Low-cost airline Allegiant Air is launching nonstop jet service between Los Angeles and Eugene, Oregon on June 3.
“We’re pleased to bring yet another affordable and convenient way for Eugene residents to get away,” says Maurice Gallagher, chairman and CEO of Allegiant Air’s parent Allegiant Travel Company. “This is an exciting new addition for our airline and our customers as we launch the only nonstop, low-cost service between Eugene and Los Angeles.”
“We are very pleased with the continued success Allegiant Air has found in the Eugene market,” said Tim Doll, A.A.E, director of Eugene Airport. “Los Angeles has been an underserved market for quite some time and, once again, Allegiant Air is stepping up to provide much needed nonstop service between EUG and LAX.”
The new flights will operate two times weekly between Eugene and Los Angeles, on Thursdays and Sundays. Beginning June 3, flights will depart Eugene at 6:30 p.m. arriving in Los Angeles at 8:40 p.m. Flights leaving Los Angeles will depart at 3:40 p.m. arriving in Eugene at 5:50 p.m. (all flight times are local).
Fast-growing Allegiant Air also offers nonstop service to Las Vegas, Phoenix and Oakland from Eugene.
