Low-cost carrier Allegiant Air will launch air service between Owensboro and Orlando, Fla., beginning Feb. 18.
Flights between Owensboro-Daviess County Regional County Airport and Orlando Sanford International Airport (located midway between Orlando and Daytona Beach), will operate twice weekly, with service on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Allegiant will utilize 150-seat MD-80 jets on the route.
Regular one-way fares on the route will start at $89.
“Not only will these added flights help better meet the travel needs of those living in and around Daviess County, but this new partnership will also provide an economic boost to the region by bringing in more jobs and tourism,” said U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning, who supported the runway extension project that made Allegiant service possible at Owensboro.
