PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) – Allegiant Air announced Friday it is cutting back operations, but staying at Pease International Tradeport.

The small airline says it plans to reduce flights to two days a week and suspend service in the summer and fall.

Allegiant has closed its operations in Worcester, Mass., and was considering pulling out of Portsmouth.

On Friday, the Pease Development Authority reached an agreement with the airline to continue service from Portsmouth to Orlando, Fla., during the peak travel period between November and spring, and suspend service during the off-peak seasons.
