Allegiant Announces Seasonal Travel Service Between Shreveport And Orlando

SHREVEPORT, La., Feb. 22, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Allegiant (Nasdaq:ALGT) today announces it is resuming nonstop seasonal travel service between Shreveport, La., and Orlando, Fla., via Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB). The seasonal service will begin May 19. The company, known for its exceptional travel deals, is offering fares as low as $49.99* one-way between both cities. Guaranteeing the lowest prices on its hotel packages, customers will also save an additional $20* off their air when they book with an Allegiant preferred hotel.

"We're pleased to again offer an affordable and convenient way for our customers to get away this summer," Andrew C. Levy, Allegiant Travel Company President, said. "We are confident the Shreveport-Bossier area will appreciate the value of flying nonstop to Orlando and the great deals we offer on hotels and car rentals."

"Orlando is one of the top destinations for Shreveport-Bossier and Ark-La-Tex residents. Having nonstop service and low fares is extremely important," said Shreveport Mayor Cedric B. Glover. "We are truly excited to have Allegiant build on their success in our community and restart Orlando service."

Shreveport Airport Authority Chairman Keith Gamble said having Allegiant renew their commitment to Orlando service is great news for Shreveport Regional Airport.

"Allegiant's low fares and great service attract customers from throughout the Ark-La-Tex Region in order to use Shreveport Regional Airport," said Mr. Gamble. "Having Allegiant restart Orlando service will help the airport this summer with increased traffic and by adding another nonstop and extremely affordable destination."

The new flights will operate twice weekly between the Shreveport Regional Airport (SHV) and Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB) with service Thursday and Sunday. Flights will depart Shreveport at 4:25 p.m. arriving in Orlando-Sanford at 7:30 p.m. Flights leaving Orlando-Sanford will depart at 2:25 p.m. arriving in Shreveport at 3:45 p.m. (all flight times are local). The company began nonstop service to Las Vegas Jan. 18, 2006. 

With plenty of shopping, dining, outdoor activities and entertainment, Orlando offers vacationers the perfect getaway. Located in the heart of Central Florida, Orlando is home to the world's most exciting theme parks including Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and SeaWorld. Orlando's famous International Drive is more than 10 miles long and features more than 100 hotels, 450 stores, several attractions and two major outlet malls. Orlando is also home to more than 175 golf courses, many of which were designed by pro golfers such as Greg Norman, Tom Watson, Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus.
