Just in time for summer, cheap flights from Wichita's Eisenhower National Airport to Florida's Emerald Coast begin Wednesday.

Allegiant airlines is offering flights to and from Destin-Fort Walton Beach in the Florida Panhandle. Flights to the Emerald Coast will run on Wednesdays and Saturdays starting June 5.

Destin-Fort Walton Beach is on the Emerald Coast of Florida near the Air Force Armament Museum and Eglin Air Force Base. It places travelers between Pensacola and Panama City Beach.

Allegiant said it's offering one-way fares as low as $59 as long as you book your flight before August 13. We checked Wednesday morning and still found some for $60. 

Flights can only be booked through Allegiant's website.

Destin-Fort Walton Beach is the third route to Florida added by Allegiant, including Daytona Beach and Orlando. The airline also offers flights to and from Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Phoenix.
