Allegiant Airlines has launched new non-stop service between Rochester and Southwest Florida.

Airline officials and Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo announced on Friday that Allegiant has started its new, year-round route between the Greater Rochester International Airport and the Punta Gorda Airport.

The new service was first announced over the summer, and the new route will operate twice a week, offering about 340 seats per week.

Allegiant started service to Rochester in 2015, and also offers twice-weekly, non-stop service to Orlando.
