Later in the year at autumn time, I have to fly back into Springfield Illinois for a few days. Can anyone here be kind enough to let me know which carriers currently serving Springfield? My origin airport will be either LAS, LAX, LGB or perhaps IFP. I don't mind making a connection or 2, and since I enjoy flying and visiting airports, layover time has no importence with me.
Thanks in advance. Regards.

Springfield is also an hour and 15/30 mins away from Bloomington/Normal (BMI), Peoria (PIA) and Champaign (CMI), all of which have many more options. So if you're interested in renting a car (or know someone who doesn't mind picking you up), it's a good idea to check those airports out as well.
Allegiant does a non stop to Peoria from LAS, Bloomington has service from Air Tran, and all three airports have some combination of the usual midwest contingent of Minnapolis/Detroit/Chicago/Dallas/Atlanta/Denver.
St. Louis is also only two hours away, and the Quad Cities are two and a half hours.
The point is - there are a bunch of options. If Springfield is too expensive, odds are you'll find something that'll work.
