Good News if you're looking for a quick weekend getaway: We can get to Vegas directly and cheaper from CR!
Starting Aug. 15, Frontier Airlines will offer direct flights from The Eastern Iowa Airport to Las Vegas. Flights will run Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Frontier Airlines unveiled the new route Thursday as part of an expansion of its Las Vegas routes — direct flights to Las Vegas from Des Moines, Madison and Memphis also were announced.
To celebrate the new routes, Frontier Airlines is offering $59 tickets to Las Vegas.
Having flown on Frontier before, this is great news and Frontier is a no-frills yet steady airline. They were awesome to deal with when my better-half and I went to San Diego last year and we look forward to flying with them again.
A little competition is always good, right?
