Airline to offer flights to Florida from N.H.'s Pease

The Associated Press

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — Allegiant Air is bringing passenger air service back to the Portsmouth International Airport at Pease, with flights to Florida.

The Portsmouth Herald reports the flights will be offered starting Oct. 25.

Allegiant had served Pease in the past, ending in 2007.

The airline says it will offer fares as low as $99 roundtrip or $69 one way as a promotional rate. The new flights will operate twice weekly between Portsmouth and the Orlando-Sanford International Airport.

The roundtrip promotional fare will be available for just three days and must be purchased by Aug. 22. The one-way $69 fare is available until Aug. 27.

Several airlines have offered passenger service since Pease was certified as a commercial airport in 1992, but none has lasted. The last attempt was in 2011.
