Budget carrier Allegiant Air has announced it will be launching direct flights to three destinations in the United States from Providence’s T.F. Green Airport. The new destinations where biweekly service would be operated include Tampa, Fort Myers and Cincinnati. The airline will be launching nonstop flights to Cincinnati starting from November 17, 2017. Providence will now become Allegiant Air’s third route in New England. The other routes here being served by the airline include Bangor and Portsmouth.
Apart from Allegiant Air, flights from Providence have also been recently announced by Frontier Airlines and Norwegian. The announcement for the launching of new flights has come at a time when runway expansion is already being undertaken at T.F. Green Airport.
Lukas Johnson, Senior Vice President of Commercial at Allegiant Air, said, “The company is elated that it has been able to bring ultra-low-cost travel for customers planning to take flights out of Providence. The airline’s move is going to benefit New England travelers greatly with convenient, nonstop flights to three key domestic destinations in the U.S.”
Meanwhile, media reports also said that Allegiant Air will introduce new services to some more U.S. destinations as well from Providence this fall. Nonstop flights to Punta Gorda in southwest Florida would be launched from September 28, while flights to St. Petersburg will be operational from October 27 onwards this year.
Earlier, Frontier Airlines had announced that it would be launching flights to two new domestic routes from Providence. The airline will start operating flights to Orlando and Denver effective from August 14, 2017. The service to both destinations will operate twice weekly. European budget carrier Norwegian has also launched nonstop flights to Scotland from Providence in June this year. Norway’s low-cost carrier has also announced it will be launching two new routes to the French Caribbean as well this fall.
