LAS VEGAS, Nev. — The parent company of Allegiant Air said Friday that damage from Hurricane Ian has forced the company to delay the planned opening of a resort north of Fort Myers, Florida.

Allegiant Travel Co. said its Sunseeker resort was selling rooms as early as next May, 2023, but hurricane-related delays forced the resort to delay its opening until next September.

The company said that the extent of the damage is still unknown. Final damage assessment and availability of construction resources may result in the new opening date being moved up or back, the company said in a statement.

Las Vegas-based Allegiant said access to the resort was limited after last week’s storm, but damage appeared to be limited because the facilities are being built 16 feet above the normal high tide line and the company has built a levee. along Charlotte Harbor.
