Allegiant Air announced Tuesday morning it is adding direct flights from South Bend Regional Airport to Punta Gorda, Florida – not far from Fort Myers.
The flights begin June 27 and will be available twice a week. Allegiant says fares will start as low as $95 one way, but that's a starting fair and not everyone will be able to get it.
Allegiant Air started in South Bend in 2005 with non-stop flights to Las Vegas. Since then it has also added flights to Mesa, Arizona, and Orlando and Clearwater, Florida.
