RADNOR, Pa., May 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The law firm of Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP reminds Allegiant Travel Company (Nasdaq:ALGT) (“Allegiant”) investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California against Allegiant on behalf of purchasers of Allegiant publicly traded securities between June 8, 2015 and April 13, 2018, inclusive (the “Class Period”). 

Important Deadline Reminder:

 Investors who purchased Allegiant securities during the Class Period may, no later than June 25, 2018, seek to be appointed as a lead plaintiff representative of the class. For additional information or to learn how to participate in this action please visit https://www.ktmc.com/new-cases/allegiant-travel-company#join

According to the complaint, Allegiant focuses on the provision of travel services and products to residents of under-served cities in the United States. The company offers scheduled air transportation on limited frequency nonstop flights between under-served cities and leisure destinations.

The Class Period commences on June 8, 2015, when The Enquirer reported that the company issued a statement in connection with an Allegiant plane that was forced to make an emergency landing in Florida after smoke was detected in the cabin shortly after takeoff. The company stated afterward that the safety of its passengers and crew were its “number one priority.”

According to the complaint, on April 13, 2018, CBS News announced it would air a 60 Minutes segment on Sunday, April 15, 2018, criticizing the company’s safety and maintenance record. Following this news, shares of Allegiant fell $14.20 per share or over 8.59% to close at $151.05 per share on April 13, 2018.

Then, on April 15, 2018, CBS News aired a 60 Minutes report revealing that: (i) Allegiant aircraft had a high number of serious mechanical incidents from mid-2015 through October 2017; (ii) Allegiant lacks the infrastructure and personnel to adequately maintain their aircraft; and (iii) Allegiant has discouraged pilots from reporting safety and maintenance issues. Following this news, shares of Allegiant fell $4.65 per share or over 3% to close at $146.40 per share on April 16, 2018.

The complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, the defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Allegiant lacked adequate systems to ensure its aircraft were being properly maintained; (2) consequently, Allegiant was not operating responsibly and ethically, and providing safe working conditions for its employees; and (3) as a result, the defendants' public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

If you wish to discuss this action or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check (James Maro, Jr., Esq. or Adrienne Bell, Esq.) at (888) 299–7706 or (610) 667–7706, or via e-mail at info@ktmc.com.

Allegiant investors may, no later than June 25, 2018, seek to be appointed as a lead plaintiff representative of the class through Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, or other counsel, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member.  A lead plaintiff is a representative party who acts on behalf of all class members in directing the litigation.  In order to be appointed as a lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member’s claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class in the action.  Your ability to share in any recovery is not affected by the decision of whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff.
