Allegiant Air, the airline that will launch service from the Greater Rochester International Airport (ROC) to Ft. Lauderdale (FLL), Florida, beginning Oct. 9, will also begin new, non-stop service from Rochester to the Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB) beginning Nov. 13, county officials stated.
According to a county press release, in 2014, 207 passengers traveled daily between Rochester and Orlando International Airport (MCO).
“Monroe County is thrilled that Allegiant is already expanding in Rochester with new non-stop service from ROC to Orlando Sanford International Airport,” Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks said. “Orlando is the number one destination for Rochester area travelers and the addition of this non-stop service means more seats, options and affordable air travel opportunities for area passengers.”
Allegiant plans to use an MD-80 or Airbus A320 aircraft for the new Orlando/Sanford (SFB) service twice weekly, which means approximately 340 more seats per week for area travelers to Orlando.
