"This is tremendously exciting," said CIRA executive director Carl Olson. "Las Vegas is a tremendous destination for Central Illinois, and the combination of Frontier's new nonstop service with low fares is going to be a huge hit for all of Central Illinois."
Olson said Tuesday that CIRA is "very happy" the service has returned, and that it represents a "good relationship" that the airport sees as "growing stronger now."
"For Bloomington-Normal, this another destination here from the Central Illinois Regional Airport," Olson said. "We're very proud of that especially in a community and a market our size, to be able to have 10 destinations, to top flight business and leisure places all around the United States."

These guests will receive a sunflower lanyard, and airport staff will see that they may need extra help or time during their travel experience.
