“The announcement of service to Hawaii is a great achievement for Allegiant,” Andrew Levy, Allegiant president, says in a release. “Service to Las Vegas and Fresno reflects a moderate growth plan by our company. With the addition of the four aircraft we have acquisitioned, we plan to expand service to other mainland cities in the future. We anticipate the service will be very popular, especially when customers take advantage of Allegiant’s low pricing when bundling their air, hotel and car rental package.”
