    Allegiant Airlines has finally unveiled its first flights to Hawaii. The leisure carrier announced this morning that it would begin flying to Honolulu from both Las Vegas and Fresno beginning in June.
    Allegiant's thrice-weekly Las Vegas service will begin June 29. Once-a-week flight from Fresno will begin June 30.

    "The announcement of service to Hawaii is a great achievement for Allegiant," Andrew Levy, Allegiant president, says in a release. "Service to Las Vegas and Fresno reflects a moderate growth plan by our company. With the addition of the four aircraft we have acquisitioned, we plan to expand service to other mainland cities in the future. We anticipate the service will be very popular, especially when customers take advantage of Allegiant's low pricing when bundling their air, hotel and car rental package."

    Allegiant will operate with the routes with Boeing 757 jets, which it acquired specifically with the Hawaii service in mind. The carrier took delivery of its first 757s in 2011, though it took the company longer than most had initially expected to get the aircraft certified for the long over-water flights to Hawaii.
