Is Virtual Allegiant Air For You?

  • If you have a passion for aviation and virtual flight and you strive for excellence, we may be what you're looking for!
  • If you also happen to be a fan of the real Allegiant Air, we are proud to fly the colors!
  • Sick of being a "number"? Looking for a place to make friends or freedom from the politics and drama of other VA's, you've landed at the right website.

We're all about Options.

Our operations here at Virtual Allegiant Air are built around what our pilots want. One of the first things you will notice is that we don't quite mirror the real Allegiant airline precisely (many people would call us a "loose model" of the real airline).

  • While Allegiant flies nothing but MD-80s, we've expanded our fleet to include numerous aircraft. Our members wanted more options than just MD-80s, while still flying the Allegiant colors. By the way... real-world Allegiant loves our expanded fleet!!
    We still welcome those who are dedicated to flying the MD-80s, as they are the essence of Allegiant.
  • Allegiant is the unofficial "vacation airline". In real life, they profit in connecting small cities to the best vacation destinations in the US. We've expanded that vision to include vacation destinations around the world. Our members asked for more routes to more destinations... we answered.

We're not TNT... We DON'T Know Drama.

One thing you'll notice about us is how relaxed and laid back this VA is. We don't believe in overhead politics or drama. Of course, every group of people is going to have it's issues, but there's a difference in issues... and being afraid to say anything because you're too afraid you'll make someone mad.

Staff members are just regular members with additional duties... not gods.

What is the deal with all these VA's that are ran by dictators? Is this not the USA? C'mon guys! Flying is supposed to be fun. Somewhere in the mix of things, many va's lose sight of that and the management starts tweaking things to better fit the ego's of the higher-ups. Our staff/admin just have some extra jobs around the house. Yes, they are charged with "running" the VA, but that doesn't mean we have to pray to them!

So... What do You Want?

  • Do you want to forget about overhead politics and drama so commonly present in other va's?
  • Do you want to choose which plane you feel like flying today or do you want to stay strictly with the MD-80?
  • Do you want to fly to Orlando-Sanford on an actual Allegiant route... or do you want to take a long haul to the beautiful vacation destinations of London or Paris?
  • Do you want to submit your PIREP thru FSPassengers, FSACARS, or manually through our website?

At vAAY, It's Your Choice!


  • Flight Simulator
  • A VATSIM account with at least 20 Flight Hours logged
  • A working knowledge of IFR flight procedures and ATC interaction.
  • You must be willing to make at least one flight per 31 days!
  • You must be 18 or older. Not yet 18? We can waive the requirement on a case-by-case basis after a meeting on Teamspeak.

Don't have a VATSIM account? Maybe you aren't quite a pro at IFR flight procedures or ATC interaction... we are currently working on opening our Training Department, which will soon be available to get you ready to face the world of VATSIM and airline flight as a Virtual Allegiant pilot. Apply anyhow, and we'll get the ball rolling.

We also recommend having Teamspeak, as we are a personal group of friends and interact frequently using Teamspeak... but it's not mandatory.

Bellingham International Airport (IATA: BLI, ICAO: KBLI, FAA LID: BLI) is a public airport located three miles (5 km) northwest of Bellingham, in Whatcom County, Washington, USA. The airport has a single runway. Due to the close proximity to Canada, the Bellingham International Airport functions somewhat as a reliever airport to the Vancouver International Airport. On the Allegiant Air website the airport is referred to as Bellingham/Vancouver.

In early 2007, Bellingham International hosted service to three destinations by the short-lived Western Airlines. Later the same year, Skybus Airlines provided flights to their hub in Ohio, but shut down quickly like Western Airlines had done earlier. On March 1, 2008, Allegiant Air opened up their sixth base at Bellingham International Airport. The airline currently bases two McDonnell Douglas MD-80 aircraft in Bellingham as part of the expansion.

