The first round-trip, nonstop flights between Little Rock and Orlando, Fla., began Thursday afternoon for Allegiant Air, offering a new way for travelers to fly to and from the vacation destination in Florida.

The flights will be available Thursday and Sunday every week, with fares as low as $74.

About 60 passengers sat near Gate 6 at Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport awaiting their flight. They received gift bags and were able to visit and take pictures with Shelly, the mascot of the Arkansas Travelers.

Airport Executive Director Ron Mathieu and Allegiant Air Senior Vice President Jude Bricker spoke to passengers and patrons before the flight's maiden voyage.

Bricker said the flights will stay on the same pattern and remain at the airport for the foreseeable future.
