FLINT, MI--Allegiant Air is adding two new nonstop destinations from Flint Bishop International Airport.
Starting June 6, Allegiant is making nonstop flights to South Carolina, home of the resort areas of Myrtle Beach. On October 5, Allegiant will add its fifth destination with nonstop flights from Flint to Ft. Lauderdale offered twice per week. Allegiant tickets can only be bought online at allegiant.com.
“This is our fourth nonstop flight from Allegiant and the first one not going to Florida. So many people from Southeast Michigan have second homes in Myrtle Beach that we know this route will be very popular with them, as well as with the golfer and beach-going sets,” said Airport Director Craig Williams.
Allegiant also flies nonstop from Flint to Orlando-Sanford, Ft. Myers-Punta Gordo, and Tampa Bay-St. Pete.
Last year, about 10 percent of Bishop Airport passengers flew on Allegiant, which has grown dramatically in Flint since launching flights in 2016. The low-cost airline started out with 152 flights that first year in Flint and grew to 259 flights in 2017. In May 2018, Allegiant nationwide increased its number of passengers by 12 percent to 1.1 million.
