Low-cost vacation carrier Allegiant Air is expected to announce a “major” expansion to their network on Feb. 24. The airline is expected to start moving into a couple larger markets, slightly breaking away from it’s reputation of connecting just small- and medium- sized cities to it’s focus cities. Allegiant released a press release Tuesday morning with details.

“We are pleased to announce this expansion and bring new convenient, low-cost vacation options to five new communities, as well as new destination options for those communities we currently serve,” Senior Vice President of Planning Jude Bricker said.

AirlineGeeks.com began in February, 2013 as a one-man (er… teenager, rather) show. Since then, we’ve grown to have 20 active team members, and yes, we’re still growing. Some of us are looking to work in the aviation industry as professionals when we grow older. Some of us are still trying to decide what we want to do. That’s okay though, because we’re all here for the same reason: we love the airlines. We’re the youngest team of airline industry journalists out there.
