Beginning May 26, Allegiant, which is the only passenger airline serving MidAmerica, will add direct flights to Myrtle Beach, S.C., on a seasonal basis, as well as year-round service to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Its flights to Destin/Fort Walton, Florida, will increase to five days a week.

MidAmerica is close to breaking even on money. I thought that would never happen. I hope they get there.

I'm flying out of Mid-America for the first time on Thursday.

Can anyone who has used it before give me an idea of what to expect in terms of security, parking, etc.? I really don't know anything about it.

Much appreciated.

I know parking is free and it is just a normal lot. That is about all I know though, so I am also curious. Let us know how it goes for you.

This might help a little. I hope it goes well for you.

In case anyone is curious, our experience at BLV was a breeze. Free parking, quick security check-in. There's a small bar/restaurant serving the four gates, and a few vending machines. The lack of hassles probably made up for the amount of time it took us to drive to Belleville.
Out of curiosity, how was Allegiants service? I've heard horror stories of planes filling with smoke/emergency landings. Also, when you return to BLV, do they say welcome to Belleville or welcome to St Louis? I'm interested because I do know that in Jacksonville they market the route as a flight to St Louis.

It was perfectly fine. Felt comparable to flying on Southwest or other carriers. They did say "Welcome to Belleville," and it was a little different to see Belleville listed on the departures/arrival schedule.
The airport might start charging for parking. I think $3 a day isn't crazy and worth trying out.
