“Orlando is one of the top destinations for Shreveport-Bossier and Ark-La-Tex residents. Having nonstop service and low fares is extremely important,” says Shreveport Mayor Cedric B. Glover. “We are truly excited to have Allegiant build on their success in our community and restart Orlando service.”

“Allegiant’s low fares and great service attract customers from throughout the Ark-La-Tex Region in order to use Shreveport Regional Airport,” remarks Keith Gamble, chairman of the Shreveport Airport Authority. “Having Allegiant restart Orlando service will help the airport this summer with increased traffic and by adding another nonstop and extremely affordable destination.”
