Passenger air service between the Quad City International Airport, Moline, IL and Punta Gorda, FL, serving passengers to the Ft. Myers and surrounding areas, will resume with twice per week nonstop flights on Allegiant beginning Friday December 15th. The flights will be on Mondays and Fridays.
Director of Aviation Bruce Carter said “We are aware of how strongly the passengers from our regional area missed this service when it wasn’t available this past Fall and Winter. We are extremely pleased that Allegiant has worked with us to ensure this service would return to serve our passengers on a seasonal basis from the Quad Cities and surrounding areas.” Carter adds, “We know that the snowbirds use this convenient service, as well as their friends and family who like to visit them. We are happy to announce that once again, travelers can fly from the Quad Cities.”
“We are excited to return our affordable, nonstop flights between the Quad Cities and Southwest Florida,” said Lukas Johnson, Allegiant senior vice president of commercial. “We’re excited to give Quad City travelers an ultra-affordable way to enjoy everything the Fort Myers area has to offer.”
Allegiant flights are available for booking all five nonstop destinations from the Quad Cities through February 13, 2018, at Allegiant.com. Travelers may also contact their travel agent or the airline. The Quad Cities first saw the Allegiant Punta Gorda flights in Fall of 2013. The twice-weekly flights were available seasonally in fall and winter months. In 2016, the seasonality was reduced to February-April, 2016.
