Allegiant launched its first flight Friday at Stockton (SCK). As normal the first flight was full and celebrated with full fanfare, Elvis and Vegas showgirl et al.

But looking at the media coverage 2 things stood out to me.

First, Allegiant's projections for the next few months at SCK. They say that current bookings look like they will have load factors of 88% in June, 90% in July and 86% in August. Impressive for a city that has seen no service in 3 years.

Second, the sources of passengers. According to one of these articles:
"Based on tickets booked through November, 62 percent of passengers will come from San Joaquin County; 17 percent from Stanislaus County; 7 percent from Sacramento County; 2 percent each from Contra Costa and Calaveras counties; and the remainder from throughout Northern California."
For those unfamiliar, San Joaquin is the Stockton area, Stanislaus is Modesto area, Contra Costa is the eastern Bay Area and Calaveras is the gold rush foothill area. These articles include quotes from passengers from Roseville (north of Sacramento) and San Jose.

Glad to see the service get off to a good start.

I am happy to see Allegiant is having a positive beginning in Stockton. The foothills areas like Jackson, Angles' Camp and Grass Valley have grown which makes Stockton an easy access airport. Hopefully, Allegiant's presence will enable other airlines to begin service there to LAX and SFO. Sacramento airport is about 45 minutes from Stockton. Oakland is about 70 miles. The 580 is more and more congested with makes flying from Oakland or San Francisco a time consuming and expensive experience.

It's good to see G4 doing well from their SCK service. I hope it will be a long-term relationship. Hopefully, QX or AM will be the next airline serving SCK.

Will Allegiant be considering frequency increases?
