Allegiant Air (Las Vegas) today (July 30) announced its intention to lease nine Airbus A319 aircraft from GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS) and to lease and eventually purchase ten Airbus A319 aircraft from Cebu Pacific Air (Manila). The introduction of the A319 aircraft will support Allegiant’s growth opportunities.
Allegiant plans to have the first two of these aircraft in operation in the second quarter of 2013.
Allegiant currently operates 58 MD-80 aircraft, four Boeing 757-200 aircraft and owns an additional two Boeing 757-200 aircraft.
