CONCORD, N.C. -- Concord travelers have a new destination on their list. The Concord Regional Airport announced Tuesday a new service to the Destin, Florida, area will be added to Allegiant's service out of the regional airport.

And it's not just a new spot for Concord residents. City leaders say it also brings the possibility of more tourists to the Charlotte area.

“We’re excited because Allegiant Air has a lot of presence around the country, and this is just a start with their six locations they’re serving out of Concord. We’d like to see them go up the East Coast and go out west and really expand the footprint they serve out of Concord,” said Bill Dusch, mayor of Concord.

The Destin trips are starting as seasonal offerings.

Allegiant is also running a special from Concord to Destin for only $49.
