After Tuesday, the days are going to start getting a little bit shorter again. While the weather is great now, it's a reminder that winter is making its way back.
But there's some good news: You'll be able to escape the cold and fly to Florida for $69.
Allegiant Air is a small, no-frills airline for people who want to fly on a budget. It currently makes flights to and from St. Cloud Regional Airport.
The airline announced Tuesday it'll be adding 28 new routes and services from three new cities. Among those new routes is one from St. Cloud to Punta Gorda Airport, which is just northwest of Fort Meyers.
“We are excited for Allegiant to begin the Florida service,” Mayor Dave Kleis said. “Adding a second destination shows their commitment to the St. Cloud area and we look forward to working with them on additional potential growth opportunities.”
Those nonstop flights will be seasonal, running from Nov. 15 to at least April 1, a spokeswoman told the Star Tribune. There will be two flights a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays. One-way tickets range from $69 to $339 – the most expensive ones are around the holidays. You can see a calendar for exact dates and prices here.
But if you want in on the deal, you literally have to plan right now.
Allegiant says you need to buy your tickets by Thursday if you plan to travel before Feb. 13.
In St. Cloud, Allegiant also offers flights to Phoenix.
