Spirit Airlines to Resume Service Between Fort Lauderdale and Cap-Haitien From December 3, 2020
Spirit will be the only carrier in the region offering nonstop service between Fort Lauderdale and Cap Haitien on Haiti’s north coast when they restart service on December 3, 2020. The carrier will offer three flights weekly on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
On Thursday (October 1, 2020), Spirit Airlines announced the restart of service between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and Cap-Haitien International Airport (CAP) on Haiti’s north coast from December 3, 2020. The airline will be the only carrier in the region offering nonstop service to Cap-Haitien and will offer three flights weekly on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Spirit Guests arriving in FLL from Haiti will enjoy seamless onward connections to 22 U.S. gateways. In Thursday’s announcement, Spirit Airlines’ General Manager in Cap-Haitien and Port-au-Prince, Doris Graham, said,
“We love giving our Guests more options, and we think flying people from Cap-Haitien nonstop to the U.S. instead of backtracking through Port-au-Prince is a pretty great gift to give as the holiday season approaches. This route shows our commitment to Guests in Cap-Haitien, as well as to the Haitian American population in South Florida. Spirit touched down in Haiti with its first flight to Port-au-Prince in 2007 and expanded its operations with nonstop service to Cap-Haitien in 2018. In total, the airline has flown more than one million Guests between the U.S. and Haiti.”
Spirit Airlines is dedicated to taking care of their guests and team members and has implemented a multi-layered approach which includes requiring all guests and team members to wear facemasks. Every aircraft in the fleet also uses state-of-the-art HEPA which filter 99.7 percent of airborne particulates, including viruses, every two to three minutes. The carrier has also introduced enhanced aircraft cleaning procedures between every flight using hospital-grade disinfectants on high-touch areas such as tray tables and armrests. Additionally, Spirit uses two EPA-registered flogging treatments, with the first applying a high-grade disinfectant effective against COVID-19 and the second forming an invisible antimicrobial barrier.
Miramar, Florida-based low-cost carrier Spirit Airlines typically operates over 650 daily flights to 77 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 of aircraft their “Fit Fleet®.”
