More Airbus to enrich Allegiant’s MD fleet

American low-cost airline Allegiant Air buys two additional A320 aircraft, on top of the four already announced earlier. The planes are being purchased from Philippine Airlines and are expected to enter the Allegiant fleet in the end of 2015.

The A320s will have 177 seats, like the nine other A320s the airliner operates. Allegiant is also expecting two A319s, which it adds to 5 already in service with another four coming. The A319s are ex-Cebu Pacific Air machines.

Allegiant Air is owned by the travel company with the same name. It currently has a fleet of 67 aircraft, including 47 of the legendary McDonnell Douglas MD-81/82/83/88s and 6 Boeing 757s.
