Allegiant resumes nonstop flight to Punta Gorda from Dayton

It’s back! The seasonal break is over, and the nonstop from Dayton International Airport (DAY) to Punta Gorda/Fort Myers (PGD) is flying once again. Allegiant Air restarts operation of the service on November 14, 2019, with one-way tickets as low as 57 dollars. The flight will operate each Thursday and Sunday, departing at 6:15 p.m. and arriving in Punta Gorda at 8:34 p.m.

April of 2019 marked the beginning of Allegiant Air’s seasonal Dayton service. Much of Allegiant’s service operates on a seasonal basis in other markets as well. This allows the airline to cater to the price-sensitive, leisure traveler and fly when the demand is high.

“We are very glad to see the Allegiant flight resume service just in time to give our travelers a quick, warm, and affordable break in the Florida sunshine”, said Gil Turner, interim director at the Dayton International Airport.

Along Florida’s East Coast, Punta Gorda, and the Punta Gorda/Fort Myers Airport, are tucked in a picturesque estuary preserve. An idyllic city with a hometown feel, visitors enjoy a vacation adventure of cycling, sailing, hiking, and fishing. Of course, travelers can always escape the action and simply enjoy relaxing at Englewood Beach. With highs in the mid-80s predicted for Punta Gorda this week, the flight has returned just in time to whisk Dayton-area residents away from the Arctic chill.

From Dayton, Allegiant Airlines also flies to Orlando/Sanford and Tampa/St. Petersburg. These markets are also flown seasonally and will resume service in February 2020, just in time for spring break. All three of the nonstop Allegiant flights will operate twice weekly until their next scheduled hiatus in August 2020.
