MOLINE -- Allegiant will offer additional flights in March and April to the St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport in Florida and Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport in Arizona.

Quad City International Airport aviation director Bruce Carter announced the flights to the airport authority board at its meeting Tuesday.

Mr. Carter also said that in early spring, American Airlines will add a flight to O'Hare International Airport in Chicago and Delta will add flights to Detroit and Minneapolis.

He said after the meeting that the Allegiant flights to both warm-weather destinations are very popular, and he will have discussions with the airline in the near future about offering flights to additional cities in Florida and/or the West Coast.
