Las Vegas-based travel company Allegiant has decided to halt work on a USD 1 billion tourist resort in southwest Florida after suffering losses its airline as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Allegiant began work on its Charlotte Harbour Sunseeker resort last year, but has now decided to close down the site for at least 18 months and may seek new investors. It said “This action is to ensure the wellbeing of all parties involved with Sunseeker Resorts, including team members, construction workers and future guests … This was not an easy decision, but we are adhering to the latest information and protocols from the world’s leading health experts and government authorities.”

Suffolk Construction, the Miami-based contractor for the scheme, will now close the site and remove its cranes.

The resort, which is made up of about 500 hotel rooms and 180 apartments, was to have completed its USD 420 million first phase this year. However, passenger numbers on the company’s Allegiant Air budget carrier fell 97% in April, plunging the company into a USD 33 million first-quarter loss.
