I will be excited to se Allegiant fly from Springfield, Missouri to Punta Gorda Florida or Ft. Myers Beach, Florida?
Soon, I have a friend who lives in Springfield and it is terribly expensive to get out of Springfield, Missouri to Ft. Myers Beach, Florida to visit me.
Thank you Linda. I think Allegiant may be the next carrier to add some of the former Direct Air routes to places like Punta Gorda and Lakeland (Orlando South) since they are serving some of the same cities to Sanford (Orlando North) and St. Petersburg (Tampa).
