We love to fly our kids and granddaughter here! Twice a year they come to visit us in Punta Gorda! Lynn, a flight attendant based here is a great friend of ours and she always picks up their flight to work and treats them like royalty! Our granddaughter got to go into the cockpit with the pilots and that was a great memory she takes with her! She is 6 and has flown on Allegiant since she was 4 months old! We love Allegiant for the flight schedules and close by service!
