LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Allegiant Air is ending its short-lived service between Lexington and Las Vegas this spring, but it will continue to service flights between the Blue Grass Airport and Florida.

Airline spokeswoman Jessica Wheeler told The Lexington Herald-Leader that they were using twin-engine Boeing 757 planes for the Lexington-to-Vegas flights, but Allegiant wants those aircraft for service to Hawaii (http://bit.ly/AjVAH8 )

The company began service between Lexington and Las Vegas in November and the service will end on April 7. Customers with reservations beyond that date will be contacted by Allegiant for a full refund.

The company will continue its flights from Lexington to Fort Lauderdale, Fort Meyers, Orlando and Tampa.
