Allegiant is celebrating by offering fares as low as $79* one-way to the “Capital City of Entertainment.”

“We are pleased to bring the Allegiant brand of low-fare, nonstop jet service to the Casper community,” Maurice J. Gallagher, Allegiant Air president & CEO, said. “This is an exciting new addition for our airline and our customers as we launch the only nonstop jet service between Casper and Las Vegas.”

The new flights will operate two times weekly between Natrona County International Airport and McCarran International Airport (Las Vegas), with service Monday and Friday.
