Las Vegas-based Allegiant Air will start nonstop service from the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport to two Florida locations in February.
Officials say nonstop service to Orlando Sanford Airport will begin Feb. 12. Nonstop service to Ft. Myers/Punta Gorda Airport will begin Feb. 14.
The carrier says it will provide service on a 166-seat jet two days a week from the Cincinnati airport to Orlando, on Wednesday and Saturday. It will offer two-day-a-week service to Ft. Myers/Punta Gorda on Monday and Friday.
The Cincinnati airport's chief executive officer says Orlando and southwest Florida have been popular destinations for area passengers.
The airline is a unit of Allegiant Travel Co.