Airlines and destinations

Airlines ↓ Destinations
Alaska Airlines[1] Las Vegas
Allegiant Air[2] Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Oakland, Palm Springs [seasonal], Phoenix/Mesa, San Diego
Horizon Air[1] Seattle/Tacoma
San Juan Airlines[3] Eastsound, Friday Harbor, Lopez, Roche Harbor


In 1936, Whatcom County obtained 200 acres for an airport at the current airport site. Three runways are planned, but it takes almost four years to get the first 5000' x 150' runway cleared and paved. Temporary Port of Entry status is secured early, but the slow construction leaves it in a continually tenuous state - United Airlines will only base there if the field is safe enough for their DC-3's, and it maintains it's Port of Entry status. Ultimately they build a terminal, designed by F. Stanley Piper, and the airport is dedicated in 1940, having employed more than 500 people.

In 1940, the United States Army Corps of Engineers took over the facility and expanded it to three full runways, revetments for parking aircraft, and development of personnel quarters. During World War II the airport was used by Fourth Air Force immediately after the Pearl Harbor Attack for air defense of the Pacific Coast. It was later used by Air Transport Command and Air Technical Service Command as an intermediate ferrying field for Lend-Lease aircraft being flown to Alaska for subsequent transfer to the Soviet Union.

The USAAF closed the facility in September 1946, and it was turned over to the War Assets Administration for disposal. It slowly was returned to Whatcom County and was redeveloped as a civil airport in the late 1940s.

Allegiant Airlines Guidelines

In 1998 the Department of Transportation handed over an operating certificate for scheduled and charter service to Allegiant Airlines. Allegiant's first flight took off on October 15, 1999 from the airline's hub of Fresno, California to Las Vegas, Nevada.

Today, Allegiant is headquartered in Las Vegas and flies between its focus cities of Las Vegas, Phoenix-Mesa Gateway, Orlando/Sanford, Tampa/St. Petersburg and Bellingham, Washington to smaller cities that other larger airlines don't service.


  1. Allegiant Airlines has become one of the country's most profitable carriers because of its route structure. Allegiant doesn't fly to many major markets, but instead, focuses on service to smaller cities outside of major metropolitan areas. By doing so, the airline saves money by paying cheaper landing fees than they would have at major airports and is able to pass the savings onto the customer. In turn, these airports charge less for customer amenities such as parking and concessions.
  2. Schedules

  3. To help keep their costs down but provide maximum reach for this customers, Allegiant doesn't operate service to/from each of the destinations daily. For example, service from Phoenix-Mesa to Bismarck might only operate on Monday and Thursdays. When booking your ticket it's important to keep this aspect of Allegiant's business model in mind. Weather, cancellations and delays could be detrimental to your travel plans if service to your city of choice is intermittent.
  4. Fares

  5. Allegiant classifies themselves as a "low-cost" carrier which can be proven through their airfares. Although the actual cost of your airfare may be less expensive than other airlines, travel time and costs to and from the outlying airport should be factored in if your destination is the largest metropolitan area near Allegiant's airport. However, if your final destination is the city to which you are flying Allegiant will offer the most competitive fare.
  6. Seating

  7. Allegiant Airlines does offer assigned seating, in a single-class configuration. You may purchase the right to select your seat at the time your reservation is booked and right to pre-board the aircraft rather than selecting one of the remaining seats and being last to board on the day of travel. Both "upgrades" to your reservation are available on the carrier's website.
  8. Extras & Fees

  9. In an effort to keep air fares low, Allegiant charges for many passenger amenities. Beverages, food, pillows, blankets and Allegiant souvenirs are available for purchase on board the aircraft. The cabin crew sometimes offer raffles onboard as well.

