LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - September 01, 2014) - Allegiant (NASDAQ: ALGT) announced today a new initiative to encourage paperless boarding throughout its network, saving passengers time and money. Beginning tomorrow, September 2, 2014, customers who require the assistance of a ticket agent to print their boarding pass at the airport will pay a $5 charge per boarding pass printed. Customers who use a mobile boarding pass on their mobile device or tablet, or check-in online and print their boarding pass at home will save themselves the small fee, while helping the carrier keep fares low and ticket lines short.
"Allegiant continues to find innovative ways to create a faster, easier travel experience for our customers while at the same time reducing costs," said Andrew Levy, Allegiant Travel Co. President and COO. "We now have mobile scanning technology in even the smallest airports in our network so that every Allegiant customer can `go paperless' and use their smartphone or tablet to check-in, pass through security and board their flight. The $5 boarding pass printing charge has been implemented to encourage customers to use the mobile boarding pass or print their boarding pass at home."
Throughout 2013, Allegiant worked with many small and mid-size airports throughout its system to introduce mobile boarding pass scanners at the security checkpoints in every airport the carrier serves. Fifty-five of the airports Allegiant serves did not previously have scanners in place. Allegiant purchased scanners for these airports, worked with the airports and TSA to have them approved and installed and reached out to other carriers serving the airports to ensure that the mobile boarding pass scanners the company installed could be used by other airline passengers.
Travelers can avoid paying $5 to have their boarding pass printed at the airport by checking-in online or on the Allegiant2Go mobile app and using express bag drop or proceeding directly to the gate. Through the Allegiant2Go mobile app, available for free on Apple and Android mobile devices, customers may check-in for their flight 24 hours prior to scheduled departure, add seat assignments, priority boarding or additional baggage and receive their boarding pass directly on their phone or tablet. The mobile boarding pass option will save travelers the time and trouble of waiting in ticket counter lines.
This charge does not apply to passengers who are ineligible for advance check-in such as passengers traveling with pets in the cabin, or to passengers with disabilities who are unable to print or download boarding passes.

The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise.

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise.
