"We welcome Allegiant and value their partnership in providing nonstop service from Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport to the Orlando market", Gov. Phil Bryant said in a news release from Allegiant.

Delta Air Lines is the only airline that already offers nonstop flights from RDU to Cincinnati.

The new, year-round routes are projected to bring more than 33,000 additional visitors to Las Vegas annually, officials with the Las Vegas-based budget carrier said.
