Allegiant requires passengers to wear face masks during all phases of travel

Allegiant Travel Company has announced that, beginning July 2, all customers will be required to wear face masks during all phases of travel, the company said.

Passengers must wear masks at the ticket counter, in the gate area, during boarding, on the aircraft and during the flight. This policy update builds on Allegiant´s comprehensive health and safety program by bringing an extra layer of protection to customers, crew and team members at Allegiant airports.

Customers can use their own face mask or covering, or the mask provided in Allegiant´s Health and Safety Kit. Children ages 2 and under are exempt from the new policy, as are passengers with disabilities or documented medical conditions. Passengers will also be allowed to remove face coverings to briefly eat or drink.

This policy expands Allegiant´s comprehensive Going the Distance for Health and Safety program, an integrated approach that includes advanced cleaning protocols, in-cabin air quality, boarding procedures and more.

Las Vegas-based Allegiant (NASDAQ: ALGT) is an integrated travel company with an airline at its heart, focused on connecting customers with premier leisure experiences – from vacations to hometown family entertainment.
