Low-fare airline Allegiant has announced two new non-stop routes to its newest city – Nashville (BNA) – from New York and Tampa.
“We’re very excited to continue growth in our newest Allegiant city,” said Lukas Johnson, Allegiant senior vice-president of commercial. “Not only will Nashville travellers enjoy visiting Upstate New York and beautiful Tampa Bay, but we’re sure folks in those cities will be eager to visit Music City, as well.”
The airport, which serves a number of low-fare airlines, will see a new year-round route from the Tampa area via St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport beginning in June 2018.
Allegiant will also fly a new seasonal service to Nashville via Syracuse Hancock International Airport in New York state, also beginning in June. Both routes will operate twice weekly.
“We are delighted our newest airline partner, Allegiant, will be adding two additional non-stop routes at Nashville International Airport,” said Doug Kreulen, Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority president and CEO. “These new destinations offer more options, especially for leisure travel, and we look forward to Allegiant’s continued growth in the Nashville community.”
St. Pete-Clearwater Int’l airport director, Tom Jewsbury, said: “Nashville is one of the most requested destinations by our travellers. Now our customers can enjoy non-stop flights to the home of legendary country music venues.”
