Allegiant's heritage, evocative of the warm 'sun' leisure
destination that is Las Vegas and our charter destinations."

for the airline by Tiami Designs, Atlanta, Georgia. "It may be
cliche, but this livery really does represent more that just a new
coat of paint," said Gallagher. "This new brand identity refreshes
the original Allegiant symbol, making a bolder statement, boasting
a higher level of recognition, and reflects our growth
