Allegiant celebrates its one millionth flier at CVG

Las Vegas-based Allegiant Air sometimes irks fliers with its “pre-reclined” seats and carry-on bag fees, but the low-cost carrier showed its generous side on Wednesday when it gave the one millionth Allegiant passenger flying out of Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport a pass good for two people to take a flight a month on Allegiant from CVG for a year.

The winner, Angela Stewart of nearby Lima, Ohio — who was onboard the 1:45 p.m. flight to Orlando with her family — also received a voucher good for a year of free parking at the airport, courtesy of CVG.

The celebration at the gate included balloons, Allegiant-branded cookies, goodie bags and one other surprise: All passengers on the flight to Orlando received two vouchers, each worth $200, good for future flights on Allegiant.

“Allegiant began flying out of CVG a little more than two years ago, and their growth has been tremendous,” said Candace McGraw, chief executive officer of CVG, in a statement,  “Not only have they increased to serving 14 nonstop markets, but they’ve established a base of operations here in Cincinnati.”
