Join us in a round of applause to recognize HGR for receiving Outstanding Safety and Security Performance and Zero Mishandled Bags Achievement Awards from Allegiant — the self-proclaimed “Official Airline for Sunshine”.

“My hat is off to the stellar employees at HGR that make travel seamless for our customers,” said Phil Ridenour, director, Hagerstown Regional Airport.

“Passenger safety and smiling customers are our top priorities, so to be recognized for those achievements is a testament to our commitment to expanding transportation opportunities for travelers in the quad-state region.”

As part of the 2014 Allegiant Leadership Conference, HGR staff were honored for their commitment to making flying an enjoyable experience between Washington County and Orlando Sanford International Airport.
