SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The ultra-low cost carrier Allegiant Air is ending its direct service between Vermont’s Burlington International Airport and Sanford, Florida.

Officials at the Vermont airport announced Monday that Allegiant Air will end its twice-weekly direct flights between Vermont and Florida in March.

About 12,000 passengers a year boarded Allegiant aircraft for the flights to Florida.

Burlington airport officials say they don’t know if the departure of Allegiant Air will mean the loss of all 12,000 passengers because a number of other airlines offer service to Florida with one stop.

The airport announced the departure of Allegiant Air at the same time it noted the signing of a new, five-year lease for the airlines that will continue to serve Burlington.
