Jacksonville is getting a new nonstop flight, this time to Cleveland on Allegiant Air.

The new service will begin February 16. The year-round flights will operate twice weekly between Jacksonville International Airport and Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.

“We are looking forward to bringing more travelers from northeast Ohio to Jacksonville,” said Jude Bricker, Allegiant chief operating officer, in a statement. “Jacksonville has so much to offer as a vacation destination, and our new nonstop service will enable Cleveland travelers to get away their way with Allegiant.”

Allegiant has added several flights to Jacksonville since entering the market in February 2015. The airline flies to Belleville, Illinois/ St. Louis, Missouri; Indianapolis; New Orleans; Richmond, Virginia; Cincinnati; Columbus, Ohio; Memphis and Pittsburgh.

To celebrate the new service, Allegiant is offering a temporary ultra-low on-way fare of $50. To use that offer, purchased via the Allegiant website, tickets must be purchased by Sept. 28, 2016 and travel must happen before May 14, 2017.
