Spirit Airlines has unveiled their growth plans at Orlando International Airport with the resumption of all remaining international service and expanded domestic options. The carrier will offer over 80 daily departures from MCO by the end of 2021.
On Thursday (July 8, 2021), Spirit Airlines announced an expansion at Orlando International Airport (MCO) with the resumption of all remaining international flights and more domestic options. By the end of 2021, the carrier will offer over 80 daily departures from MCO stretching from New Hampshire to the Dominican Republic. Spirit will restore flights to Cartagena, Colombia (CTG), Guatemala City (GUA), Montego Bay, Jamaica (MBJ), Port-au-Prince, Haiti (PAP) and San Salvador, El Salvador. The airline will also increase service to San Jose, Costa Rica (SJO) with daily flights. Spirit has also reactivated their entire domestic schedule from MCO, with new options including Louisville (SDF), Manchester, New Hampshire (MHT), Miami (MIA), Milwaukee (MKE) and St, Louis (STL).
In Thursday’s announcement, Spirit Airlines’ Vice President of Network Planning, John Kirby, said,
“Florida's Hometown Airline continues to invest at Orlando International Airport by offering daily flights to new domestic and international destinations. With over 80 flights each day to more than 50 cities, Spirit Airlines provides our Central Florida Guests even more nonstop options including 16 popular vacation destinations throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.”
In total, Spirit guests traveling from Orlando will have around 20 additional flights and 10 new destinations to choose from compared to 2019, an increase in Orlando Operations of 45 percent. With the expansion, Spirit becomes Orlando’s largest international carrier, and second largest airline overall. Last month, Spirit opened their second Operations Control Center (OCC), bringing an additional 75 positions to Orlando, and the carrier has also refreshed their MCO ticket lobby.
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.
