BELLEVILLE — Air traffic continues to build at MidAmerica St. Louis Airport, where area travelers can take advantage of the region’s only direct flights to Destin, Fla., starting today.
This is the first non-stop service ever offered from St. Louis to Destin, one of the most popular vacation destinations for area residents. Allegiant’s inaugural flight to Destin and Fort Walton Beach comes just days after the airline launched its regular service from MidAmerica Airport to Jacksonville, Fla., further underscoring that Allegiant is a committed community partner desiring to serve the region with non-stop, low-cost flights.
Named the “Emerald Coast” for its green waters and white sand, Destin and Fort Walton Beach are among Florida’s fastest-growing beach destinations. When tourists are not enjoying the region’s beaches, they can likely be found dining at one of the area’s many eateries, where Florida’s largest fishing fleet brings in fresh seafood daily. Family-friendly attractions such as helicopter tours and harbor cruises also keep visitors on the move. The new seasonal, direct flights will depart three times weekly through Sept. 4.
Jacksonville, positioned along the Atlantic coast, is another getaway waiting to be explored. Whether you are looking to discover the undiscovered, reconnect with family or be inspired by the city’s cultural offerings, unique cuisine or vivid sunrises, anything is possible in Jacksonville. As of May 27, 2016, the seasonal flights are operating twice weekly, flying nonstop between MidAmerica St. Louis Airport (BLV) and Jacksonville International Airport (JAX).
Flight days, times and the lowest fares can be found only at Allegiant.com, where St. Louis-area travelers can book their entire vacation to either destination for less.
