Spirit Airlines Launches First-Ever Miami Service
The low-cost carrier will begin serving 31 cities from MIA by January
Miami is now one of 82 destinations Spirit Airlines serves after the carrier began flying out of Miami International Airport (MIA) on Oct. 6. Miami-Dade County and Spirit Airlines officials recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the launch of the first-ever Miami service by Spirit.
The Miramar-based carrier flies to 15 countries, including the U.S., Latin America, and the Caribbean. Currently, Spirit will serve nine destinations from MIA, followed by 22 more destinations being added in November and January, for a total of 20 domestic and 11 international spots. The full schedule will make it one of MIA’s busiest passenger carriers. The airline hired more than 200 new employees to accommodate the launch and acquired 16 new fuel-efficient Airbus A320neo planes being delivered this year.
