Las Vegas-based airlines to leave Colorado Springs airport

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A Las Vegas-based airline says it will stop its service in Colorado Springs citing a lack of demand.

The Gazette reports the low-fare carrier Allegiant Air says it will halt flights to Colorado Springs on April 29 after 16 years.

Allegiant spokeswoman Krysta Levy said Wednesday that the company’s decision was based entirely on the lack of demand in the area.

It is the second airline to leave the city in the past six months.

Allegiant offered round-trips flights between Las Vegas and Colorado Springs on Fridays and Sundays while its competitor Denver-based Frontier offers daily flights between the cities.
