Beginning November 25, Allegiant will offer service from South Bend to Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport in Florida.

Allegiant Air is expanding its network ahead of the busy holiday travel period by adding 24 new seasonal and year-round nonstop routes that include a return to Palm Beach, Florida and Fort Collins, Colorado.

"As Allegiant continues to strengthen its presence at MidAmerica Airport and adds a new route to its roster of popular vacation destinations, we fully expect demand will continue to grow", he said. "We know area travelers will love having these convenient, affordable flights to get away to handsome southwest Florida".

The new flights are scheduled to operate twice weekly - on Sundays and Thursdays - and can be booked immediately for travel through April 2020, officials for the airline and airport said. As part of the announcement, Allegiant said it was offering one-way fares online starting at $69. "To have that service on Allegiant, with their fantastic ultra- low-priced fares and vacation packages, just makes it all the (more) sweeter".

Allegiant will now serve six cities from South Bend.
