Bonanza Air Lines was an airline (known at the time as a "local service" air carrier as defined by the federal Civil Aeronautics Board) with routes in the western United States (and eventually Mexico) from 1945 until it was merged with two other local service air carriers to form Air West in 1968. Its headquarters was initially located in Las Vegas, Nevada and was later moved to Phoenix, Arizona in 1966. The airline began scheduled flights in 1945 with a single-engine Cessna between Nevada cities Las Vegas, Reno, Tonopah and Hawthorne. During the 1950s and early 1960s the airline expanded into Arizona, Southern California and Utah, including Phoenix, Los Angeles and Salt Lake City. Until 1978 Bonanza operated the only scheduled nonstop flights between Las Vegas and Reno. It became an international airline soon before it merged with Pacific Air Lines and West Coast Airlines to form Air West with flights to Mexico operated with McDonnell Douglas DC-9 jetliners from Phoenix and Tucson to La Paz, Mazatlán and Puerto Vallarta. Air West would later be renamed Hughes Airwest.
