Allegiant Air picks up its first Alabama-built Airbus jet

This week the Airbus Final Assembly Line delivered its 69th jet, which became the first U.S.-built A320 in Allegiant Air's fleet.

Based in Las Vegas, is a low-fare carrier whose routes connect cities all over the country, including New Orleans, Jacksonville, Savannah, San Diego, Orlando, New York, Washington, D.C., Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Austin. The company described its newest jet as "the 11th of 13 new A320 aircraft scheduled for purchase directly from Airbus, to be inducted into Allegiant's fleet this year."

Previously, Allegiant's new jets had been built in Toulouse, France, and Hamburg, Germany. Allegiant has 99 Airbus jets in service or on order and plans to be flying an all-Airbus fleet by the end of the year.
