Allegiant Air is beginning nonstop service between Youngstown-Warren, Ohio, and St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport on November 17.
The company will introduce the new service to the Northeastern Ohio and Western Pennsylvania region with fares from $64.99 one-way plus government taxes and fees and Allegiant Air’s almost-unavoidable “convenience” fees. The one-way introductory fare must be purchased by October 12 and is valid for travel through March 8, 2011 . Introductory fares are not available on all flights.
After the introductory-fare period, regular one-way fares on the route start from $79.99 plus taxes and fees. Reservations can be made at www.allegiant.com or by calling the company at 702-505-8888.
“We are thrilled to provide the Mahoning Valley community with nonstop scheduled service to the Tampa Bay – St. Petersburg, Fla. region from the Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport,” says Dan Dickten, director of aviation for the Western Reserve Port Authority. “St. Petersburg is among the top five destinations requested by the community. We look forward to successful flights to the Tampa Bay area and working with Allegiant in the future.”
The new flights will operate twice weekly between Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport (YNG) and St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport (PIE), with service on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Flights will depart YNG at 11:05 a.m. and arrive at PIE at 1:30 p.m. Flights leaving PIE will depart at 8 a.m. and land at YNG at 10:25 a.m. All flight times are local.
Allegiant Air will use 150-seat McDonnell Douglas MD-80s on the route. The company also offers nonstop service from Youngstown-Warren to Orlando, Florida and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
With an average 361 days of sunshine each year, the St. Petersburg-Clearwater area is considered the most popular vacation destination on Florida’s West Coast. The area was named among the top beaches in the United States and has received the “Blue Wave Award” from the Clean Beaches Council. In addition to pristine beaches, visitors are within minutes of shopping, golf courses, resorts and dining options.
