TVC to Add Direct Flights to Ft. Lauderdale

By Beth Milligan | Nov. 16, 2023

Allegiant will launch new nonstop service between Traverse City and Fort Lauderdale, Florida starting next spring, the airline announced Thursday.

Direct flights between Cherry Capital Airport (TVC) and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) will begin May 17 and continue year-round. The route expands on other nonstop Allegiant destinations including Sanford/Orlando (SFB), Punta Gorda (PGD), Tampa/St. Pete (PIE), and Phoenix/Mesa (AZA).

Cherry Capital Airport CEO Kevin Klein said TVC is "thrilled with the commitment made by Allegiant to expand service to Fort Lauderdale," saying it offers a "great adventure to escape the heat of Fort Lauderdale" for Florida residents and provides access to "great sun and fun for all in northern Michigan."

Cherry Capital Airport has continued to expand its nonstop offerings. Last month, the airport announced daily flights to and from TVC and Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) will be offered starting in summer 2024, expanding on what was previously a Saturday-only service.
