New Las Vegas Allegiant flight lands in Honolulu

By Associated Press


The first Allegiant Airlines flight from Las Vegas arrived today in Honolulu, where passengers were greeted with lei, Hawaiian music and a blessing.

Last year, Las Vegas-based Allegiant Travel Co. received federal certification to fly a bigger plane, which company officials said was a step toward providing service to Hawaii. The Hawaii Tourism Authority has said Allegiant's Hawaii service would help cultivate first-time travelers to the islands.

Honolulu will also welcome a new Allegiant flight from Fresno, Calif., on Sunday.

Tourism officials say both flights are estimated to provide $30 million in visitor spending and $3 million in tax revenue annually for Hawaii.

The airline focuses on connecting small cities with leisure destinations.
