MANHATTAN, Kansas (AP) – Allegiant Air plans to end its twice-weekly flights between Manhattan and Phoenix, starting Feb. 23.

The Las Vegas-based carrier began service between Manhattan’s Regional Airport and the Phoenix last November. It said Monday any customers with reservations after Feb. 23 will be contacted for a full refund.

The city said in a news release that 3,000 passengers used the flights since the service began. Airport director Peter VanKuren says Allegiant decided those numbers did not meet its expectations.

Manhattan Regional still offers daily flights to Dallas and Chicago through American Eagle.
