America West Expansion Launches Fresno to Las Vegas Service
FRESNO, CA America West Airlines announced today that it would begin daily nonstop service between Fresno and Las Vegas as one of the four cities to gain new service effective June 1, 2004. In addition to Fresno, other cities listed for Las Vegas service are San Luis Obispo, Calif.; Medford, Ore.; and Calgary, Canada.
Using 50-seat Canadair Regional Jets operated by America West Express/Mesa, the new low-cost service is part of America West’s planned expansion at its Las Vegas hub. The late night flights will provide Valley travelers with convenient, inexpensive red-eye connections to popular mid-west and east coast destinations. The proposed flight schedule is listed below:
Fresno, Ca. to Las Vegas
Departs 9:10 p.m.
Arrives 10:15 p.m.
Las Vegas to Fresno, Ca.
Departs 11:46 p.m.
Arrives 12:52 a.m.
Currently, America West Express/Mesa provides Fresno passengers with five daily non-stop regional jets to Phoenix.

This was a flight once before on AWX, but it was dropped. Skywest serves FAT-LAS with 2x daily EMB-120s. If you ask me, FAT's future is looking great. Especially with the new MX service.
