Officials at Owensboro Daviess County Regional Airport say the announcement that Allegiant Air will soon have flights out of Evansville Regional Airport shouldn’t affect their flights.
Allegiant operates flights up to four days a week to Orlando from Owensboro.
Airport Director, Bob Whitmer, says the announcement is a sign of the airline’s commitment to help the region grow –
“Evansville’s airport is a very nice airport. I think the Evansville market can help us grow north, where we can help them grow south of here and generate more customers overall.”
Whitmer says he plans to work with Evansville Regional officials on marketing opportunities between the two airports.
