Allegiant Air is launching twice-weekly service between Salisbury in Maryland and Orlando Sanford International Airport on February 16.

The carrier will introduce the new service to Maryland’s Eastern Shore with one-way fares from $59.99 plus government fees.


Allegiant Air’s introductory fare on the route is not available on all flights and must be purchased by December 28, for travel by May 15, 2012.

As of November 2011, Allegiant Air operated 74 aircraft of the McDonnell Douglas MD-80 family and on November 11 SAS Group announced it had agreed to sell Allegiant Air another 13 MD-80s. In addition to being the only U.S. carrier operating four MD-80 models (the MD-82, MD-83, MD-87 and MD-88), Allegiant Air has also purchased six Boeing 757-200s, with which it plans to serve Hawaii from the U.S. mainland

A so-called “convenience” fee of $10.00 per segment, per passenger is included in the introductory one-way fare. A fee of $14.99 per segment, will apply when purchased through Allegiant Air call centers. Purchases made at any Allegiant airport ticket office will not incur a convenience or call center fee.

According to Allegiant Air, Salisbury-Ocean City Wicomico Regional Airport is the only airport with scheduled airline service on the Delmarva Peninsula and therefore is the hub of air transportation for the whole region.

Allegiant Air says it will bring the only non-stop, commercial air service from the peninsula to central Florida, and its parent Allegiant Travel Company will offer Florida vacation packages along with the service.

“Our new partnership with Allegiant gives families a much-welcome link to America’s favorite tourist destination,” said Wicomico County Executive Rick Pollitt. “We welcome Allegiant with open arms and look forward to many years of mutually rewarding experiences.”

Allegiant will operate twice-weekly flights between Salisbury-Ocean City Wicomico Regional Airport (SBY) and Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB) on Thursdays and Sundays. For flight times, visit www.allegiant.com.

Reservations can be made on the airline’s website or by calling the company’s travel reservations staff at 702-505-8888.
