Allegiant eyes international routes and loyalty programme

Allegiant Air stated it will look into operating international routes to Mexico and Canada, as well as setting up a loyalty programme (airlinereporter.com, 16-May-2011). The carrier hopes to have a fleet of six Boeing B757s to supplements its fleet of MD-80 aircraft by the end of 2012. Allegiant has already announced its intent to operate to Hawaii and President Andrew Levy noted the aircraft could be used to operate to the northern part of South America and Mexico.
