A second daily frequency will be added at Newark from February 1, 2020. Additionally, the airline will offer a second daily flight to San Juan from Orlando (MCO), Philadelphia (PHL) and Baltimore/Washington (BWI). The additional flight from Orlando will be added on February 21, 2020, while the second daily flight from Philadelphia will start on March 1, 2020. A second daily flight from Baltimore/Washington will be available from May 21, 2020. In Thursday’s announcement, Spirit Airlines’ Vice President of Network Planning, John Kirby said,
“We are thrilled to expand our Puerto Rico service portfolio with new destinations and more nonstops to beautiful San Juan. Our new flights from Boston and Newark give our Guests more opportunities to escape to this incredible destination of discovery and leisure.”
In celebration of the inaugural flights from Boston and Newark to San Juan today, Spirit organized a celebration with SJU’s operator Aerostar Airport Holdings, LLC. Also commenting on the new service, Aerostar’s CEO, Jorge Hernández added,
“For Aerostar, it is a priority to be able to provide passengers with the greatest amount of frequency and flights. This way, we can expand the island’s possibilities while further developing visitor traffic. We thank Spirit for choosing Puerto Rico to inaugurate these two new routes. Newark and Boston are destinations with great demand among Puerto Ricans, so we trust that these new routes will be successful.”
Earlier this week, Spirit Airlines unveiled a new cabin redesign featuring ergonomic seats with around two inches of additional legroom, thicker padding, an extra inch of “pre-recline” and full size tray tables. The redesigned interior also has new carpet and signage along with a Spirit-branded color palette offering a modern new aesthetic. The new cabin will be rolled out in 40 existing aircraft in 2020 and will be included in nearly 50 new aircraft joining the airline’s fleet through 2021. Spirit Airlines operates over 600 daily flights to 75 destinations in the U.S., Latin America and the Caribbean.
