GARY, Ind. (AP) - Allegiant Air plans to end service to Gary-Chicago International Airport in August.

The Times of Munster and the Post-Tribune of Merrillville report airport officials announced Friday night that the service started about 15 months ago is expected to end on Aug. 10. But officials say Allegiant remains open to discussing future opportunities at the airport.

Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson said the airportís runway expansion project and a potential public-private partnership have accelerated discussions with other airlines.

Starting on June 5, Allegiantís weekly flight service will switch to Wednesdays and Saturdays with one-way flights starting at $70.
