Allegiant Air is one of the most profitable low-cost airlines in the United States. With 91 aircraft and 4,000 employees, it has carved out a niche in serving smaller regional airports.
For the past 17 years Allegiant Air has had a simple strategy. It flies passengers from what it calls “underserved markets” – with little or no service by the major carriers – to popular holiday destinations such as Orlando, Los Angeles and Las Vegas while offering non-stop flights and low fares. But, this airline is more than just a carrier, it’s a full travel business, providing low-cost packages – not only on airline tickets, but for hotels, rental cars and entertainment. Using a mixed fleet of McDonnell Douglas MD-80s and Airbus A320 Family jets, Allegiant Air flies scheduled services from 118 US cities and provides charter flights throughout the US, Mexico and Canada.
