Item 2.03             Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.
As of August 27, 2012, Allegiant Air, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Allegiant Travel Company (the “Company”), entered into nine separate Lease Agreements for the lease of nine Airbus A319 aircraft from GE Capital Aviation Services, LLC (“GECAS”).  The Company will guarantee the leases. Each of the leases will be for an eight year term, with rental obligations paid on a monthly basis.  The Company currently expects to receive delivery of the aircraft in accordance with the following schedule: fourth quarter 2012 – 1 aircraft; first quarter 2013 – 1 aircraft; third quarter 2014 – 1 aircraft; fourth quarter 2014 – 1 aircraft; first quarter 2015 – 1 aircraft; and second quarter 2015 – 4 aircraft.

The Company estimates that based on the delivery schedule referenced above, the total obligations for nine aircraft will aggregate approximately $125 million over an 11-year period, with aircraft delivery dates, interest rate fluctuation and maintenance adjustments affecting the actual amounts and timing of the payments.
