Allegiant Air will end flights to Wilmington, North Carolina, later this month.

The Las Vegas-based carrier's last day of service from the airport will be 23 January, it says. Allegiant is operating twice-weekly between Wilmington and Orlando Sanford.

"We are always disappointed to end service in a market," says Eric Fletcher, Allegiant's manager of airports. "We thank Wilmington International Airport for their partnership and apologise to any travellers who are inconvenienced by this decision."

Allegiant began serving the airport on 4 April 2008. Following Allegiant's withdrawal, Wilmington will be served by only Delta Air Lines and US Airways. The airport has non-stop flights to Atlanta, Charlotte, New York LaGuardia, Philadelphia and Washington National, schedules in Innovata show.
