Frontier Airlines announced this week that it’s launching a daily nonstop flight between Long Island and Las Vegas but not until March 18, 2021; a date that coincides with the start of the NCAA basketball tournament.

The Las Vegas announcement comes as the Denver-based airline said it’s expanding service to resort destinations from Long Island to Orlando and other parts of Florida in November. It did not provide a reason why Las Vegas service won’t start until 2021, but service between the East Coast to Las Vegas is expected to return gradually as people feel more comfortable traveling long distances.

“We’re ecstatic to announce daily nonstop flights from Long Island MacArthur Airport to Las Vegas,” Daniel Shurz, senior vice president of commercial for Frontier Airlines said in a statement. “Theme parks, resorts and other vacation activities are opening across the country and we recognize there’s pent-up demand for travel.”

Town of Islip Supervisor Angie Carpenter added that for years, Long Island travelers “have been hoping and asking for nonstop flights to Las Vegas from MacArthur Airport.”
