Allegiant Air is pulling their service from the Fort Collins-Loveland Municipal Airport. They will be ending flights to Northern Colorado as of Monday and they are the only commercial airline to service Fort Collins-Loveland. The decision was announced in August, but no explanation was given as to why they were pulling the flights. A few weeks later they said it was due to safety concerns as the airport has no control tower.
Officials at the airport said that the airline has never once mentioned the lack of a tower in all their dealings. According to airport Director Jason Licon, at this point the airport is conducting an investigation with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to see if there have been any safety concerns filed with them. Allegiant has been serving the airport since 2003 and nothing has changed since then, so Licon does not see how the lack of a tower can be valid.
