A discount airline wants to provide nonstop jet service between Lancaster and Orlando — if the local airport authority pays its expenses here.

Allegiant Air has contacted the Lancaster Airport Authority to express interest in flying the route twice a week.

“It’s not as glamorous as it might appear,” David Eberly, airport director, said.

“They’re in a lot of smaller communities like Lancaster, and they don’t want to pay the community anything.”

In a separate development, the authority has asked the federal government to subsidize daily service to a new city on a new carrier.

  1. Allegiant seems stable and dependable, but they fly into the smaller suburban airports, so you have to watch that. I flew them from Wilmington, NC to Orlando for a convention a few years ago. After I booked it, I realized they were not flying into Orlando International Airport – instead, they flew into Sanford-Orlando airport. Sanford is north of Orlando, so it was a pretty long drive to the convention center downtown! No complaints about the flight, though. Sanford Airport was OK, too. It seemed like it was mostly set up for cargo flights, though.
