JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Low-cost carrier Allegiant Air and Jackson airport officials are awaiting federal approval of two direct flights a week to and from Orlando, Florida.

The airline is seeking a subsidy from the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The Mississippi Business Journal reports flights offered by the Nevada-based commercial and charter airline would land at Orlando/Sanford International, a small airport in the Central Florida city of Sanford about 15 miles north of Orlando.

Access to Orlando and its theme parks is made easier through a toll expressway that rings the entire metro area, including Sanford.

Jackson Medgar Wiley Evers International lost direct service to Orlando with the June departure of Southwest Airlines.

The airline and the Jackson Municipal Airport Authority reached the agreement this week.
