Low-cost airline leader Allegiant is adding a new nonstop flight from Charlotte County to Bangor, Maine. 

“We’re excited that Allegiant will be connecting thousands of Southwest Floridians to Bangor, Maine with new nonstop flights,” Punta Gorda Airport CEO James Parish says in the statement. “We look forward to welcoming new friends from the north to our harborside hometown, sunny beaches and outdoor paradise.”

The new route begins Nov. 16, according to a statement. The airline, as it often does with new routes, is offering one-way fares, as low as $70, to celebrate the new destination. 

Allegiant, which is also building the Sunseeker Resort Charlotte Harbor in Charlotte County, a $695 million mega-resort project, announced expanded routes in other markets, including Fort Lauderdale and Orlando.  

“We continue to see historically high demand from leisure travelers, so we are thrilled to add these routes to our network and build on the success we’ve had in these markets,” says Drew Wells, Allegiant’s senior vice president and chief revenue officer, in the release. “As travelers look for warm winter getaways and a chance to connect with family and friends, we know they will appreciate the low-cost, nonstop options offered by Allegiant.
