Allegiant Flight diverted from Las Vegas to Missoula

An Allegiant Airlines Flight from Las Vegas to Missoula was diverted to Wendover, Nevada on Friday. The crew found that a light indicated there was an issue with the hydraulic system. The flight crew did not declare an emergency.

Jessica Wheeler, a Spokesperson for Allegiant says they made a safe landing and all passengers on board were OK.

Everyone got off the plane into the terminal and Allegiant ordered food and beverages for the 153 passengers on board.

A new aircraft was prepared for them. The delay lasted about 4 and a half to 5 hours, says Wheeler.  

All passengers got back to Missoula shortly after 6 p.m.

Allegiant gave passengers $75 off for their next flight due to the inconvenience.
