Allegiant Air announced on Tuesday that it will fly a fifth flight out of the Des Moines International Airport and also a flight out of the Cedar Rapids Airport.

A non-stop flight from Des Moines to Punta Gorda Airport near Fort Meyers, Florida will start on December 19th, 2013. One-way tickets from Des Moines are starting at $119.00.

However, tickets from Cedar Rapids are starting at $99.00 each way if purchased by August 6th and that flight will begin one day earlier than Des Moines.  

"We've been working with Allegiant on this particular destination because it's where people want to go. Our passengers will enjoy the opportunity to take a non–stop to Florida, verses connecting somewhere else," said Don Smithey, Executive Director of Des Moines International Airport Authority.

Some other airlines are also planning on adding flights that will be announced later this fall.
