Austin airport getting nonstops to Indianapolis, Fort Walton Beach


Allegiant Air continues to grow its presence at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, with plans to add nonstop flights to two more destinations.

The discount carrier said Tuesday it will start service to Indianapolis, Ind., and Destin/Fort Walton Beach, Fla., this year.

The Destin/Fort Walton Beach flights will be seasonal, beginning May 4, while Indianapolis service will be year-round, debuting May 19.

“Allegiant is pleased to announce this new service, giving the people of Destin and Indianapolis their only nonstop option to Austin,” Jude Bricker, Allegiant’s chief operating officer, said in a written statement. “We look forward to the new visitors and continued economic growth this service will bring to the Live Music Capital of the World.”

Allegiant currently offers nonstops from Austin to Albuquerque, N.M.; Cincinnati, Ohio; Cleveland; Daytona Beach, Fla.; Las Vegas; Orlando; Memphis, Tenn.; Pittsburgh; and Tampa, Fla.

“Allegiant’s continued growth, connecting two new, nonstop destinations to Austin, is welcomed,” said Jim Smith, Austin-Bergstrom International Airport’s executive director. “This means new visitors to Central Texas and, for our Central Texas-based travelers, easy, ultra-low fare flights to enjoy the white beaches of Destin and the Hoosier hospitality of Indianapolis.”
