LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Discount carrier Spirit Airlines has announced plans to offer daily, nonstop service between Las Vegas and Kansas City.
The company announced Wednesday that the flights would begin Aug. 7. A plane will depart Kansas City at 9:55 p.m. daily and arrive in Las Vegas at 10:55 p.m. local time, while a flight will depart Las Vegas at 1 a.m. daily and arrive in Kansas City at 5:45 a.m.
Spirit also announced service between Kansas City and Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Detroit and Houston.
The airline, based in Miramar, Fla., offers inexpensive flights but also charges for amenities such as soft drinks, carry-on bags and assigned seats. It also has more seats, which don't recline, in its airplanes.
Kansas City will be the 56th city in Spirit's network.
