Allegiant Air to halt service from Long Beach Airport

Allegiant Air will be leaving Long Beach Airport (LGB) on Nov. 28, ending its sole route between Long Beach and Las Vegas.

Customers who have tickets for flights after Nov. 28 will be contacted and given a refund, said spokeswoman Kristine Shattuck-Cooper.

Allegiant increased service between the two cities in September and previously announced it would expand to 12 weekly flights to Las Vegas by mid-November. Instead, it decided to call it quits in a business decision “that’s good for both parties,” Shattuck-Cooper said.

The airline had been at Long Beach since 2010, previously offering service to Bellingham, Wash., and Colorado Springs, Colo. But those services ended earlier, and Las Vegas was the only route that remained. The airline continues to provide service from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).


Long Beach Airport announced it would be seeking airlines to step in to take the three flight slots opened up by Allegiant’s departure.
