Allegiant going to Concord.....



The Las Vegas-based company also recently announced that it will invest $50 million to establish a new base in Concord, creating at least 66 high-wage jobs and basing two Airbus aircraft there. 

Located minutes from Charlotte, Concord is one of the nation's fastest-growing cities, with a robust business infrastructure and a diverse workforce. Home to some of North Carolina's top tourist destinations, including NASCAR's famed Charlotte Motor Speedway and Concord Mills, the city boasts a historic downtown district and a wide variety of entertainment and leisure activities for visitors and local residents. Concord is the largest city in Cabarrus County, with a population of more than 94,000.

"We're excited about making Concord a permanent base, and further establishing Allegiant as a hometown airline for this high-performance city," said Keith Hansen, Allegiant's vice president of government affairs. "With a growing and diverse population seeking affordable vacation travel, and as a regional destination for race enthusiasts, arts fans and more, Concord is an ideal location for an Allegiant base. Having locally-based operations will mean opportunities for expanded hours, as well as more – and more frequent – flight offerings for residents and visitors alike."
