Vision Airlines will launch flights from Southeastern cities to Las Vegas in june

Vision Airlines will stretch its route map by more than 1,000 miles when it inaugurates flights from Las Vegas to two cities in the Southeast starting in June.Vision, the scheduled airline division of Las Vegas-based Vision Air Holdings, will fly four times a week from McCarran International Airport to Destin, Fla., starting June 2, and twice a week to Baton Rouge, La., starting June 3.

Vision, which is based in suburban Atlanta and started flying in December, has built its schedule to cover 24 cities in 14 states, almost all of them within 500 miles of its hub at the Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport. Until now, Vision has not gone farther West than Houston.The company’s management has closely followed the template of Allegiant Air, operated by Las Vegas-based Allegiant Travel Co., which picks a resort city as the primary focus, then connects it to other cities with nonstop routes where other airlines previously required connections.

The fares are set to undercut competitors, with some promotional seats being sold as cheaply as $19 one way, but with separate charges for other items.Vision Air Holdings, which started in 1994, has run charters to Gulf Coast casinos, Cuba and Afghanistan. Other divisions operate tours to the Grand Canyon out of the North Las Vegas Airport and sell vacation packages.
