IMPERIAL, Pa. (AP) - Allegiant Air is adding flights to Orlando, Florida from Pittsburgh International Airport, where the low-cost carrier also plans to base a passenger plane and add 40 jobs.
The airline will add twice-weekly flights to Orlando’s Sanford International Airport starting Nov. 5. The airline already offers Pittsburgh flights to three other Florida destinations - Punta Gorda, Jacksonville and Tampa-St. Petersburg - along with Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
On Christmas Eve, the Las-Vegas based airline will begin basing a 156-seat Airbus at Pittsburgh International.
Allegiant spokesman Justin Ralenkotter says that means up to 40 pilots, flight attendants and other staff will be offered jobs in Pittsburgh.
Once the Orlando flights are added, Allegiant will have a dozen weekly flights out of Pittsburgh.
The Orlando flights will cost as little as $49, one-way.
