Starting today,  May 2nd the US ultra-low-cost-carrier Spirit Airlines officially started a number of new services from Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU). 

The airline’s signature bright yellow and black Airbus jets will now connect Raleigh-Durham International Airport to Baltimore/Washington, DC, Boston, Detroit, Fort Lauderdale, New Orleans, Chicago, and Orlando with nonstop flights. 

The new routes also create dozens of connections to other Spirit destinations in the United States, as well as the Caribbean and Latin America.  Raleigh-Durham is Spirit’s third destination in the Tar Heel State, joining the Piedmont Triad and Asheville and will soon be joined by Charlotte on June 20.

“The time has finally arrived for us to begin serving the Research Triangle, and we are ready to do just that,” said Ted Christie, Spirit Airlines’ president and CEO.  “With eight daily flights to some of our biggest destinations and connections to many more, we believe our service and value will resonate in the Raleigh-Durham region.  In less than a year, Spirit has gone from no footprint in the state to serving four destinations by June 20, and I want to thank North Carolinians for embracing us.”

“We are happy to welcome Spirit Airlines as the newest carrier connecting the Research Triangle community to the world,” said Michael Landguth, president and CEO of the Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority. “Spirit’s low fares and suite of nonstop destinations will add to the world-class airport experience business and leisure travellers expect from RDU.”
