Allegiant, Harrah's extend charter air services pact

Allegiant Air earlier this month extended its air charter agreement with Harrah's Operating Company, Inc., a subsidiary of Harrah's Entertainment, the world's largest gaming company.

Under the three-year agreement, Allegiant will dedicate three 130-seat, MD-87 aircraft to the program. The new contract begins Jan. 1.

Allegiant has provided air charter services for Harrah's since 2002 and has aircraft based in Tunica, Miss., and Reno and Laughlin, Nev., to support the program.

"We're pleased to grow our longstanding relationship with Harrah's," Maurice Gallagher, Jr., president and CEO for Allegiant Travel Company, said in a statement. "We deeply appreciate their vote of confidence in continuing our successful relationship."
