Allegiant Travel Company (Allegiant Air) is setting the stage for its next phase of growth at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The Las Vegas-based airline, which has served LAX since 2009, will relocate its operations to Terminal 1 and the new, state-of-the-art West Gates at Tom Bradley. Allegiant will begin service from its new LAX location on Wednesday, May 19.
The move affords the leisure travel-focused carrier opportunity to offer even more of the affordable, nonstop flights which are its hallmark. Anticipating the busy summer travel season, Allegiant will increase its capacity in Southern California by locating a fourth Airbus A320 aircraft at LAX. Los Angeles has been a full-time base for Allegiant aircraft and crew since 2016.
Allegiant’s all-nonstop network is unique among U.S.-based airlines, focused on bringing leisure travelers from small-to-medium sized cities to premier vacation destinations with convenient local access and affordable fares. Allegiant customers reach the people and places that matter most without the extra time and hassle of stops, connections and layovers.
Allegiant currently serves 33 cities in 21 states from LAX, including new service to Indianapolis, Ind. beginning May 28; to Omaha, Neb. and Rapid City, S.D. beginning June 4; and to Shreveport, La. Beginning July 2. More than half the cities Allegiant serves from LAX are unique to the airline. Since starting service in 2009, Allegiant has flown more than 4.2 million passengers through LAX.
