Synopsis: Allegiant is expected to announce Thursday twice-weekly nonstop service from Las Vegas to Abilene Regional Airport.
Allegiant already serves GRK, SPS, LRD, and MFE, and recently passed up service to ACT due to a dispute over fuel charges.
I must admit that I was skeptical that my hometown airport could pull it off, but kudos to Abilene officials for making it happen. An incentive package was offered, but no details were immediately released.
Currently, ABI is served by AAEagle RJs to DFW and CoConnection SF3s to IAH.
