Allegiant offers select free services to US military

Allegiant (NASDAQ: ALGT) has launched Allegiant Honors – a special program to support and thank US active duty and retired military for their service with select free services, the carrier said.

Under the Allegiant Honors program US active duty military, retired military veterans, members of the National Guard, military reserve, and their dependents are eligible for free services when they fly Allegiant.

These services include up to three pieces of checked baggage, one carry-on bag, one pet in cabin, courtesy boarding pass printing at the airport, and free seat assignments, pending availability. In addition, active duty military may board flights with priority boarding at no charge, and will not be charged a change or cancellation fee due to a change in orders.

All optional items and services will be added to itinerary at the airport — eligible individuals should reserve in person with valid military I.D. Those who have paid for items which qualify for a military waiver may visit the airport ticket counter for a refund of eligible fees.

Las Vegas-based Allegiant offers industry-low fares on an all-jet fleet while also offering other travel-related products such as hotel rooms, rental cars, and attraction tickets. Beginning with one aircraft and one route in 1999, the company has grown to over 80 aircraft and more than 300 routes across the country with base airfares less than half the cost of the average domestic roundtrip ticket.
