After Frontier Airlines officially discontinued service at the Long Beach Airport on April 18, Allegiant and JetBlue Airways are now taking over the empty slots left behind.
The two low-cost air carriers have 90 days to start service, which includes selling tickets, and they are required to be flying within 180 days. Both Allegiant and JetBlue received one commercial airline slot each, after winning a lottery that included Delta and Alaska airlines.
