DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Allegiant announced Thursday they will expand service to Dayton International Airport.

In a press release on the Allegiant website plans for the expansion are outlined.

They include nine new routes and service to two new cities, Dayton and Flint, Michigan.

These nine new routes will offer millions of travelers brand-new options to escape to a warm destination this winter and spring.”

The new routes from Dayton include year-round nonstop service to St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport beginning on April 13, and flights to Orlando-Sanford International Airport beginning April 14.
