The US budget carrier based in Las Vegas, Allegiant reported preliminary passenger traffic results for April 2019 earlier this week.  The airline that specialises in linking small-to-medium cities to world-class vacation destinations, saw passenger numbers up by 9.8% on its scheduled services.  

"As stated on our last earnings call, we expected to see pressure on load factor in the month of April due to the significant capacity growth between the end of March and the beginning of the Easter travel period," stated Drew Wells Vice President of revenue and planning. "The decline in April's load factor was not outside of our expectations."
