Allegiant Air launches Orlando route from St Louis
Allegiant Air returned to MidAmerica St. Louis, IL (BLV) on 7 November when the airline resumed services from Orlando Sanford, FL (SFB). The secondary airport for St Louis had been left without scheduled commercial services when Allegiant pulled out at the beginning of 2009. The airline last operated the route from Sanford in August 2008. Twice-weekly flights, on Thursdays and Sundays, are now operated with the airline’s MD80 aircraft. Indirect competition between Lambert-St. Louis and Orlando International comes from Southwest’s 29 flights a week.
