Allegiant Travel Orders 50th Airbus Aircraft

Las Vegas-based Allegiant Travel has signed a firm order for one Airbus A320 aircraft, the airline’s 50th commitment to an Airbus A320 Family member, and the first time they have purchased an aircraft directly from Airbus.

Allegiant currently owns a fleet of 34 Airbus A320 Family aircraft, with 17 in their own service (7 A319s and 10 A320s), and the balance either pending service or leased out to other operators.

The newly ordered A320 will be powered by CFM56 engines.

“By the end of 2016, Allegiant will be a majority Airbus carrier as measured by available seat miles,” said Jude Bricker, Allegiant Travel Company senior vice president of planning. “This is an exciting milestone for Allegiant having taken delivery of our first Airbus aircraft just in 2013.”

“What happens in Vegas is what is happening around the world,” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer – Customers. “Allegiant is among the growing ranks of low-cost carriers that appreciate the A320 Family as the perfect balance of comfort, economy and efficiency. Allegiant just marked its 50th consecutive profitable quarter and our aircraft in their fleet helped achieve that accomplishment.”
