About this Order
This consent order concerns fare displays by Allegiant Air, LLC (Allegiant) on its website (www.allegiantair.com) that failed to comply with the Department’s rule on full fare advertising, 14 CFR 399.84, and the related statute, 49 U.S.C. § 41712(a). The carrier assessed a “convenience fee” on all ticket purchases except those made at one of the carrier’s airport ticket offices. Under section 399.84, this fee should have been included in initial fare quotes on Allegiant’s website. This order assesses a compromise civil penalty of $50,000 and directs the carrier to cease and desist from future similar violations.
