Allegiant announces today new seasonal, nonstop jet service between Columbus and Southwest Florida via Punta Gorda Airport beginning Feb. 13, 2014, just in time for spring vacation travel. To celebrate, the company, known for its exceptional travel deals, will introduce the new service with special promotional one-way fares as low as $86*.
“We are pleased to offer an affordable and convenient travel option for Columbus travelers looking to escape to Southwest Florida for their spring vacation,” said Andrew C. Levy, Allegiant Travel Company President. “We are confident the community will appreciate the convenience of flying nonstop to Punta Gorda and the value of bundling their air, hotel and car rental reservations together through us.”
The new flights will operate twice weekly during the Spring Break season between Rickenbacker International Airport (LCK) and Punta Gorda Airport (PGD), beginning Feb. 13, 2014. Columbus travelers can take advantage of everyday low fares and save even more when they book air, hotel and car reservations together.

Catering perfectly to a personal, romantic or family getaway, the Southwest Florida Coast destination features exquisite beach-front dining, exotic wildlife and a wide variety of recreation in the warm, pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Punta Gorda Airport is centrally located midway between the white-sand beaches of Fort Myers shore and Sarasota’s tropical island communities. Allegiant partners with many of the area’s most exciting hotel properties, provides low-cost car rental service through its partnership with Alamo Rent a Car, and offers great deals on activities such as dinner and ocean exploration cruises.
