Allegiant Travel Company has announced plans to establish a two-aircraft base at McGhee Tyson Airport in Knoxville, Tennessee. The Las Vegas-based company is investing more than $50 million to establish its new base of operations, which will house two Airbus aircraft. The company plans to begin its base operations at McGhee Tyson Airport in October 2018. “Allegiant has already seen great success in the Knoxville/Great Smoky Mountains area, and establishing a permanent base affords the opportunity to embed even deeper into the community and contribute further to the local economy,” said Keith Hansen, vice president of government affairs for Allegiant.
