Allegiant starts new nonstop St. Pete service

St. Pete International Airport adds two flights to Asheville, N.C., a week.

ST. PETE - Las Vegas-based Allegiant Air now offers nonstop jet service between St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport (PIE) and Asheville Regional Airport (AVL), according to a news release.

“Our vacation packages and nonstop service to Orlando and Fort Lauderdale have been very popular with area residents. We are confident the community will appreciate the convenience of flying nonstop to Tampa / St. Pete and the value of bundling their air, hotel and car rental reservation together,” says Allegiant Travel Co. President Andrew C. Levy, in the release.

The flights will run two times a week, Thursdays and Sundays departing at 5:10 p.m. from PIE. Allegiant is also offering an introductory fare of $79.99 one way until June 13 for travel by Oct. 28.

A low-cost carrier, Allegiant specializes in serving smaller, underserved U.S. cities to vacation destinations such as Florida and Hawaii. According to a recent Wall Street Journal article, the strategy has led the airline to be the most profitable in America.
