Allegiant Air to fly direct from Owensboro to Las Vegas
Allegiant Air confirmed Thursday that it will add nonstop jet service between Owensboro-Daviess County Regional Airport and Las Vegas starting Oct. 14. The announcement came at a 10 a.m. news conference. The introductory fare for Owensboro travelers is $89.99. The Las Vegas flights will be on Mondays and Fridays. Departure time from Owensboro is 12:20 p.m. with arrival in Las Vegas at 2:10 p.m. for about a 4-hour flight with the time zone changes. The Las Vegas-based carrier already flies nonstop between Owensboro and Orlando. The success of those flights was a primary factor in the company’s decision to add another route, a company spokesperson said.
