Allegiant Passengers Stranded At St. Pete-Clearwater Airport

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) _ Allegiant Air has canceled six flights at St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport following an emergency landing of one of the airline’s planes.

The airline cited “operational needs” as the reason for canceling the flights on Thursday.

The Tampa Bay Times reports an Allegiant Air flight made an emergency landing at the airport on Wednesday, due to pressurization problems. The flight was heading to Pittsburgh when it returned to St. Petersburg. It was the second emergency landing at the airport this month.

Not all Allegiant flights were canceled at the airport on Thursday.

Officials from the Nevada-based airline apologized for the disruption and said they’ll offer affected passengers a $200 voucher for a future flight. Officials say they’re also waiving change fees and fare differences for passengers who have to reschedule.
