More Info On Allegiant Air.

Mon Aug 29, 2005 6:33 am

Can anyone tell me about the airline Allegiant Air which is based out of Las Vegas? I recently flew in and out of LAS and saw several of this airlines MD-80 series aircraft. How long have they been in business? What is the route structure? What are there fleet plans?

No, you care correct they began in Fresno, and that was the first route they flew. Fresno-LAS. They flew that and charters for a long time before slowing expanding, and now expanding much faster.

Really cool airline.
-One of few US airlines that don't fly into Chicago, New York, LA, or basically any other metropolitan area (except for LAS, SFB)
-One airline that has created its own niche in small towns across the nation.
-An airline that expands beyond imagining.
-Uses MD-80s in one of the AWESOMEST liveries ever.
-Based in LAS. Privately owned.

G4 (Allegiant Air) is big into vacation packages, and all of their flights are operated strictly to/from LAS and SFB, no connections (well I suppose you could connect, but that would be quite involved...). There are quite a few threads on them, mostly concerning their rapid expansion; here are a few recent ones:
Allegiant Announces Portsmouth, NH To SFB (by INTENSS Aug 26 2005 in Civil Aviation)
Allegiant To Increase SBN-LAS Flights (by FATFlyer Aug 24 2005 in Civil Aviation)
Allegiant Announces SFB To Stewart N.Y. (by Iowaman Aug 23 2005 in Civil Aviation)
Allegiant Announces South Bend-SFB & More PIA-LAS (by FATFlyer Aug 18 2005 in Civil Aviation)
