Allegiant Air now serves both Orlando airports

Budget carrier Allegiant Air is shaking things up in Orlando, where earlier this month they relocated 10 of their 31 nonstop scheduled flights from Orlando-Sanford International Airport to the more centrally located Orlando International Airport. It's a surprising move from a carrier such as Allegiant, operating on the 'low cost' model of serving smaller out-of-the-way airports, which, of course, keeps fares down. So why the move? Competition! Allegiant is up against AirTran, who offers service between Orlando and many of the same small second-tier markets.

Allegiant will continue with the bulk of their service (21 cities) operating from Orlando-Sanford.
