Allegiant Air (G4, Las Vegas McCarran) has announced it will establish a two-aircraft base at Indianapolis Int’l Airport with effect from in February 2018.
According to a statement, the Las Vegas-based ULCC will invest more than USD40 million to establish the base which will house two Airbus aircraft.
Allegiant began operating at Indianapolis International Airport in February 2015 and now serves Austin Bergstrom Int’l, Destin-Fort Walton Beach, Fort Lauderdale Int’l, Jacksonville Int’l, FL, Las Vegas McCarran, Myrtle Beach, Orlando Sanford, Phoenix Williams Gateway, Punta Gorda, FL, Savannah Int’l, and St. Petersburg/Clearwater.
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation said it offered Allegiant Air LLC up to USD1,000,000 in conditional tax credits based on the company’s job creation plans. These tax credits are performance based, meaning until locals are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives.
Once operational, Indianapolis will become Allegiant’s fourteenth aircraft base after Bellingham, Cincinnati Int’l, Destin-Fort Walton Beach, Fort Lauderdale Int’l, Las Vegas McCarran, Los Angeles Int’l, New Orleans Int’l, Oakland, Orlando Sanford, Phoenix Williams Gateway, Pittsburgh Int’l, Punta Gorda, FL, and St. Petersburg/Clearwater.
