Airport Manager, Bill Carberry says "we'd been talking seriously with them for several months now and were working out the details of the airport agreement the service the schedules, we're well positioned to start up June 17th we're doing the inaugural flight."
Regular flights are scheduled for Friday and Mondays for now, and at a relatively low cost around $30 bucks one way and offers package deals to Las Vegas shows. And according to the airline fills a lack in service.
Sabrina LoPiccolo, public relations for Allegiant Air says "you currently do not have any non–stop service to vacation destinations like Las Vegas so we really felt there was a need this is one of the top destinations for this community."
Allegiant Air will only fly to Las Vegas but it might open up future travel to other destinations like Phoenix and Los Angeles.
LoPiccolo says "if we see that there is more of a demand maybe for additional flight per week or destination we will certainly consider that."
The company will operate this 150 passenger jet and the first flight will lift off June 17th.
