How an airline got on Fortune’s “100 fastest-growing” list

Allegiant Air is on the influential list for the second year running

Only one airline is on Fortune magazine’s annual list of the “100 fastest-growing companies”, and it has a winning strategy. Allegiant Air is on the list for the second straight year. While bigger airlines focus on connecting regional airports with hubs, Allegiant’s idea for passengers is simpler – fly people direct. It connects a number of popular destinations in the US, such as Las Vegas (where it’s based) and cities on the west coast and in Florida and Arizona. Allegiant has posted 34 consecutive quarters of profitability and is the only airline in the top 100. It will add Hawaii to its destinations by next summer.
