11:00am - 11:30am Case Study: Allegiant Air – a different kind of LCC
Thursday Mar 1 - Grand Ballroom
Allegiant has always positioned itself differently in the airline/travel space. As an integrated travel provider, the company typically uses older aircraft to operate a schedule of less than daily flights from small to mid size US cities to large tourist destinations, including Las Vegas and Orlando. The carrier also generates ancillary income from selling hotel rooms, vacation packages and rental cars – and in its latest move, the ULCC plans to build a resort in southwest Florida. This presentation will provide an overview of Allegiant’s unique business model, and the carrier’s plans for restoring cost competitiveness as it forges a new revenue stream and transitions to an all Airbus fleet.
