Allegiant's new Cincinnati to St. Pete-Clearwater nonstop now year-round

CLEARWATER — One of Allegiant Air's newest routes is a nonstop flight from Cincinnati to St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport. It became so popular so quickly that the airline announced Monday that it decided to extend the service year-round.

The discount carrier announced last month that it would start nonstop service from Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport to St. Pete-Clearwater International on May 15 for the summer season.

But "overwhelming" demand for seats on that flight has already convinced Allegiant to offer the route year-round. The flights will run every Sunday and Thursday. The flight is set to depart St. Pete-Clearwater at 12:50 p.m. and arrive in Cincinnati at 3:01 p.m. The return flight is scheduled to leave Cincinnati at 3:46 p.m. and arrive at St. Pete-Clearwater at 5:51 p.m.

That will be the flight schedule until Oct. 28. Allegiant said it would announce a new holiday schedule later this spring.

"We have seen such strong demand since we announced this route and, as we always try to do, we have reacted to that demand by adding more flights year-round," said Andrew Levy, the president and chief operating officer of Allegiant, said in a prepared statement.
