Sarasota Bradenton International Airport has added a new nonstop flight destination, Allegiant Airlines announced Friday.

In the fall, Allegiant will add four new routes that will give its passengers from Minnesota, Ohio, and Utah a direct flight option to Florida.

For Sarasota and Bradenton, a new route to Minneapolis, Minnesota, starts Oct. 6.

“It is exciting to see Allegiant Air adding new nonstop service at SRQ,” airport CEO Rick Piccolo said in a news release. “Since March 2018, Allegiant has added over 30 nonstop destinations, providing low fares and convenient choices for our community and visitors.”

The airline will celebrate the opening of the new routes by discounting one-way ticket prices. Fares range from $38 to $79.

Travelers must buy their plane tickets by May 8 and use them by Feb. 13, 2023, for the cheaper rates.

Drew Wells, Allegiant’s senior vice president of revenue and planning, said, “We look forward to connecting vacationers from Minnesota and Ohio to popular coastal destinations in Florida.”
