Door Still Open for Allegiant to Comeback to Airport

Share this post

Allegiant Air reported a lack of demand led to its decision to end service in a few months at the Gary/Chicago International Airport. Airport Marketing and Communications Liaison James Ward says while the last Allegiant flight to Florida out of Gary/Chicago is scheduled August 10th, there is a possiblity once the runway is completed, Allegiant may re-evaluate, and noted the door is still open for discussion for future opportuntities.
The airport's 166-million dollar runway expansion, extending the seven-thousand foot main runway by 19-hundred feet, is scheduled for completion in December, which gets the airport ahead of a 2015 Federal Aviation Administration's mandate that all airports have at least one-thousand feet of safety area for planes. Meanwhile, Ward says they are looking at bringing in other airlines to fly out of Gary.
