Allegiant Announces Nonstop, Travel Service Between Moline/Quad Cities And Tampa Bay

MOLINE, Ill., Jan. 5, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Allegiant (Nasdaq:ALGT), today announces low-cost, nonstop travel service between Moline/Quad Cities, Ill., and the Tampa Bay, Fla., area beginning Feb. 18, 2011. The company, known for its exceptional travel deals, is offering its customers fares between the two cities for as low as $64.99* one-way.

"We're pleased to announce yet another affordable and convenient way for our customers to get away," Andrew C. Levy, Allegiant Travel Company President, said. "We are confident the Moline/Quad Cities community will appreciate the value of flying nonstop to the Tampa Bay area and the great deals we offer on hotels and car rentals."

"I am thrilled Allegiant is continuing to expand in the Quad Cities by adding nonstop service to the Tampa/St. Petersburg area," Bruce Carter, Director of Aviation for the Quad City International Airport, said. "The Tampa/St. Pete area has some of the most popular beaches in Florida and will be a great vacation destination.  With the addition of these flights, the QCIA will now have 12 nonstop destinations—more than ever before in the history of the airport."

The new flights will operate twice weekly between Quad City International Airport (MLI) and St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport ( PIE), with service Monday and Friday. Flights will depart Moline/Quad Cities at 5:40 p.m. arriving in the Tampa Bay area at 9:10 p.m. Flights leaving the Tampa Bay area will depart at 3:20 p.m. arriving in Moline/Quad Cities at 5 p.m. (all flight times are local). The carrier will utilize a full-size, 150-seat MD-80 jet aircraft on the route. The company also offers nonstop service from Moline/Quad Cities to Las Vegas and Phoenix-Mesa, Ariz.

With an average 361 days of sunshine each year, the St. Petersburg-Clearwater area is considered the most popular vacation destination on Florida's West Coast. The area was named among the top beaches in the United States and is one of a few destinations to have received the "Blue Wave Award" from the Clean Beaches Council. In addition to pristine beaches, visitors are within minutes of shopping, amazing golf courses and award-winning resort and dining experiences.
