SLO Airport Adds Flight To Vegas

Step by step, we keep working to grow all the vital aspects of our local economy that keep SLO County strong: a busy airport with many destinations to facilitate businesses is a big part of that.

From The Tribune:

The San Luis Obispo Regional Airport continues its rapid expansion — this time adding a direct flight to a tourism hot spot.

Contour Airlines will start flying directly four days a week to Las Vegas on October 17, with one-way tickets starting at an introductory price of $99 and going up to $200, it announced at a Wednesday press conference at the airport.

The 80-minute flights, which offer bigger-than-average legroom, will be offered Thursday, Friday, Sunday and Monday.

Contour, a Tennessee-based low-cost carrier, is expanding around California, recently adding a Sacramento-to-Palm Springs flight; it also operates a Sacramento-to-Santa Barbara flight.
