Virgin America said it has announced a new nonstop option for travelers flying between Dallas Love Field (DAL) and Las Vegas McCarran International Airport (LAS) as of December 1, 2015, with tickets on sale now for two daily roundtrip flights between Dallas and Las Vegas.
With fleetwide WiFi, custom-designed leather seating, power outlets, personal touch-screen entertainment platforms and new aircraft with three classes of service, Virgin America will bring some needed product and fare competition to this nonstop route.
“Las Vegas is an iconic travel destination and Dallas travelers deserve an option that gets them there in style, whether they are traveling for a fun weekend getaway or headed to one of the thousands of trade events or conventions that Las Vegas hosts each year,” said Virgin America President and CEO David Cush. “We are confident that our award-winning service and product will resonate on this route, especially since we will be the only carrier operating between Love Field and Las Vegas to offer three classes of premium service.”
Las Vegas is currently the eighth largest market from Dallas Love Field in terms of guest traffic and the sixth largest destination from all Dallas airports combined (QDF). Virgin America will also be the only airline offering a red-eye from Las Vegas to Dallas, allowing Dallas-originating travelers to maximize their time taking advantage of everything Vegas has to offer before returning home.
The new service will create well-timed connecting flight options between Las Vegas and Virgin America´s Washington Reagan National Airport (DCA) and New York LaGuardia Airport (LGA).
Virgin America has built a loyal following of flyers and earned a host of awards since launching in 2007 — including being named both the “Best US Airline” in CondÃ© Nast Traveler´s Readers´ Choice Awards for the past seven consecutive years and “Best Domestic Airline” in Travel + Leisure´s World´s Best Awards for the past eight consecutive years.
