WICHITA — Low-fare carrier Allegiant Air will take a long break from some Wichita routes starting in about a week as children prepare to head back to school.
The Wichita Eagle reports that Aug. 10 is the last scheduled flight of the year between Wichita and Los Angeles International Airport, Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport and Orlando Sanford Airport. The schedule also shows the carrier’s flights to Phoenix -Mesa Gateway Airport will stop Aug. 12, but restart on Oct. 4 and continue into next year.
Service is scheduled to continue uninterrupted to Las Vegas, which is Allegiant’s home base.
Allegiant spokeswoman Sonya Padgett said in an email it’s likely the routes to California and Florida will return next summer when “families are taking their vacations.”
