FAA begins early inspection of Allegiant Air operations

DALLAS – Federal safety officials are reviewing operations at Allegiant Air two years ahead of schedule, spurred by incidents including an aborted takeoff and a plane that landed low on fuel.

The Federal Aviation Administration routinely evaluates airlines every five years but moved up Allegiant’s review from 2018.

The review began in early April and is expected to run through June.

Allegiant did not immediately respond when asked for comment.
