Allegiant Announces New Service Between BWI Marshall Airport and Sarasota, Florida

Starting February 22nd, Allegiant Adds Flights to Spring Training Home of
the Baltimore Orioles

Allegiant Air announced today that it will offer nonstop service between
Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport and Sarasota, Florida. The new
year-round flights are scheduled to begin on February 22, 2019. Allegiant’s nonstop service will
operate twice per week between BWI Marshall Airport and Sarasota/Bradenton International
Airport.
“Allegiant will offer our customers ultra-low-cost flights to Sarasota’s beautiful white
sand beaches and renowned cultural attractions,” said Ricky Smith, Executive Director of BWI
Marshall Airport. “Local baseball fans will celebrate quick, easy flights to the spring training
home of our Baltimore Orioles. We welcome the added service from our partners at Allegiant.”
Allegiant Air first started service at BWI Marshall in April 2016. The airline’s new
flights between BWI Marshall Airport and Sarasota will be operated with Airbus A320 aircraft.
“We’re thrilled to grow again in the Baltimore area,” said Drew Wells, Allegiant vice
president of planning and revenue. “We’re sure that travelers in the Washington D.C. and
Baltimore area will enjoy getting away to beautiful Sarasota on these convenient, nonstop, ultralow-cost
flights.”
BWI Marshall continues to set records for passenger traffic, with new airlines and flights
to new markets. The airport has posted strong growth, with new monthly passenger records in
37 of the past 38 months through August 2018. In January, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan
announced a new report which revealed that BWI Marshall Airport produces a total economic
impact of $9.3 billion. The airport and visitors generate and support more than 106,000 jobs
throughout the region.
