Spirit Airlines is adding 14 new destinations to its flight service out of Orlando International Airport including daily flights to Puerto Rico and Colombia and less frequent flights to the U.S. Virgin Islands, and other locations throughout Latin America, the airline announced Thursday.
The new destination service will begin this fall, starting with a new daily flight to Aguadilla, Puerto Rico; and less frequent flights to Guatemala City, Guatamala; Panama City, Panama; and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republican; starting on Oct. 4.
Those maiden flights soon will be followed by flights to San Pedro Sula, Honduras; San Jose, Costa Rica; San Salvador, El Salvador; St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands; Bogota, Colombia; and Cartagena, Colombia.
Spirit also is adding new service to three additional stateside cities: Asheville, N.C.; Greensboro, N.C., and Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Spirit will now provide additional service from Orlando to eight countries and two U.S. territories. The airline now has nonstop service to and from 38 destinations, with up to 49 daily flights across the U.S., the Caribbean, and Latin America.
“We have been proud to serve Orlando for 25 years, and after more than doubling service last year, we are so proud to be expanding there yet again,” Bob Fornaro, Spirit’s chief executive officer stated in a news release distributed by the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. “Orlando is now one of our largest markets, and we have no plans on stopping our growth. The region is not only a wonderful, family-friendly destination, but it is well-positioned to now serve as a gateway to the Carribean and Latin America.”
“Spirit Airlines has a long history here at Orlando International Airport, and today’s announced plans for more investment into this market are a direct reflection of that long-time business partnership,” GOAA Chief Operating Officer Stan Thornton stated in the release.
