SOUTH BEND – Flights from South Bend to a vacation spot in Southwest Florida start today.
Allegiant Air now offers a direct flight from South Bend Regional Airport to Punta Gorda, Florida. That's near Fort Myers.
Allegiant says fares will start as low as $95 one way, but that's a starting price and not everyone will be able to get it.
“We have grown a lot in South Bend since we introduced service to Las Vegas in 2005 and have been very pleased with how popular our vacation offerings have been with area residents,” said Allegiant President Andrew Levy. “We’re excited to offer yet another affordable and convenient way for South Bend residents to get away to Florida, and we are confident the community will appreciate the value of flying nonstop to Southwest Florida and the great deals we offer on vacation packages.”
The flights will be available twice a week. The first one takes off at 1:20 Wednesday afternoon.
