Tue. 3:37pm: Allegiant completes aircraft repairs
Allegiant Air has returned to service all of its MD80 aircraft that had been grounded for emergency slide overhauls, an official at the Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport said today.
No flights in or out of Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport were affected.
Several Allegiant Air flights at other airports nationwide had been canceled or postponed in recent weeks after the airline began overhauling slides on 52 MD80 aircraft. The work began following an emergency evacuation Sept. 16 Allegiant flight at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas.
