ERLANGER, Ky. (April 29, 2016) ― Allegiant Air christened new nonstop service from CVG to Baltimore/Washington D.C. today. The inaugural flight was celebrated this morning with a ceremonial ribbon cutting for good luck and each passenger aboard the flight received a special gift as they boarded the plane.
“We’re very excited to launch our service to Washington D.C. from Cincinnati, a community that has truly embraced the low-cost travel opportunities that Allegiant has to offer,” said Jude Bricker, Allegiant chief operating officer. “Washington D.C. is a new destination for Allegiant, and it’s only fitting that travelers in our fastest-growing market of Cincinnati are one of the first cities to use this nonstop service.”
Allegiant began service out of CVG in February 2014 and will now operate 51 flights a week to 13 different destinations.
“Allegiant’s growth at CVG over the past two years has been tremendous,” said Candace McGraw, CEO of CVG. “Washington D.C./Baltimore is a very popular destination for business and leisure travel, and we’re excited that Allegiant has added this low-cost option.”