About Allegiant Air by Wikipedia

Allegiant Air
Founded 1997 (as WestJet Express)
Commenced operations June 1998
Focus cities
Fleet size 46 (+24 orders)
Destinations 71
Parent company Allegiant Travel Co.
Headquarters Las Vegas, Nevada
Key people Maurice J. Gallagher, Jr. (President and CEO)

Allegiant Air is an American low-cost airline owned by Allegiant Travel Co. (NASDAQ: ALGT) headquartered in Las Vegas, Clark County, Nevada, United States. The airline operates scheduled and charter flights from focus cities at Las Vegas's McCarran International Airport, Orlando Sanford International Airport, St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport, Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, Bellingham International Airport, and at Los Angeles International Airport.[citation needed] On February 1, 2010, Orlando International Airport became Allegiant's newest focus city. Allegiant Air also announce that it will open a new focus city at Gerald R. Ford International Airport in Grand Rapids, Michigan on April 27, 2010. The airline also offers vacation packages through its Allegiant Vacations affiliate. Allegiant Travel Co. is a public company with 980 employees and 700 millon USD market capitalization.



Allegiant Air was founded in 1997 under the name WestJet Express.[1] After a trademark dispute with West Jet Air Center of Rapid City, South Dakota, and with the name's similarity to WestJet Airlines of Calgary, Alberta, the airline adopted the name Allegiant Air and received its operating certificate for scheduled and charter domestic operations in 1998. The airline also has authority for charter service to Canada and Mexico. Wholly owned by Allegiant Travel, the airline now has over 1,300 employees.

Scheduled service began on October 15, 1999, between Las Vegas and the airline's initial hub in Fresno, California, with Douglas DC-9-21 and DC-9-51 aircraft. Shortly after the shutdown of WinAir Airlines, Allegiant Air opened a hub in Long Beach, California, mirroring WinAir's network. The airline was unable to bring in enough revenue to cover its costs and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on December 13, 2000.

In June 2001, Maurice J. Gallagher, Jr. joined the airline and soon became its President and Chief Executive Officer. Having formerly worked with WestAir and ValuJet Airlines, Gallagher led the airline's transformation into its present form, moving the base to Las Vegas and focusing on smaller markets that larger airlines did not serve with mainline aircraft. From 2001, they have grown from 2 destinations to over 50 from Las Vegas, Orlando/Sanford, Florida, and St Petersburg, Florida. While CEO and President of ValuJet Airlines during the 90's the Federal Aviation Administration considered revoking the airlines operating certificate for numerous reasons. Also during this period, ValuJet flight 592 crashed into the Everglades with a total loss of life. ValuJet was temporarily shut down after the accident only to resurface as Air Tran Airlines after a merge with the latter.

On November 20, 2006, Allegiant Air announced that it had filed a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission in anticipation of a planned initial public offering of its Common Stock. It is listed on the NASDAQ Stock Market under the ticker symbol "ALGT".

On July 31, 2007, the airline announced plans to open a fourth focus city and operations base at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport in Mesa, Arizona, connecting the Phoenix metropolitan area to 13 destinations already served by Allegiant and one new destination. The airline began service out of their new focus city on October 25, 2007. The airport announced a 10,000-square-foot (930 m2) expansion in August 2008 which will increase the number of gates from two to four and allow Allegiant to triple the number of flights from Phoenix. The expansion will be funded by a loan from Allegiant which will be repaid by passenger fees.

On August 1, 2007, Allegiant also announced plans to open their fifth focus city and make an operations base at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, connecting the South Florida area to destinations already served by Allegiant. The airline began service in this focus city November 14, 2007.

On January 29, 2008, Allegiant opened their sixth base at Washington's Bellingham International Airport. The airline is basing two McDonnell Douglas MD-80 aircraft in Bellingham as part of the expansion. Routes served exclusively from Bellingham include Las Vegas, Reno, Palm Springs, San Diego, San Francisco, and Phoenix. Expansion in Bellingham has been largely driven by its proximity to Vancouver, Canada.

Along with Southwest Airlines, the airline was the only major United States airline to make a profit in the first quarter of the oil-driven economic crisis of 2008.

In March of 2010, Allegiant announced the purchase of six used Boeing 757s as part of plans to begin flights to Hawaii, with deliveries from spring of 2010 to the fourth quarter of 2011.

