Allegiant to halt Hawaii flights ‘temporarily’ in August

By The Spokesman-Review

Allegiant Air said it’s going to “temporarily” halt flights to Hawaii from Spokane and several other U.S. cities, including Boise and Eugene.

The last Spokane flight to Honolulu will leave on Aug. 10.

Allegiant launched the weekly nonstop flights to Hawaii from Spokane in February.

The Las Vegas-based airline said the change will suspend flights from Boise, Eugene, Phoenix, Fresno, Stockton and Santa Maria, Calif.

“It’s a seasonal suspension of service” related to declining travel during the late summer and fall, Allegiant spokeswoman Jessica Wheeler said.

“Allegiant can offer low fares in large part because we respond to the changing leisure travel demand,” Wheeler said.

The airline’s three-days-a-week service to Honolulu from Las Vegas, and twice-a-week service to both Maui and Honolulu from Bellingham, will not be affected.

Wheeler said the airline expects to resume the flights to and from Hawaii in the winter and during the busy spring season.
