Since launching direct flights in January of 2006 between Santa Maria, California and Las Vegas, Nevada, Allegiant Air has extended its nonstop jet-service between the two cities to now include Fridays, Sundays and Wednesdays.

“We are extremely pleased to extend the Allegiant brand of low-fare, nonstop jet service to the Central Coast community,” Maurice J. Gallagher, Allegiant Air president & CEO said. “This is an exciting new addition for our airline and our customers as we offer the only scheduled nonstop service between Santa Maria and Las Vegas.”

The new flights operate three times weekly between Santa Maria Airport and McCarran International Airport (Las Vegas), with service Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

Santa Maria Airport General Manager Gary Rice is pleased that Allegiant Air recognizes Santa Maria as the best Central Coast gateway for its jet service to Las Vegas. “The Airport District offers Allegiant and its customers ease of access, low operating costs and free parking in a friendly and inviting atmosphere,” Rice said.

The airline was influenced by market research and input from local community leaders indicating that the Central Coast community welcomes new nonstop flights and low fares to Las Vegas as an alternative to connecting flights or long drives to other airports. The carrier utilizes a full-size, 150-seat MD-80 jet aircraft on the route.
