Allegiant Employees Vote On Refreshed Livery

Following an announcement to order 12 Airbus A320ceo aircraft, Las Vegas based Allegiant Air allowed its nearly 3,000 employees to vote on a refreshed livery for their new airplanes. The aircraft order, along with the new paint scheme, is part of a modernization effort for the airline. Allegiant is currently phasing out its aging MD-80s, transitioning to an all-Airbus fleet by 2019.

In order to decide on the livery for the new Airbus aircraft, more than 2,000 Allegiant employees took part in a vote. The vote consisted of two concept designs, displayed on the new airplanes.

Due to the company’s focus on giving leisure travelers access to sunny destinations throughout the year, Allegiant highlighted the orange and yellow accents within the paint scheme, while complementing the tail.

The design itself consists of color on the fuselage along with the Sharklets. It is an evolution of the current livery and will continue to grow alongside Allegiant’s modernizations efforts.
