Allegiant Air plans to open base operations in Concord, NC on October 7, making Padgett Regional Airport the airline's 21st base. The Las Vegas-based carrier will invest USD50 million to establish the two-aircraft facility. "We're excited about making Concord a permanent base, and further establishing Allegiant as a hometown airline for this high-performance city," said Keith Hansen, Allegiant's Vice President of Government Affairs. "With a growing and diverse population seeking affordable vacation travel, and as a regional destination for race enthusiasts, arts fans and more, Concord is an ideal location for an Allegiant base. Having locally-based operations will mean opportunities for expanded hours, as well as more – and more frequent – flight offerings for residents and visitors alike."
