Press Release March 29, 2005

ALLEGIANT AIR ANNOUNCES NEW NONSTOP SERVICE TO ORLANDO FROM LANSING, MI.
Now the Official Airline for Sunshine Offers Nonstop Service to Both Orlando and Las Vegas

(Lansing, MI., March 29, 2005)— Allegiant Air, LLC today announced new, nonstop jet service to the fun and sun of Orlando, Fla. from Lansing, MI. Beginning May 26, the same airline that brought the Lansing community low-fare, service to Las Vegas now offers low-cost, nonstop service to Orlando, with introductory fares as low as $59* one-way.

The self-proclaimed “Official Airline for Sunshine” will launch the new scheduled service from the Lansing Capital City Airport (Lansing) to Sanford International Airport (Orlando) with complete vacation packages including air, hotel and car rental starting as low as $241** for three nights, per person based on double occupancy.

“We are extremely pleased to expand the Allegiant brand of low-fare, nonstop, jet service to Orlando,” Maurice J. Gallagher, Allegiant Air president & CEO, said. “This is an exciting new addition for our airline and our customers as we launch the only scheduled nonstop service between Lansing and Orlando.”

The new flights will operate four times weekly, with service Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Flights will depart Lansing at 6:55 p.m. arriving in Orlando at 9:20 p.m. Flights leaving Orlando will depart at
3:45 p.m. arriving in Lansing at 6:20 p.m. (all flight times are local.) Allegiant will utilize full-size, 130-seat MD-87 jet aircraft on the route.

"We started our partnership with Allegiant Air with a goal to put the fun back in flying," Robert Selig, Executive Director of Lansing's Capital City Airport, said. “Orlando is the number one destination market for Mid-Michigan travelers. I am confident the new nonstop Lansing-Orlando service on Allegiant Air will be equally as successful as our popular Allegiant Air flights to Las Vegas."


The airline said that its strong demand from current customers and input from local community leaders indicates that the Lansing area will welcome the new nonstop flights and low fares to Orlando as an alternative to connecting flights or long drives to other airports.

The Allegiant Vacations division of the company will offer low-cost packages with 18 of Orlando’s most exciting hotel properties and three in Daytona Beach. Partner properties include The Swan, The Dolphin, The Hilton in Lake Buena Vista and the Radisson Parkway. Low-cost packages are available to include hotel, car and amusement park tickets for additional savings.

Reservations may be made beginning April 4, 2005 and can be made through the company’s website at www.allegiantair.com, the airline’s Reservations Center at 800-432-3810, or professional travel agents.

Allegiant’s $59* one-way introductory fare must be purchased at www.allegiantair.com by April 20, 2005 and is valid for travel through June 26, 2005. After the introductory fare period, regular fares on the route will range from $89 to $199 each way and vacation packages will start as low as $301 (per person, based on double occupancy.)

Alrighty, two down (MSN and now LAN) with two to go!

Do you think NW will respond [to ORL, of course]?

Are they announcing one flight per business day this week? The news seems to trickle in slowly on Allegiant's SFB plans. But that's part of Allegiant's charm I guess.


Next Up: STL-EWR-STL for my first mileage run!

OKC would be nice...shockingly they don't have any nonstop air service to Orlando at all. O&D market is shown just over 150 pax per day. TMA was the last to offer the service, along with LAS (until Allegiant came in), and that lasted all of 2 months. Of course it didn't seem TMA was committed to OKC by any stretch.

Schedule-wise, it looks like G4 accounted for one of the MD-87's. I imagine the next two cities will account for the second MD-87's. Whoa! I'm the master of the obvious!!! LOL!

Again, there seems to be another MD-87 for sale (?) here in Wichita.
