Allegiant Air retires 757-200 fleet
The low cost carrier once operated a fleet of six 757-200s, beginning in 2010. This was the first time that Allegiant had operated another aircraft type besides the MD-80, but has since added a significant Airbus fleet.
In 2011, Allegiant flew its first 757 route from McAllen, Texas (MFE) to Las Vegas (LAS). Allegiant commenced Hawaii service in 2012, serving Hawaii from its hubs at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport (AZA) and Las Vegas.
Hawaii was also served from Bellingham, Washington, Los Angeles (LAX), Stockton, California (SCK), and Eugene, Oregon (EUG).
The 757s were gradually withdrawn from the fleet beginning in 2015, with the Hawaii to Bellingham route ending in 2014, followed by the Phoenix-Mesa, Eugene, and Stockton routes, which were all served during exclusively during the summer, being cancelled for the 2015 season citing low demand.
Service to Los Angeles was then axed in 2015, leaving Las Vegas as the only surviving route from Hawaii which ended on October 28th.
Allegiant initially planned to use the 757s for service to Mexico in addition to Hawaii, but these plans never materialized.
The 757s were initially supposed to leave the fleet in August of 2016, but Allegiant elected to continue Hawaii service for one more year, requiring two 757s to remain in the fleet.
The final two 757s, N905NV and N906NV, were flown to Southern California Logistics Airport in Victorville on October 31st. Source : Aeronautics
