Tampa Bay Students Visit Allegiant Air

Students from Tampa Bay’s 9th Term class have continued to tour a variety of aviation related job-sites – most recently Allegiant Air. The field visits have offered insight into the different sectors of aviation and have given soon-to-be graduates a glimpse at the careers that they are about to embark upon.

The Tampa Bay Times has reported that Allegiant carries about 95 percent of the passenger traffic at the St. Pete-Clearwater airport, which reported a record 1.6 million passengers in 2015. Students were able to view the busy maintenance facility, as well as gain a greater understanding of the low-cost carrier and its expanding routes.
