Elvis is alive and apparently, he's got a grey beard. Owensboro airport director Bob Whitmer introduces the Allegiant Air route to Las Vegas. Joining him are an Elvis impersonator, show girl and Owensboro Mayor Ron Payne.
- Allegiant Air added its second route to Owensboro, KY (OWB) on 14 October when the ultra low cost carrier launched two weekly flights from Las Vegas, NV (LAS). The MD80 operator, which already serves Owensboro from Orlando Sanford, is one of only two operators of scheduled commercial services at the airport, with the only other service being an Essential Air Service to Nashville, TN on KentuckySkies.
