Allegiant Air is launching new nonstop routes from Spokane to Orange County and Las Vegas.

The Las Vegas-based carrier announced Tuesday its adding a direct flight that operates Sundays and Thursdays between Spokane and McCarran International Airport, beginning Feb. 11.

Allegiant will also operate a direct flight on Sundays and Thursdays between Spokane and Orange County, beginning Feb. 18.

Allegiant is offering $49, one-way fares between Spokane and Las Vegas, and $69 one-way fares for travel to and from Orange County, through May 23.

“We are excited to welcome Allegiant back to the Spokane/Coeur d’Alene market with new nonstop service to Orange County/John Wayne Airport and additional nonstop service to Las Vegas/McCarran Airport,” said Ezra Eckhardt, chairman of the Spokane Airport Board in a statement. “Orange County is a very important gateway to the Los Angeles Basin, which remains our region’s largest travel market.”

Spokane International Airport is experiencing a shift to leisure destinations and is also pleased with Allegiant’s service to Las Vegas as it has climbed to the airport’s second-largest market destination, Eckhardt said.

The two routes are part of Allegiant’s nationwide service expansion announced Tuesday that includes 15 new direct flights.
