The airline will lease 9 of the type from GE Aviation. Allegiant will also purchase an additional 10 of the type from Cebu Pacific of the Philippines. The a319 is a brand new type for Allegiant, which currently operates MD-80′s on US mainland routes and 757′s on flights to Hawaii. The airline operates Low Cost flights across the United States with a focus on the Pacific Coast and Las Vegas. Allegiant is popular because it connects passengers in small cities that don’t get airline service otherwise to popular vacation destinations.
