Allegiant Air on Wednesday will begin its seasonal nonstop service from Wichita to Orlando, Fla.
The Las Vegas-based discount carrier will offer flights on Wednesdays and Saturdays from Wichita Eisenhower National Airport to Orlando-Sanford International Airport until Aug. 13.
In May 2007, Allegiant offered nonstop flights from Wichita to Orlando but ended that twice-a-week service in July 2008, citing rising fuel costs and poor performance.
It was the third airline around that same time to initiate and then end nonstop service from Wichita to Orlando. Delta Air Lines and the former AirTran Airways for a short time in 2006 offered Saturday-only flights to the city that’s home to Disney World.
