Terminal move sets the stage for Allegiant’s LAX expansion on May 19

Ex EI-DSD, delivered on January 11, 2018

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.

Allegiant is hiring 184 pilots in response to increasing travel demand

Allegiant Air plans to hire 184 pilots in the coming months, a nearly 19 percent increase to the company’s current roster of approximately 1,000 pilots.

The new hires are part of the company’s growth strategy to meet increasing demand for air travel. The first group of pilots will begin training in July, with classes scheduled to run every few weeks through early 2022.

As states have eased pandemic restrictions and the COVID-19 vaccine has rolled out across the country, demand for travel has rebounded. Allegiant, which focuses on linking travelers in small-to-medium cities to world-class leisure destinations, was the first domestic carrier to restore capacity to pre-pandemic levels.

Allegiant loses $57.9 million in the first quarter

“The momentum reported last quarter picked up in earnest towards the back half of the first quarter with booking trends showing meaningful improvement,” stated Maurice J. Gallagher, Jr., chairman and CEO of Allegiant Travel Company. “We completed the quarter with earnings per share of $0.42 on year over two-year revenue declines of 38.2 percent, continuing the trend of sequential revenue improvement. We were the first domestic carrier to restore capacity to pre-pandemic levels, with first quarter scheduled capacity up 3.1 percent as compared to 2019. Booking trends have been particularly impressive with average daily bookings for the months of March and April exceeding the same time period in 2019. Furthermore, the booking curve appears to be normalizing and more closely resembling what we saw in 2019. April’s results came in as strong as March helped by a ten-point increase in load factor from 54 to 64 percent. We expect capacity in the coming months will be equal to or greater than our 2019 levels.

“During the past year, in the face of this terrible pandemic, we were focused on improving ourselves. I believe we have done that. We have improved our cost structure substantially. Our balance sheet is in excellent shape. As of March 31, our net debt has decreased. Our cash balances have increased, and by the end of the second quarter we expect to have total liquidity of $1 billion, or more than double our year-end 2019 balance. We were able to double our cash balances without an equity raise or substantial increases in debt. We benefited from the payroll support programs as well as federal income tax refunds of the substantial tax payments made in the past years. Our shareholders have seen their company’s balance sheet improve dramatically – perhaps more than any other company in this space – in spite of the setbacks and hardships imposed by this unprecedented event.

“I could not be more bullish on our outlook. Going forward our full-year, 2021 capacity should exceed 2019 capacity levels. We expect sequential scheduled service revenue improvement with revenue down just six to ten percent as compared with 2019 levels. This revenue growth should continue through the remainder of 2021. We continue to separate ourselves from the competition, operating more capacity and generating positive EBITDA and earnings. I believe now more than ever our low-cost, low-utilization model designed to provide affordable leisure travel is our competitive advantage, which will help drive us towards returning to our goal of $6 million in EBITDA per aircraft.

“We would not be in the favorable position we are today without the continued efforts of the 4,000 employees throughout our network. Their hard work has been integral to successfully navigating the most difficult year in the industry’s history. It is their efforts that have enabled us to effectively manage capacity while cutting costs from the business – both critical components to ensuring a sustained return to profitability.”

Allegiant announces its first agreement with the Teamsters

Allegiant Air Airbus A320-214 WL N252NV (msn 7868) BFI (Nick Dean). Image: 949885.

Allegiant Air today announced that the company and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT), representing Allegiant’s workforce of maintenance technician and related employees, have reached an agreement in principle on all remaining open issues for the first collective bargaining agreement between the parties. The agreement in principle is subject to finalization between the parties and ratification by the employee group, which includes line and heavy maintenance technicians as well as stores employees and some administrative maintenance staff.  A ratification vote is expected to occur by the end of July, 2021. Allegiant currently employs 415 maintenance technician and related employees.

The process of negotiating a first collective bargaining agreement for Allegiant maintenance technician and related employees began in January 2019. The parties had temporarily suspended negotiations early in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but talks resumed in September.  The International Brotherhood of Teamsters was most recently certified as the group’s exclusive representative on March 7, 2018.

Allegiant is encouraged by an uptick in demand in March, traffic is down by 26.2% from 2019

Allegiant Air Airbus A319-112 N302NV (msn 2387)  (Vegas Golden Knights) LAS (Gunter Mayer). Image: 953312.

Allegiant Travel Company reported its preliminary passenger traffic results for March 2021 as well as first quarter 2021.

“We are encouraged by the meaningful improvement in customer demand throughout the month of March,” stated Gregory Anderson, executive vice president and chief financial officer. “Average daily bookings for the month exceeded average daily bookings during the same time period in 2019. The significant improvement in March demand coupled with our industry-leading cost structure enabled us to generate positive EPS and EBITDA for the month of March, excluding the benefit from the payroll support grant. For the March quarter, we expect adjusted1 CASM, excluding fuel, to be down 3 to 4 percent, year over two-year.”

Capacity was up roughly three percent, when compared to 2019, with March capacity up 14 percent,” stated Drew Wells, senior vice president, revenue. “Although this caused some load pressure, our focus remains on generating positive cash flows and optimizing profits. We continue to expect first quarter total revenue to fall in the middle of our previous guide of down 35 to 40 percent, when compared with 2019. We remain optimistic about peak summer travel. With national vaccination rates steadily increasing and average daily bookings trending in the right direction, we expect sequential revenue improvements into the second quarter.”

Allegiant sees a “moderate increase in travel demand” in February

Allegiant Travel Company today reported preliminary passenger traffic results for February 2021.

“Over the last month, we have been pleased to see a moderate increase in travel demand,” stated Drew Wells, senior vice president, revenue. “We met the increase in demand with increased supply, with February ASMs up roughly 6 percent from February of 2019, focusing on total revenue and profitability rather than unit metrics like load factor. We expect first quarter total revenue to be down between 35 and 40 percent on a year over two-year basis, a significant improvement over the fourth quarter. First quarter capacity is expected to be up between 2.0 and 4.5 percent, when compared to the first quarter of 2019, but we will continue to refine as dictated by demand.”
