New non stop Las Vegas flights from Louisville KY

Allegiant Airline recently announced that new, nonstop jet service between Lexington, Ky., and Las Vegas, Nev., will begin Nov. 16.  Allegiant is known for its exceptional travel deals and will introduce the new service with fares as low as $104.98* one way.

The new flights will operate twice weekly between Blue Grass Airport (LEX) and McCarran International Airport (LAS), with service Wednesday and Saturday. Flights will depart Lexington at 3:45 p.m. arriving in Las Vegas at 5:00 p.m. Flights leaving Las Vegas will depart at 8:00 a.m. arriving in Lexington at 2:30 p.m. (all flight times are local). The carrier will utilize a full-size, 217-seat Boeing 757-200 jet aircraft on the route.

With world-renowned resorts, spas, casinos and entertainment options for visitors of all ages, Las Vegas is one of the most dynamic travel destinations in the world. With an average of more than 37 million people visiting each year, the vast majority of these visitors come to experience the Las Vegas Strip. The famous 4.2-mile section of Las Vegas Boulevard is home to 19 of the world’s largest hotels—each with their own unique look, atmosphere and offerings.

Around here many travelers are accustomed to travelling to Columbus or Cincinnati to catch a flight so a journey to Louisville is not out of the picture.

Saturday travel may pose some issues as for years the major Las Vegas resorts have not accepted Saturday arrivals but maybe that’s changing.

Anyhow you can now package Allegiant flights with hotel packages and enjoy “Lost Wages”.
