The Fort Collins/Loveland Municipal airport is seeking a new airline carrier, following the October 29Â service cancellation of Allegiant Airlines.
â€œTheir scheduled service [will] end on October 29,â€ said airport operations manager Larry Mack. â€œOfficially, they said it was an internal economic decision by the airline to leave,â€ he added.
Until recently, Allegiant airlines was the sole airline carrier for the Fort Collins/Loveland airport.
â€œLast year, about 50,000 people flew out of here on Allegiant,â€ Mack said, â€œso thatâ€™s who itâ€™s going to affect.â€
The airport is currently seeking a new airline company to take up its commercial airline services, however, Mack feels optimistic.
â€œItâ€™s proven itself to be a good market,â€ Mack said. â€œNear term, we hope to have somebody in place by this time next year.â€
