Allegiant Air
announced this morning that it would begin a non-stop service from Little Rock to Los Angeles this summer.

The flights for the summer months to Los Angeles International will begin June 4 and target vacation travelers, as Allegiant flights to Florida have done.

The flights will be twice a week through August 16. The airline offers some combination deals with hotel and rental cars.

The news coincides with our cover story last week about how a falling passenger count and shift in airline industry practices had reduced the number of nonstop flights to Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport. The airport's efforts to woo carriers like Allegiant and others were continuing and this one proved productive.

The full Allegiant release:
Allegiant (NASDAQ: ALGT) today announces new low-cost, nonstop, seasonal jet service between Little Rock and Los Angeles beginning June 4, 2015. The new flights become the airport’s first and only nonstop travel option to LAX. Allegiant today is also offering its biggest sale ever, with up to $500 off air+hotel vacations* and promotional one-way fares as low as $89**.

“We’re excited to add more service out of Little Rock and fly travelers to top vacation destinations on both coasts,” said Jude Bricker, Allegiant Travel Company senior vice president of planning. “We believe that travelers will embrace this new vacation opportunity and the convenience of our low-cost, nonstop flights.”

The new seasonal flights will operate twice weekly through Aug. 16, 2015, and will fly nonstop between Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport (LIT) and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Flight days, times and the lowest fares can be found only at Allegiant.com.
For the next 48 hours, Little Rock travelers can also visit Allegiant.com/SAVE500 to take advantage of the biggest sale in the company’s history. For vacation packages totaling:

“We’re extremely excited that Allegiant Air will be adding nonstop service from Little Rock to Los Angeles,” said Ronald F. Mathieu, Clinton National Airport executive director. “For many years, our customers have asked for service to LAX, and we’re appreciative that Allegiant is making the investment into our community.”

From theme parks and world-famous beaches to unsurpassed shopping and the iconic Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles is an escape from reality. Allegiant partners with more than 40 of Southern California’s most exciting hotel properties, provides low-cost car rental service through its partnership with Alamo Rent a Car, and offers great deals on local activities.
