View of Allegiant’s entrance at their Headquarters in Las Vegas
I at all times get pleasure from it after I get the chance to take a look at an airline’s headquarters. It’s an inside have a look at the airline’s tradition and naturally it’s at all times good to image the place they work when interacting with them as a media contact or buyer.
Allegiant is positioned in a brand new enterprise park simply exterior of downtown Vegas. It’s away from the flashing-lights and casinos and in an space that simply appears to be like just some years previous.
When pulling up, it was not apparent it was Allegiant’s HQ since there was no signage exterior, despite the fact that their roof prominently has “Allegiant” on it. Nevertheless, after getting into the foyer, there was no query.
Their foyer is 2 tales with two Allegiant solar’s on the ground. The most effective half was the duplicate of an MD-80 tail used as their entrance desk. Not too shabby. After checking in, I had the chance to sit down down and wait on some airline seats. They have been blue and leather-based like Allegiant’s, however fairly a bit bigger. They will need to have been taken from one other airline’s first-class or enterprise seat — I wasn’t capable of inform which.

I really like strolling by way of an airline’s operations to be reminded how most individuals there actually get pleasure from their job and have a smile. I at all times really feel many passengers really feel like there are airline individuals simply ready to screw them over. The good a part of Allegiant’s smaller operation is it didn’t take lengthy to get by way of all departments. From those that take reservations to President and CEO’s Maurice J. Gallagher, Jr’s desk. Talking of him, he doesn’t even have an workplace. All of the Allegiant executives work in cubicles out within the open, bettering their interplay with different workers. After all the executives have a bit of larger than others, however they sort of deserve that.
There are additionally fairly a number of Allegiant fashions unfold across the facility. Most are MD-80’s, however there have been a number of Boeing 757’s. The most important 757 mannequin was positioned proper in the course of all the chief’s cubicles (photo).
That is most likely the good entrance desk ever.
A second constructing holds Allegiant’s coaching facility. They’ve the rear part of an MD-80 used for flight attendants. It’s raised above a gap within the flooring, the place workers can apply evacuations. I want to seek out a type of for my house.
All by way of out the ability there was fairly a little bit of Allegiant spirit. Not solely the place many partitions painted in Allegiant blue, however many desk areas have been exhibiting off vacation spirit with a ornament contest. Virtually each space had decorations and one thrilled employee truly turned their cubicle right into a ginger-bread home.
It’s enjoyable to think about the parents sitting within the operation middle whereas flying again house to Seattle, planning the plane’s flight and dealing deicing. I solely want they offered these tables they used as their entrance desk.
