The route will be flown by the airline’s MD-83 fleet and operates twice-weekly (Thursdays and Sundays). Unlike most of Allegiant’s new routes, which are mainly unserved sectors, its latest city pairing is already well connected. Southwest Airlines and Spirit Airlines combined already offer 34 weekly flights between Las Vegas and Kansas City according to OAG schedules data. For Allegiant this brings to four the number of destinations it links to Kansas City.
