Allegiant Air returning to Hagerstown

Thursday - 3/22/2012, 11:50am  ET

HAGERSTOWN, Md. - Hagerstown Regional Airport is welcoming back an airline offering flights to Orlando after a nearly two-year break.

Airport officials said Thursday that Allegiant Air will resume twice-weekly flights to Sanford International Airport on May 25.

The Las Vegas-based carrier pulled out of Hagerstown in July 2010 after providing the service for about 19 months. The company cited weak demand for the flights.

The western Maryland city is also served by Cape Air, which provides federally subsidized flights to Baltimore several times a day.

Hagerstown has been served by a succession of destination-oriented carriers. The most recent was Direct Air, which ended service to Myrtle Beach, S.C., and Lakeland, Fla., in August.
