Allegiant Air to mark 40 million passengers

Allegiant on Wednesday reported its 40th consecutive profitable quarter in the volatile U.S. airline industry, and announced the company is approaching its 40 millionth passenger.

“We are so fortunate to have a great team of people – from management to frontline employees – who have worked very hard to get us here,” said Andrew Levy, Allegiant Travel Company president.

Allegiant focuses on nonstop leisure travel. Allegiant says it has remained flexible, aggressively managing schedules, capacity and fares to meet demand in individual markets, including the Mahoning Valley.

In the coming months, Allegiant will carry its 40 millionth passenger, and continues to be a growing, thriving airline focused on making more vacations possible for more people. In 2012, among the top U.S. commercial carriers, Allegiant had the highest load factor, second in year-over-year capacity growth and third in year-over-year traffic growth, all while offering the average base fare below $90.
