In a writeup from USAToday it was announced that Allegiant Air will depart from Redmond, Oregon on August 12th. Airport officials believe that at Redmond they cater more to business fliers so with the departure of Allegiant it verifies what they have suspected. Consultants are currently assisting the airport to find out what destinations the local fliers want.

Again, with this Allegiant departure it will free up aircraft for somewhere else. Any bets?

I was expecting this to happen when AZA went to a sesonal route... It is what G4 does set up shop at one airport and than when loads go down, move on to the next one.

I would never of thought RDM caters to business travelers? The area is a getaway place to go for some sun and fun for most Oregonians. It's mostly sunny year round. You have Mt Bachelor, Sunriver, many large lakes, golfing, Deschutes river and other high desert activies. It's too bad they are losing an airline.

RDM caters to well-heeled leisure travelers....not exactly G4's typical customer.

Allegiant passenger demographics are higher than many realize.

In this 2011 management presentation, they listed their customer demographics as:
Mean Income of over $104,000
86% are homeowners

It's exactly why my folks moved to the Redmond area years ago, it is a vacation destination for us here in Oregon and Washington. I'm surprised G4 can't make RDM work, at least AS, UA & DL can. I remember living right in Redmond and hearing G4's DC-9's taking off over the town, you could hear it where ever in town you'd happen to be.

They're pretty limited without connections.

If someone surveyed indicated a very high income, doesn't it skew the mean significantly? The analysis is using mean instead of median which is atypical. Some of the Allegiant airportsare from areas that don't have a high local median income if that means anything.

Yes G4 is limited, Redmond / Bend area has maybe 125,00 people, that's not a lot of base for flying. I know there are markets G4 serves that have less, but Bend / Redmond was really hit hard by the economy, although Roberts Field just finished the airport and tripled it's size. This was approved when Redmond was the fastest growing area in Oregon.

The old saying, "build it, and they will come" is not really applying here. RDM has grown from 2 RW flights a day and a few JT SWM's or PAG's, but has not seen mainline since RC bought RW and dropped the SEA-PSC-PDX-RDM-LMT-RDD-SFO DC-9's single daily runs in each direction. I guess QQ made a quick in and out, and Pacific Express BAC-1-11's.
