                ALLEGIANT REPORTS FEBRUARY 2013 TRAFFIC AND 
                      COMPLETION OF THE 166 SEAT PROJECT

Las Vegas. (March 05, 2013) Allegiant Travel Company (NASDAQ: ALGT) - today
reported preliminary passenger traffic results for February 2013. It is also
reporting that it completed the project of converting 51 MD-80 aircraft from
150 seats to 166 seats in the month of February.

"This project was a significant investment into our MD-80s and subsequently
the profitability of the company," said Andrew C. Levy, Allegiant President.
"The overall project came in under budget and on average we lost 100 pounds
per aircraft after the addition of the sixteen seats. We have also seen that
the incremental cost per customer for the additional seats has trended below
the amount of total ancillary revenue we received per passenger in January
2013. The MD-80 is a key component to the success of our company and we
expect to utilize these assets long into the foreseeable future."
