Allegiant focusing on domestic but international has 'always been of interest': CFO

Allegiant EVP and CFO Greg Anderson, speaking at CAPA Live from Puerto Rico October 2021, stated (13-Oct-2021) expanding into international markets has "always been of interest for us", but noted: "There's a lot of low hanging fruit here in the US". Mr Anderson said the airline serves about 600 markets and "our network team feels that there's about a thousand incremental markets in the US that we can serve, and of those markets... roughly 80% of them have no direct nonstop competition". Mr Anderson said Allegiant is focusing on domestic operations, while international remains a medium to long term aspiration. He said Mexico "would make the most sense for us" for international destinations.
