INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Feb. 5, 2015)– A lucky couple got to fly to New Orleans for free as part of Allegiant Air’s inaugural Indianapolis flight.

Mark and Sharon Land won the Allegiant “pack your bags” contest Thursday. They packed their bags, dressed in their New Orleans best and came to the airport for a chance to win a free flight to the Big Easy and a 3-night hotel stay.

“We saw the post on Facebook and thought we might as well take a chance,” said Sharon.

But they weren’t the only winners.  Allegiant and Indianapolis International Airport had a surprise for all contestants.  They offered free airline (round-trip tickets only) to all 32 contestants.
