New Toledo to Fort Myers jet service set to start in February

Posted: Updated:

Allegiant Air announced Wednesday, a new nonstop jet service between Toledo, Ohio and Fort Myers / Punta Gorda, via Punta Gorda Airport (PGD).

Flights will begin Feb. 16, 2013 and will begin with fares at $89.99* one way.

"We are pleased to bring a new affordable and convenient travel option for Toledo residents," said Andrew C. Levy, Allegiant Travel Company President. "We are confident the community will appreciate the value of flying nonstop to Southwest Florida and the value of bundling their air, hotel and car rental reservation together."

The new flights will operate twice weekly between Toledo Express Airport (TOL) and Punta Gorda Airport (PGD). Fort Myers / Punta Gorda will be the third nonstop destination served by Allegiant out of Toledo Express Airport.

"We are very excited that Allegiant has added the Fort Myers / Punta Gorda flight out of Toledo Express Airport. The Fort Myers area has always been a top vacation destination for residents of northwest Ohio and we're thrilled to bring this route back to the traveling community," said Paul Toth, President and CEO for the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority.
