CLEVELAND — Allegiant Air is making a change to its service in Northeast Ohio. The airline announced on Tuesday that it is adding new nonstop routes from Akron-Canton Airport (CAK) to several sunny destinations starting next year.
Just in time for the end of winter, passengers will be able to fly from CAK nonstop to Savannah/Hilton Head, Tampa/St. Petersburg, Sarasota/Bradenton, and Fort Myers/Punta Gorda. Service will begin on March 2, 2022. One-way fares on the new routes will cost as low as $59.

“A hallmark of Allegiant’s business model is flexibility, which allows us to respond quickly and nimbly when demand for service shifts,” said Drew Wells, Allegiant’s senior vice president of revenue and network planning. “Our northeast Ohio customers said they wanted Allegiant at Akron-Canton Airport, and we listened. We’re adding four new routes that will provide area travelers with more options to visit some of our most popular spring destinations in Florida and Georgia. As an easy-to-access, centrally located airport, CAK is a great match for Allegiant’s unique brand of convenient, nonstop service at some of the industry’s lowest fares. We’re excited about resuming service there.”
However, Allegiant is also set to pull out of Cleveland Hopkins International Airport effective at the end of this year.
"While our flights were very successful in the Cleveland market, the construction project and planned expansion at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport made the cost structure prohibitive for us to continue our operation there. However, demand for service in the Northeast Ohio community remains high. Akron-Canton Airport provided us with an ideal option to continue serving the market. Their low-cost structure allows us to keep our operating costs low, and we’re able to pass those savings on to our customers in the form of affordable fares, which is the hallmark of Allegiant’s business model," Allegiant told 3News in an email.
“CAK is proud to be part of Allegiant Air’s continued commitment to Northeast Ohio,” said Ren Camacho, Akron-Canton Airport President and CEO. “Travelers will be delighted by Allegiant’s low fares coupled with our convenient airport experience. We are absolutely thrilled to partner with Allegiant to offer affordable, nonstop service to these four, unique destinations. “
