Today, Spirit Airlines announced an expansion of their offering to Colombia with new service from Fort Lauderdale, Florida (FLL) to both Barranquila and Bucaramanga in Colombia. Service to both cities will be offered three times weekly with Bucaramanga departures on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays starting April 22, 2020 and Barranquilla service on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays from April 23, 2020. With today’s announcement, Spirit Airlines will now operate 10 non-stop routes to seven Colombian cities from two US gateways (Fort Lauderdale and Orlando) more than any other US carrier. In Tuesday’s announcement, Spirit Airlines’ President and CEO, Ted Christie said,

“We are very proud of our service growth in Colombia, connecting many Colombian cities to multiple U.S. gateways over the last 10-plus years. Colombia is considered home to many in Florida and it is also a destination that has gained so much interest in the past years from the leisure traveler. We are very excited to add Bucaramanga and Barranquilla to our Spirit Family and continue with our mission to offer the best value in the sky to those looking to visit family and friends and those looking for their next adventure.”

Miramar, Florida-based low-cost carrier Spirit Airlines operates over 650 daily flights to destinations in the US, Latin America and the Caribbean. The airline allows customers to select and pay for only the products and services they want, something they call “À La Smarte.” Spirit also operates one of the youngest and most fuel-efficient fleets in the US and recently firmed up an order for 100 new Airbus A320neo Family aircraft. The carrier proudly calls their youthful fleet their “Fit Fleet®.”
