The Redmond Airport continues to grow with the addition of First Allegiant flights to Las Vegas. First Allegiant, a budget operator, began offering the twice weekly flights at the end of March but quickly stepped up to three weekly flights after seeing how popular the idea of a weekend getaway in Vegas was to Central Oregon residents. Airport manager Carrie Novick says Redmond makes use of reverse marketing to attract Nevada residents to Central Oregon. The new flights come at a time of expansion at the airport as officials prepare for a $135,000 addition that will begin later this year.
