MOHAVE COUNTY–Air service to Phoenix Sky Harbor is back. The Laughlin/Bullhead International Airport has announced the re-introduction to services from our airport to Sky Harbor in Phoenix.
The services will begin on July 19 and will be under the direction of Elite Airways.
“We are happy to welcome Elite Airways’ scheduled service to Laughlin/Bullhead City,” said Jeremy Keating, Airport Director for the Mohave County Airport Authority. “We know there is significant demand for service to Phoenix and we think Elite will be an excellent partner with the community.”
Elite Airways will begin twice-weekly service with flights in each direction, on Sundays and Thursdays, allowing for a full week, or a long weekend, in Phoenix.
“Elite Airways is pleased to launch twice-weekly nonstop jet service to Phoenix, which will return an important service route to local passengers who want the convenience of flying directly in and out of Laughlin,” said John Pearsall, President of Elite Airways. “Laughlin has always been an important charter destination for Elite, and we’d like to thank airport and city officials for their support of our new scheduled service at Laughlin/Bullhead International Airport.”
Flights will depart IFP on Sundays and Thursdays at 1pm, arriving into Phoenix at 2pm. Return flights, also on Sunday and Thursday, will depart Phoenix at 10:45pm and land at IFP at 11:45pm. Elite will also operate same-plane service to Rochester, Minnesota, in which passengers can buy a single ticket and stay on the aircraft during a short stop at Phoenix.
Elite Airways is a full-service airline. It will operate a CRJ-700 jet on the route, seating 70 people in a comfortable two-by-two seating configuration. Elite Airways passengers receive free onboard snacks and beverages, a free first checked bag up to 50 pounds, and no ticketing change fees.
