Allegiant is to begin a new, nonstop jet service between Savannah, GA, and Fort Lauderdale, FL. on 18 November.
"We’re pleased to bring an affordable and convenient travel option to Savannah," declared Andrew Levy, Allegiant Travel Company president. "We are confident the residents of greater Savannah and the Hilton Head Island areas will appreciate the value of flying nonstop to Fort Lauderdale. We look forward to a very successful partnership with the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport and community officials."
The new flights will operate twice weekly between Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport (SAV) and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL), with service on Thursdays and Sundays. Flights will depart Savannah/Hilton Head at 11:05 and arrive in Fort Lauderdale at 12:30. Flights leaving Fort Lauderdale will take off at 09:00 and land at Savannah/Hilton Head at 10:25 (all times local). The carrier will use 150-seat MD-80s on the route.
