By  | 

MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) -- Allegiant says it will no longer fly out Manhattan, starting late next month. In a statement released early Monday night, the low-cost airline said flights out of Manhattan Regional Airport will end on Feb. 23, 2014.

"We are always disappointed to end service in a market," said Eric Fletcher, Allegiant Travel Co. Manager of Airports. "We thank Manhattan Regional Airport for their partnership and apologize to any travelers who are inconvenienced by this decision."

The Las Vegas-based carrier had connected the Little Apple with the Phoeniz/Scottsdale region. It began service at Manhattan Regional Airport on Nov. 7, 2013.

Any customers with reservations past Feb. 23, 2014 will be contacted for a full refund.

Manhattan Regional still offers daily flights to Dallas and Chicago through American Eagle. The airport's terminal is in the midst of a nearly $15.8 million expansion to accommodate those passengers.
