Allegiant Travel Company said that it has signed a forward purchase agreement to acquire six Boeing 757-200 aircraft. The introduction of the 757 aircraft will enable Allegiant to expand its leisure travel strategy into Hawaii with flights to be operated by Allegiant Air, LLC, its airline subsidiary. Two aircraft will be delivered within the next two months to be placed into service in the fourth quarter of 2010. One aircraft will be delivered in November 2010 and another in January 2011 to be placed into service in the first half of 2011. Two aircraft will be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2011 with planned in-service dates in the first half of 2012.
The six 757 aircraft are sister-ships and have been in service with a single European operator since original delivery from Boeing. The aircraft come equipped for extended twin-engine operations (ETOPS), as required for long overwater flights. . Allegiant expects to spend between $75 million and $90 million through 2012 acquiring and preparing this fleet for service. While Allegiant is able to acquire and prepare the aircraft for cash, it believes it will finance some portion of the purchase. Allegiant is acquiring this fleet with the express purpose of serving Hawaii. For more information, visit www.allegiantair.com.
