CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport made a major announcement Tuesday: a new low-cost airline is now available to travelers.
Kenton County Airport board members, CVG CEO, Candace McGraw, community leaders and other officials made the announcement at 10 a.m.
“We are pleased to add Orlando and the beaches of Southwest Florida as an affordable, convenient destination option for Cincinnati residents,” said Andrew C.

“We are excited to add Allegiant to our family of carriers at CVG,” said Candace McGraw, chief executive officer of the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. “Orlando and Southwest Florida are popular destinations for our passengers. We are thrilled to have a vacation centered low-cost carrier to serve the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky community.”
