Allegiant: 'We try to fly as little as possible at times when there is low demand'

Allegiant Travel Company VP fleet and corporate finance Tom Doxey, speaking at the CAPA Airline Fleet & Finance Summit 2016, said (04-Mar-2016) the carrier is "very unique" in its business model. Mr Doxey explained: "Unlike many ultra low-cost carriers we try to fly as little as possible at times when there is low demand…And then we fly as much as possible at times when there's a lot of demand." Mr Doxey added: "We drop from like eight hours per day down to four hours per day in our lowest month of September…I don't know any other airline that does capacity management like we do month to month."
