Airport

Allegiant began flights to Louisville, Kentucky Friday and will begin flights to Norfolk Virginia June 14 with introductory rates as low as $54 one way.

With the new routes, announced in April, Allegiant (Nasdaq: ALGT) will offer flights to eight destinations from Jacksonville. The two seasonal routes are expected to draw 6,000 visitors to the area each year.

“We’re excited to grow again in Jacksonville with two new flights to Louisville and Norfolk,” Drew Wells, Allegiant vice president of planning and revenue, said in a statement. “There is great demand for travel between these two cities and Jacksonville, and we know travelers will love having nonstop, affordable service to explore Florida’s east coast.”

Jacksonville International Airport has added a slew of new destinations in recent months. Frontier Airlines announced two new routes in February, six new Frontier routes in May and another route shortly thereafter. Southwest Airlines also expanded its service from Jacksonville in September.

“This year Jacksonville International Airport has experienced more enplanements in the first five months of the year than in any similar period over the last eight years and we are proud to have Allegiant as an integral part of this growth,” Michael Stewart, JIA director of external affairs, said in a statement. “We strongly encourage the northeast Florida community to support all of Allegiant’s nonstop service.”

About 1.7 million passengers have traveled through JIA in the first seven months of its fiscal year.
