"We look forward to this new partnership with Allegiant Air, and we’re excited to welcome them to University Park Airport,” said airport director Bryan Rodgers. “Florida is a high-demand market for central Pennsylvania travelers, and now they’ll have convenient access to an ultra-low-cost carrier, from University Park Airport, providing nonstop service to two popular Florida destinations.”
“We’re very excited to bring our brand of convenient, friendly service to State College with these two routes, and we’re very grateful for the partnership of Penn State University,” Drew Wells, Allegiant vice president of planning and revenue, said in a news release.
“We’re certain that area travelers will love having an ultra-low-cost, nonstop option to get away to these popular Florida destinations — Orlando and Tampa.”
The new routes will be on Airbus 319 and Airbus 320, accommodating 150 to 177 passengers, with the four weekly flights adding more than 600 passengers a week departing from University Park Airport.
