GREEN, Ohio – Some good news today for those of us  who love to head south on vacation. Starting in May, you’ll be able to fly non-stop to Tampa, Hilton Head and Myrtle Beach out of  Akron-Canton on the airport’s newest airline, Allegiant Air.

The flights to Tampa’s St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport will run year round, two times  a week. The Hilton Head and Myrtle Beach routes will also run twice a week, but will fly seasonally. Flights to Hilton Head begin in May and will run through August, while flights to Myrtle Beach begin in June and run through August.

Allegiant is based out of Las Vegas and is known for its extremely low airfares. For flight information, click here to go to the Allegiant Air website.
