Slightly more than a year after making Bellingham International airport a base, Allegiant Air is trimming service from the Washington state facility.

The leisure carrier will discontinue flights between Bellingham and Reno, Nevada, after 29 May "due to lack of market demand", Allegiant president and CEO Maurice Gallagher Jr. says in a statement.

Flights from Bellingham to Reno started on 25 May 2007, with Bellingham being named a base on 1 March 2008.

The schedule adjustment comes as Las Vegas-based Allegiant readies to link its newest base, Los Angeles International airport, with Bellingham from 2 May.

Allegiant launched flights to Bellingham from Las Vegas in 2004 and has since added service to California cities Palm Springs, Oakland and San Diego. It also connects Bellingham with its Mesa, Arizona, base.
