Allegiant Air (G4, Las Vegas McCarran) has announced in a press release that it will resume services to Fort Collins on November 21, 2019, seven years after it terminated flights to the airport in Colorado.

The LCC will operate to Fort Collins year-round from Las Vegas McCarran (4x weekly) and Phoenix Williams Gateway (2x weekly) using A319-100s.

Allegiant Air's routes will become Fort Collins' only scheduled services.

Allegiant used to serve the Coloradoan airport until October 2012. After the termination of the route, the airline said that the lack of an air traffic control tower at the airport was a serious hindrance. Subsequently, Fort Collins decided to invest in a virtual air traffic control tower, wherein ATC services are provided by controllers physically located away from the airport through an elaborate system of cameras. Final certification of the virtual ATC tower at Fort Collins is expected by year-end, the Coloradoan has reported.

Fort Collins is located some 70 kilometres north of Denver Int'l. In Colorado, Allegiant Air already serves both the state capital and Grand Junction.