Business model

Allegiant Air operates a business model that focuses on:

  • Flights to airports which have limited or no service from mainline carriers
  • Using Smaller Airports except McCarran International Airport and Orlando International Airport
  • Attracting leisure passengers traveling to seasonal warm-weather destinations
  • Generating ancillary revenues in addition to ticket revenue
  • Maintaining low operational costs


Allegiant Air targets small cities with limited passenger airline service. Many of the airline's markets, such as Peoria, Illinois, and Allentown, Pennsylvania, are served only by commuter service requiring a connection at an airline hub. Allegiant, as of October 2009, has competition on only five of its 136 routes.

Other Allegiant destinations are secondary airports that are close to large metropolitan areas. For instance, Allegiant is the only carrier operating at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.


The airline's focus is on leisure travelers, particularly those in colder northern climates, going to warm-weather tourist destinations such as Las Vegas, Orlando, or Phoenix. The airline offers a lower frequency of flights and no amenities such as frequent flier points or on-board entertainment. As a result, Allegiant carries few business passengers.


The airline, which attracted investment from the Ryan family of Ireland, owners of Ryanair, follows a similar model which seeks ancillary revenue in addition to ticket revenue. Allegiant earns ancillary revenue through sales of food, beverages, and souvenirs on board as well as charges for checking luggage and advance seat assignments. The airline also offers hotels, cars, show tickets, and tour packages on its website, which generates commissions. The airline sold 400,000 hotel room nights in 2008. As of October 2009, the St. Petersburg Times reported that ancillary revenues were $33.35 per passenger. The total contribution of hotel and rental car packages is up to one-third of the airline's revenue.

Regarding the airline's reliance on additional revenue, Allegiant CEO Maurice Gallagher stated in an article that appeared September 2009 issue of the business journal, "Fast Company", that the advantages of their pricing structure were psychological. He went on to say, "We collect $110 from you at the end of your trip. If I tried to charge you $110 up front, you wouldn't pay it. But if I sell you a $75 ticket and you self-select the rest, you will."

Charter information

Allegiant also operates air charters which contribute 7% of its revenue. The company has two contracts with Harrah's Entertainment with two aircraft based in Reno, Nevada, and Laughlin, Nevada to ferry customers to Harrah's casinos. Additionally, Allegiant has two aircraft based in Tunica, Mississippi to support a charter contract to transport gaming customers to Harrah's casinos including Tunica and New Orleans. They also transport firefighters for the United States Forest Service and college basketball players and staff.

Allegiant had a contract to supply charter flights from Miami to four cities in Cuba. Flights began in June 2009. One aircraft was committed to the contract. The contract was for fixed-fee flying, meaning all they have to do is provide the dry aircraft and the flight crew. The contractor is responsible for all other costs including fuel. Allegiant ended this service in August 2009.


The airline tends to offer lower fares, which requires strict cost control. Part of the airline's lower cost structure includes operation of MD-80 jets, which the airline can purchase and refurbish for as little as $4 million. While the aircraft are less fuel-efficient than newer planes, Allegiant is able to purchase them outright for one-tenth the cost of a new Boeing 737. Given the low cost of ownership, Allegiant is able to fly the planes less (seven hours per day versus 13 hours per day at JetBlue), which helps keep labor costs lower. Overall, Allegiant operates with 35 full-time workers per plane compared to more than 50 at other carriers.

The airline does not accept subsidies from cities seeking service, but still seeks to maintain a low permanent operating cost at the airport. Allegiant rents ticket counters on an hourly basis and in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and Springfield, Missouri, many duties are handled by airport employees contracted to Allegiant.

The cost of ticket sales is reduced by selling tickets on its website and at airport ticket counters. The toll-free number was eliminated and Allegiant does not utilize internet travel agencies.

