Allegiant Air's nonstop year-round flights from Orlando Sanford International Airport will kick off May 30, the airport announced Wednesday.

The new Allegiant flights will begin service the same day Southwest Airlines is scheduled to end service in Flint.

The flights will operate on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

One-way fares on the new route will be as low as $52. They must be booked by Thursday to get the discount fares.

Allegiant added the service to "meet the demand that exists in the market", Christina Callahan, executive director of Syracuse Hancock International Airport, tells BJNN.

"We are thrilled that Allegiant continues to expand their air service to Myrtle Beach", said Brad Dean, president and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce.

That includes seasonal flights from Portland, Oregon to Orlando International Airport this summer on Sun Country Airlines, officials said.

Las Vegas-based Allegiant (NASDAQ: ALGT) is focused on linking travelers to world-class leisure destinations. It also offers flights to Tampa/ St. Petersburg, Fla., Myrtle Beach, S.C. and Fort Lauderdale.

"It's helping the airport grow and more importantly it's giving those options to people to fly locally instead of driving and flying out of a larger airport because we really do have very good connectivity now", Stephens said.

The Charlotte County Airport Authority (CCAA) agrees that Nashville is an excellent destination to add to Allegiant's growing number of non-stop routes from Punta Gorda.
