Allegiant Air announces new service to North Dakota

Allegiant Air will begin flying twice-weekly routes between Las Vegas and Minot, N.D., beginning in October.

It will be the fourth North Dakota destination for Las Vegas-based Allegiant, which specializes in linking small cities across the United States with resorts. The airline already flies round trips between Las Vegas and Bismarck, Fargo and Grand Forks.

Beginning Oct. 22, flights will leave McCarran International Airport Mondays and Fridays at 6:50 a.m., arriving at Minot International Airport at 11:30 a.m. The return flights leave Minot at 12:10 p.m., arriving in Las Vegas at 1 p.m. Allegiant will use 150-passenger twin-engine MD-80 jets on the route.

“This new air service announcement represents Allegiant’s confidence in this market,” said Andrew Solsvig, Minot International’s airport director. “The Minot community and region will now have access to one of the best leisure destinations on the planet.”

Allegiant is introducing the route with $70 one-way fares, which don’t include taxes and amenity fees.
