The outage, which began earlier in the day, slowed the carrier’s customer check-in and affected its text-alert system.

Of the 26 flights affected, eight were canceled and 18 were rescheduled to operate Saturday, the Las Vegas-based low-cost carrier that serves leisure destinations said in an updated statement. The airline had 250 flights scheduled to operate on Friday.

Shares of Allegiant closed up 2 percent at $120.80 on Nasdaq.
