Allegiant announced Tracy Tulle has been appointed to the role of senior vice president of flight crew operations.

Tulle, an industry veteran who has led Allegiant’s in-flight services since 2012, is the first to serve in this new role that unites the airline’s flight operations and in-flight services departments under one umbrella.

She also served as a business course instructor at Wisconsin Lutheran College in Milwaukee before joining Allegiant, where she has served as the company’s vice president of in-flight services since 2013. She also currently chairs Allegiant’s company-wide Customer Experience Leadership Team.

As senior vice president of flight crew operations, Tulle will lead a team of more than 2,100 Allegiant employees, including 850 pilots and 1,200 flight attendants across the company’s network.
