Las Vegas-based Allegiant Air is launching nonstop round-trip air service to and from Tulsa, Okla., on Wednesday and will begin flights from Tulsa to Clearwater, Fla., and Los Angeles later this year, the company announced Wednesday.
The discount carrier that flies between resort destinations and small cities across the country will fly the Las Vegas route three times a week, Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Flights depart from McCarran International Airport at just after 4 p.m., arriving at 8:40 p.m. Return flight leave Tulsa International Airport at 9:20 p.m., arriving in Las Vegas just after 10 p.m.
Allegiant will compete on the route with Southwest Airlines, which offers one daily round trip.
The airline is introducing the route with $57 one-way introductory fares on sale through April 15. Allegiant generally offers low base fares, but charges extra for added services, including baggage fees and carry-on bags and charges to select a seat or pay with a credit card.
Allegiant will expand its Tulsa service with flights to and from Tampa Bay in May and Los Angeles International Airport in June.
