Mexico calling for budget carrier Allegiant

The US low-cost airline Allegiant has taken a big step and put in an application with the US Department of Transportation to offer scheduled service between the United States and Mexico. 

The budget carrier, best known for linking small-to-medium cities to top vacation destinations, is hoping to capitalise on international traffic.  "Unlike other U.S. carriers, Allegiant has always been laser-focused on leisure travel and providing access to affordable, non-stop flights for those who wouldn't otherwise be able to go on vacation," said Maury Gallagher, Allegiant chairman and chief executive officer. "Offering service to Mexico will provide a whole new array of options for travellers to discover world-class destinations that may have been previously out of reach."

"We believe that providing scheduled service to Mexico will also be of great economic benefit, by stimulating traffic and providing additional competition in the international leisure market," he continued. "It will not only bring exceptional value to travellers but will also enhance both tourism and business impact in the communities we serve."

The DOT application is the first step in the process for Allegiant to begin scheduled service to Mexico. Projected dates and locations for the commencement of service will be announced at later dates as the process moves forward. Allegiant currently serves more than 450 domestic routes.
