HONOLULU (AP) — Allegiant Air will be offering flights between Honolulu and Los Angeles.

The Las Vegas-based budget airline announced the new service Tuesday. The flights will operate twice a week starting Oct. 30.

Hawaii tourism officials say the new service will provide $26 million in visitor spending and $3 million in tax revenue annually for the state.

Introductory one-way fares starting at $99 are being offered. Tickets must be purchased by July 14 for travel by Feb. 13.

Allegiant began flying to Hawaii in 2012 with flights from Las Vegas and Fresno, Calif. The airline had previously said it would suspend routes to Honolulu beginning in August from seven cities. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports Allegiant says that the Boise, Idaho and Spokane, Wash., flights will be reinstated for the holiday season.
