Salisbury-Orlando Airport Service Nixed

SALISBURY — Less than a year after it began the service, Allegiant Air last week announced it was no longer offering flights from the Salisbury-Ocean City-Wicomico Regional Airport.

Last February, Allegiant Air announced it was beginning low-cost, non-stop flights from Salisbury to Orlando, Fla. The new flights operated twice weekly to Orlando Sanford International Airport and carried as many as 150 passengers on each flight. The company offered fares as low as $69.99 one way between the two cities and also offered incentives such as hotel stays for passengers booking the flights.

However, last week Allegiant Air abruptly announced it was discontinuing the service.

“We are always disappointed to end service in a market,” said Allegiant Travel Company Manager of Airports Eric Fletcher. “We thank Salisbury-Ocean City Wicomico Regional Airport for their partnership and apologize to any travelers who are inconvenienced by this decision.”

The carrier’s last day of service will be Jan. 5. Customers with reservations beyond that date will be contacted directly by Allegiant for a full refund.
