Allegiant Offers More Flights from Bangor 

At a time when most airlines are cutting

back flights, low-fare carrier Allegiant Air is expanding its

flight schedule out of Maine.

Allegiant last year began offering nonstop jet service between

Bangor International Airport and Sanford, Fla., near Orlando.

Airport officials say Allegiant will offer additional flights

during the peak winter season from February through May.

Since its first flight out of Bangor a year ago, Allegiant has

carried nearly 32,000 customers between Maine and Florida.
