DEWITT TWP. — New flights from Lansing to Las Vegas are taking off from Capital Region International Airport.

Sun Country Airlines, a discount carrier based in Mendota Heights, Minn., brought back the direct flight to “Sin City” on Dec. 22. Flights now are scheduled on Mondays and Thursdays, the airline said. Las Vegas flights are scheduled through April 28.

Sun Country will begin flying seasonally from Lansing to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, on Feb. 1. There will be nonstop weekly service on Fridays through April 5.

Sun Country also operates seasonal nonstop flights to Orlando, Fla.; Cancun, Mexico; and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. It has daily flights from Lansing to Minneapolis and Washington, D.C.
