Two new routes for Spirit

Spirit Airlines will be launching two international destinations to its rapidly expanding network, it has announced this week.  The bright yellow liveried airline will start services to new cities in Ecuador and Haiti. 

The routes will start from Fort Lauderdale this spring, expanding further what is already Spirit’s largest base of operation.

From 22nd March the ultra-low-cost airline, Spirit will begin flying from Fort Lauderdale to Guayaquil, Ecuador. The carrier plans to operate a daily round-trip flight throughout the year. Then on 12th April, they will launch a service to Cap-Haïtien on the north coast of Haiti. The schedule for this route will start off with three flights a week but may increase over time subject to demand. 

Spirit are pleased with their new Guayaquil routes, promoting it as the “Gateway to the Galapagos.” The city will become Spirit’s only destination in Ecuador at this time.  

Cap-Haïtien International Airport is the second busiest airport in Haiti and will add better connectivity to the region, the new service will also compliment Spirits other Haitian route to Port-au-Prince. 

"We are excited to add even more international options to our growing network,” Mark Kopczak, Spirit’s Vice President of Network Planning, said in a statement. 

Once these new routes begin, Spirit will be offering 54 destinations from Fort Lauderdale spread throughout the US, Caribbean and Latin America.
