Allegiant Air is a domestic, low-cost airline with hubs in Phoenix, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Austin, Honolulu and several Florida airports, as of 2015. Reservations, trip management, route maps, schedules and a list of other destinations are available on the Allegiant Air website.
Allegiant Air began operating in 1997 with a low-cost business model that is unique in the United States market. Allegiant Air flies from smaller cities to select vacation destinations. The airline fleet includes mostly larger aircraft that the company attempts to fill by limiting its flights to peak travel days. The abbreviated flight schedule and destination list ensure lower overhead costs for the airline. Allegiant Air passes the savings on with reduced ticket prices for consumers. They sell tickets on a stand-alone basis or combine them with other travel services such as hotels, rental cars and entertainment tickets to create vacation packages.
Allegiant Air has a down-to-basics approach to air travel. Travelers can customize their trips on the company website. Additional amenities and services, such as in-flight drinks and snacks, extra baggage tickets and priority boarding, are available for an additional fee. In addition to scheduled flights, Allegiant Air also offers charter services within the United States and to Canada and Mexico.
