Allegiant Air has begun twice-weekly non-stop service between Owensboro in Kentucky and Las Vegas and is offering one-way fares from $86.99 plus taxes between the two cities for bookings made by October 19.

“The Tri-State has asked for Las Vegas flights for two and one half years and Allegiant has responded,” said Bob Whitmer, director of Owensboro-Daviess Regional Airport. “October 14 is a great day for Owensboro as the initial Allegiant Las Vegas flight is the culmination of much hard work by the local governments, the citizens and the Airport Board.”


Whitmer added: “Allegiant provides everything the traveler needs including hotel rooms, car rentals, event tickets as well as the convenience of non-stop flights. The community has received what it requested; now the community must keep the flights full. This is a dream come true for Owensboro.”
