Virgin America announced new daily flights to Las Vegas from Dallas Love Field.

The San Francisco-based carrier said the new service will start on December 1 and tickets are currently on sale. It will offer two daily departures from Love Field to Las Vegas.

“Las Vegas is an iconic travel destination and Dallas travelers deserve an option that gets them there in style, whether they are traveling for a fun weekend getaway or headed to one of the thousands of trade events or conventions that Las Vegas hosts each year,” said Virgin America chief executive David Cush.

The airline said it is ending its daily non-stop service between Dallas and Austin on November 30 so it can use the aircraft on its Las Vegas service.

Virgin America launched service at Love Field last October after the Wright Amendment restrictions expired. With the new Las Vegas flights, the carrier will have 17 daily departures from Love Field which includes flights to Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York LaGuardia and Washington Reagan.