Criticism of the business model

Some airport officials have criticized Allegiant for shutting down routes or leaving markets quickly if they are not immediately profitable. In Kinston, North Carolina, the airport authority invested $60,000 for advertising Allegiant's routes and asserted that the load factor was 90% or better. However, they contend that the airline left the market when it did not earn enough ancillary revenue after only one year. In Columbia, South Carolina, the carrier departed after only two months as loads began to weaken from new legacy airline competition. Allegiant returned to Columbia in February 2009, but has since pulled out again as of late 2009.

The airport director in Worcester, Massachusetts, felt that Allegiant reneged on a commitment to serve the airport for five years given the use of federal grants to assist its startup. However, the airline replied that the market was immediately unprofitable and starting service there was a poor decision; flights were reported to be in the 80% full. Allegiant's flights average 90% full.

The US Department of Transportation also cited the airline in 2009 for not including their "convenience fee" in the initial price quote on the website.

Allegiant Vacations

Allegiant Vacations functions as an in-house package vacation vendor. The company has arrangements with 34 hotel properties in Las Vegas and 21 in the Orlando, and Daytona Beach, Florida, areas. The vacations division also has partnerships with several rental car agencies and show-ticket vendors. At least for some routes, air travel must be purchased along with hotel accommodations—a two-night minimum stay in the case of Champaign, IL, to Las Vegas, NV, for example.


Allegiant Air currently flies to 71 destinations throughout the United States. Except for the Bellingham to Las Vegas and Los Angeles routes, all bookings begin or end at one of the nine focus cities/operational bases; therefore, travel reservations between any of the other cities must be reserved through separate bookings and checked luggage claimed and re-checked in one of the nine focus cities.

Allegiant Air is actively pursuing the opportunity to serve Paine Field (PAE) in Everett, Washington, (25 mi (40 km) north of Seattle). The company has filed a complaint with the FAA at the county's opposition to the plan. Additionally, Allegiant Air is also very interested in serving Salem, Oregon -- conversations are continuing.

On February 1, 2010, Allegiant Air began operations at Orlando International Airport (MCO). Eventually, the Orlando/Sanford hub will be phased out by transferring flights to Orlando International over time.

From the fourth quarter of 2010, Allegiant Air will launch flights to Hawaii with newly purchased Boeing 757-200 aircraft.


An Allegiant Air McDonnell Douglas MD-83. (2007)

The Allegiant Air fleet consists of the following aircraft in an all-economy configuration (at March 5, 2010):

On March 5, 2010, Allegiant Air annouced the purchase of 6 Boeing 757-200 aircraft from a European airline for flights to Hawaii with the delivery of the first two in the next two months.

Incidents and accidents

  • On March 29, 2007, Allegiant Air Flight 758, a McDonnell Douglas MD-80 aircraft that took off from Pease International Airport in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, experienced a hydraulic failure that prevented the front landing gear from deploying. As a result, the aircraft circled in a holding pattern for over half an hour to lighten the fuel load, and then made an emergency landing at Orlando Sanford International Airport. Upon landing, some sparks and smoke were observed under the nose of the aircraft. The passengers and crew members evacuated via emergency evacuation slides. Only one injury was reported: a woman suffered a minor ankle injury during the evacuation, but she refused treatment. The airport was closed for some time due to the emergency.
  • November 18, 2009, an Allegiant Air McDonnell Douglas MD-87 suffered an engine failure shortly after takeoff from Wichita Mid-Continent Airport in Wichita, Kansas. A loud bang was heard coming from one of the engines shortly after takeoff. The flight was bound for Laughlin/Bullhead International Airport, Arizona. The aircraft returned to and made a safe landing at Mid-Continent Airport. One passenger received minor injuries during the evacuation.
  • March 12, 2010, an Allegiant Air McDonnell Douglas MD-87 suffered engine trouble on the right engine shortly after takeoff from Laughlin/Bullhead International Airport in Bullhead City, Arizona. A loud bang was heard coming from the right engine shortly after takeoff. The flight was bound for Santa Maria Public Airport. The aircraft returned to and made a safe landing at Laughlin/Bullhead International Airport. No injuries were reported.
