In an appearance at the Airport Revenue News Conference in Las Vegas, Allegiant CEO Maurice Gallagher discussed the future of his company. Among the notable comments from the media coverage:
- G4 will nearly double in size in the next two to three years with plans to serve 70 cities.
- Gallagher figures there are about 130 small cities with airports capable of serving Allegiant's jets.
- Allegiant struggled last year to cope with the rising cost of fuel, and Gallagher said it would be important to control costs in the future.
- Gallagher was critical of airports that turned their fuel concessions over to contracted vendors. He said Allegiant has passed on serving some cities because an independent vendor priced fuel too high to make it affordable for the airline to go there.
The number of new cities should be enough to satisfy all guessers for awhile.
