On Wednesday (February 15, 2023), Spirit Airlines announced that as they celebrate over 20 years of service to Puerto Rico, they will add five new routes to San Juan, while increasing services on four existing routes.

Puerto Rico is our number one destination in the Caribbean, with its rich history and culture, renowned beaches, tropical rainforest and the world’s brightest bioluminescent bay.
