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.
