Beginning in August, Frontier Airlines will offer twice weekly, nonstop service to Las Vegas from Spokane.

Every Monday and Friday, flights will depart Las Vegas at 10:30 a.m. and arrive in Spokane at 12:50 p.m. The same day, flights will depart Spokane at 1:40 p.m. and arrive in Las Vegas at 4 p.m.

The flights will be operated on a 180-seat Airbus A320, and service will begin Aug. 13.

According to the airline’s website, tickets range between $34 and $152 for a one-way trip.

Denver-based Frontier Airlines recently returned to the Spokane airport after a three-year hiatus, with flights to and from Denver four times a week – Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.

“The Las Vegas-Paradise-Henderson region continues to grow as an international resort destination for tourism, gaming and conventions,” said Nancy Vorhees, Spokane Airport Board chair. “Also, there are business and family ties to the Spokane/Coeur d’Alene region from Las Vegas, and it is an increasingly popular location of second homes for snowbirds and others who enjoy the area, so we anticipate this new nonstop service will do well.”
