Allegiant Air Tour Bus Stops in Grand Junction
KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.- An airline carrier made a stop in Grand Junction on Tuesday, but not by plane.
Allegiant Air employees stopped at the Mesa Mall as part of their national bus tour, and they did not come empty handed.
The company's “Vote for Vacation” tour bus was promoting its “Right to Vacation” campaign.
“As an airline, we really want to get to know who our clientele is and this is one of the best ways to do it,” said Carl Zablotny of Allegiant Air. “We want to get out there to all of those small undeserved cities and actually see and meet some of our clients.”
One Grand Junction area resident won two round-trip tickets to one of their favorite vacation destinations, and all participants were entered to win their grand prize, which is free flights for four years.
The first 100 people who attended the event received a special tax break that can be used on future vacation packages through Allegiant Air.
“I like it because with the voucher, it can help take a vacation and Allegiant is great,” said Michelle Kolb, a Grand Junction resident. “I go to California a lot, so it's worth it.”
Grand Junction was one of 77 stops on the company's bus tour.
