·1 min read

Local residents looking to fly directly to Wisconsin won’t have to head toward Tampa or St. Pete as the nearest option for a flight.

A new nonstop route to America’s Dairyland was announced Tuesday out of the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport, according to a news release.

The route from Allegiant begins March 11, 2022 and goes to Appleton International Airport (ATW) in Appleton, Wisconsin, which is located to the north of Lake Winnebago.

It’s the first nonstop route to Wisconsin from SRQ, according to a destination and routes list the Herald previously reported.

One-way fares on the new Allegiant route is as low as $59, the news release said.

The addition marks the 53rd destination available at SRQ, which is one of the fastest-growing airports in the United States.

“These routes will connect our customers to premier destinations in Arizona and Florida just in time for Spring break,” said Drew Wells, Allegiant’s senior vice president of revenue and planning, in the news release. “Whether travelers are looking to explore the desert southwest or take in the beaches of Florida, we’ve got the flights for them — free from the hassle of stops and layovers – at a price they can afford.”

Allegiant also added routes to Appleton from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and Denver International Airport beginning March 10 and 11, respectively.
