Two new low-cost, nonstop flights are landing in Austin. Allegiant Air has announced plans to connect the Capital City with the Sunshine State and Hoosier territory.

Seasonal nonstop service between Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport in Florida will begin May 4, with one-way tickets as low as $56. Starting May 19, Allegiant will offer nonstop, year-round service to Indianapolis, with introductory fares as low as $60 one way. Both routes will run twice a week.

The Austin flights come amid a flurry of new routes and destinations for Allegiant, most notably the addition of Louisville, Kentucky, to the network. The airline also launches year-round service from Austin to Cleveland on February 17.

Austin's list of nonstop destinations continues to grow. Most recently, Southwest Airlines connected Austin to Kansas City, Missouri, and Delta linked us to Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina.
