Allegiant to get more A320s

Allegiant Air of Las Vegas will acquire 14 Airbus A320 family jetliners, and will purchase two additional A319s it leases. It will also buy six A319s when they are delivered in late 2014 through 2015 from lessor GECAS, which agreed to lease the aircraft to Allegiant in 2012. The 14 A320s that Allegiant will acquire includes 12 A319s now leased to an European airline until 2018.
