On Thursday (June 24, 2021), Spirit Airlines celebrated the first arrivals of their bright yellow planes at Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport (MKE) by announcing they will nearly triple the number of destinations offered. In addition to previously announced service to Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Orlando, Spirit will add service between Milwaukee and Cancun with three weekly flights and daily service to Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Phoenix and Tampa. During today’s inaugural celebration at General Mitchell Airport, Spirit also presented a donation to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Wisconsin.

At Thursday’s celebration, Spirit Airlines’ Vice President of Network Planning, John Kirby, said,

“We see a vibrant future full of new opportunities for travel here in the Badger State. We're excited to nearly triple our convenient, nonstop flights to exciting destinations. We can't wait to take more Milwaukee Guests to 'sun and sand' destinations and bring travelers from all over to enjoy Wisconsin's great festivals, sports scene and fun outdoor activities.”

Also commenting on Spirit’s inaugural service and expansion, Milwaukee County Airport Director, Brian Dranzik, added,

“It's just a great feeling being here today to welcome new air service to Milwaukee. When you think about where we were a year ago, it's hard to imagine that we would be introducing a new airline here at MKE, let alone one that's expanding so quickly. Spirit Airlines is now up to eight nonstop destinations from MKE, which provides Milwaukee travelers even more connections to where they want to go.”

Miramar, Florida-based low-cost carrier Spirit Airlines (NYSE: SAVE) is committed to offering the best value in the sky with service to destinations in the U.S., 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 U.S. The carrier proudly calls their youthful fleet of aircraft their “Fit Fleet®.” Spirit Airlines will add 16 new fuel-efficient Airbus A320neos to their fleet in 2021 and an additional 21 aircraft in 2022.
