Allegiant Stops Hawaii Flights to Eugene

EUGENE, Ore. — Eugene travelers will soon say aloha to non-stop flights from Eugene to Honolulu. That’s aloha as in goodbye.

Allegiant Airlines is already cutting that service from Eugene.

Allegiant airlines announced in November that it would be adding the non-stop flights from Eugene to Hawaii, but just a few months later they’re stopping the year round service.

The Eugene Airport spokesperson says Allegiant Airlines does not like to fly planes that aren’t completely full.

And while the flights have been a success since they started a few months ago, the airline will no longer offer them year round.

Instead it will suspend the service in the middle of August and bring the service back during peak travel times, including summer and holidays.

“We don’t know what that holiday schedule looks like yet, but we’re anticipating that they’ll be adding that back in,” said Cathryn Stephens, Eugene Airports spokesperson.

“Most of us go on their off season, so it’s not as crowded and I think there are a lot of people that would do that too,” said Roseburg resident Irene Hutchinson.

Travelers who wanted to take advantage of the non-stop Hawaii flights are disappointed with the service cut.

The airport says this change in service will not have a negative impact on its numbers, as both Frontier and American flights will begin in the next few months.

    “The airport says this change in service will not have a negative impact on its numbers, as both Frontier and American flights will begin in the next few months.”

    Call me dumb but does the above statement mean that Frontier and American will be taking passengers to Hawaii on non-stop flights like Allegiant Airlines was doing?

    Like Paul Harvey used to say, “and now the rest of the story”
