“We’re thrilled to celebrate this terrific milestone with this expansion of service in Owensboro,” said Drew Wells, Allegiant vice president of planning and revenue. “Since 2009, Allegiant has offered affordable flights from Owensboro, and we could not be more appreciative of the support we’ve received from the community and airport.”
