Boutique Air suspends flights to Las Vegas
Boutique Air recently issued this news release:
Boutique Air has announced the cessation of its service in the Las Vegas area beginning February 15. Until that point, the airline will continue to run scheduled service to and from the city of Merced, California and Phoenix, Arizona, which began in October of last year.
All passengers that booked a flight to or from Las Vegas on Boutique Air from February 15th onward will be notified of the change and will receive full refunds.
Citing economic discrimination on behalf of McCarran International Airport's policies which privilege larger carriers, Boutique Air will regretfully cease service while continuing to avidly search for a financially feasible solution for operating to the popular destination. The company has been in discussion with the FAA, McCarran airport officials, and state legislators in pursuit of a viable solution for reinitiating service in the future, but is unable to provide a timeline at this moment.
On Friday, February 5, Boutique Air issued a formal Part 16 complaint against McCarran's executive leadership after months of inhibited progress. The complaint has been on the grounds of economic discrimination, the basic text version of which is available below. While the company awaits a response from the FAA and McCarran officials, it must regrettably cease service for the time being.
Additional questions or requests for further information can be forwarded to Boutique Air's customer service e-mail at email@example.com.
