THE GAME PLANE is produced by Alpine Labs and filmed in-flight on Allegiant scheduled service.
"Allegiant prides itself on being an innovator in the airline industry, so the opportunity to be a part of the first-ever in-flight game show is a perfect fit," said Brian Davis, Allegiant Travel Company Vice President of Business Development. "The energetic, fun atmosphere of the show is an extension of our vacation-focused brand, and the amazing prizes won by the contestants -- our passengers -- highlight all of the amazing things our destinations have to offer."
"We are thrilled to partner with Allegiant on this amazing opportunity to showcase a whole new setting for the game show," said Alpine's Kevin Abrams. "Our goal is to remind viewers how much fun going on vacation is and that there are still exciting new ways to visit the game show format. THE GAME PLANE is an example of how we are introducing an original take on production."
