Allegiant, whom many of us are familiar with as the airplane travel company, is adding an operations base in Austin, Texas. To be more specific, they will be locating to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport here. In order to do this, they are investing $75 million in this Right to Work state. So this will potentially mean more and better flight options. But the best part is that it’ll create 89 new jobs. And, these will be high-paying jobs too!
