BELLINGHAM - Allegiant is offering nonstop jet service between Bellingham and Reno beginning Thursday, June 6.

The company will introduce the new service with fares as low as $69.99 one way. Allegiant plans on offering these flights year round.

"We are pleased to bring another affordable and convenient travel option to the residents of Bellingham," said Andrew C. Levy, Allegiant Travel Company president, in a news release. "We are confident the Bellingham community will appreciate the convenience of flying nonstop to Reno-Tahoe and the value of bundling their air, hotel and car rental reservation together."

Allegiant originally started flights between Bellingham and Reno in 2007, but ended the service in 2009, citing a lack of market demand.

The new flights will operate twice weekly between Bellingham International Airport and Reno-Tahoe International Airport, using the MD-80 planes. Flight days and times can be found at allegiant.com.
