Allegiant Pulling Some Aircraft for Slide Inspections

Posted:

Flights may be affected in North Dakota after Allegiant Airlines pulled forty-nine planes out of service after a potential maintenance issue was discovered with slides on its planes.

Allegiant flight 436, bound for Illinois, was evacuated on the taxiway in Las Vegas Monday.

The plane's emergency slides were deployed, allowing the 144 passengers and six crew members to evacuate. Two people suffered minor injuries.

The airline is inspecting many slides on its MD80 fleet.

No Allegiant flights are scheduled to leave Bismarck until Sunday afternoon says airport manager Greg Haug.

Allegiant spokesperson Brian Davis says Sunday and Monday are busy flying days. He says he do not yet know if flights will be delayed, canceled or rescheduled those days.

As of this morning fifteen of the Allegiant fleet of MD80 planes have been found compliant and are back in service.

Allegiant has activated additional call center staff, and Allegiant will be contacting affected travelers directly. Customers may also sign up for flight alerts for individual flights at <https://www2.allegiantair.com/flight-status> or call 702-505-8888.
