New Eastern Iowa Airport Flight
CEDAR RAPIDS (CBS 2/FOX 28) --
Allegiant Airlines started a non-stop flight from the Eastern Iowa Airport to Punta Gorda, Florida today (December 18th).
Introductory fares go as low as $95 for a one-way ticket.
Officials say they're excited to add the jet service.
"This is a big plus for us. We recently reached our one millionth passenger mark this year for the first time since 2007, so this type of announcement always helps in the long run for us," said Time Bradshaw, airport director.
The new flight will operate twice a week.
Allegiant also offers non-stop flights to Las Vegas, Phoenix, Orlando, and Tampa Bay.
