Allegiant Airlines is expanding service between the Greater Rochester International Airport and Southwest Florida. 

Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo says that Allegiant will begin new, twice-weekly, non-stop service from Rochester to Punta Gorda, Florida beginning November 17.

The year-round route will offer approximately 340 additional non-stop seats to the west coast of Florida.
