Hello all...it has been close to a year since my last post and i figured i would jump back in. Anyway, obviously Allegiant operates a sizable number of flights from PIE to a bunch of destinations. I understand that the flights to the cities do not occur on a daily basis but how is PIE able to handle the influx of flights that Allegiant has and seems to be adding to on a routine basis? The last time i was at PIE was when ATA operated their mini hub (anyone remember flying any of their intra-florida 727 routes?) and i could recall that PIE is a relatively small airport. Any info? thanks and cheers  Smile


The next generation of aircraft is just around the corner!

PIE has 10 numbered gates and probably 1-2 more hardstands. I would doubt if G4 has more than two aircraft on the ground at any given time during operational hours.

The other operators are mostly Canadian charters and USA 3000, hardly the type of ops that would eat up a significant amount of ramp/gate space. PIE could support a much larger G4 operation without breaking a sweat. If you look at the masterplan on the airport website, there are expansion plans in the works: additional gate space, jetways, etc....

I believe that Allegiant uses gates 9 to 12.

Looks like PIE has no jet bridges? (not that Allegiant would use them anyways.)


Direct KNOBS, maintain 2700' until established on the localizer, cleared ILS runway 26 left approach.

No, PIE has no jet bridges. I actually love the ramp walking.

Just a brief story about PIE, I live about 2 hours door to door from the terminal. One day i had to make a 16 hour in advance booking to RFD for a family emergency. We get to the airport EARLY (1am) since we werent leaving our car there and that was when our ride could take us. SO we go to walk inside and the terminal is locked up. I couldnt believe it. So we sat on stone benches in 40 degree weather til about 5.... good times

There are many airports that close the terminal when there are no flight operations, and not just in the US. Most of them are smaller airports with a limited amount of traffic, but there are some large airports as well. NRT closes at 2200L (they have a very strict noise curfew) and doesn't open until about 0500L. They chase all the passengers out into the co-located train terminal. You can either wait there or get hotel accommodations.
