Spirit Airlines Adds New Destinations to New Orleans Market

Connections to Central America Possible

 

(NEW ORLEANS, LA) - The Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport is pleased to announce that low-cost carrier Spirit Airlines will add two (2) new destinations from New Orleans.  On August 1, 2014, Spirit Airlines will begin a daily non-stop flight from New Orleans to Houston (IAH) and Ft. Lauderdale (FLL) with their all-Airbus fleet. The flight to Ft. Lauderdale is timed to allow for their many connections to Central America from that city. The new daily flight to Houston will depart New Orleans at 10:12 a.m. The daily flight to Ft. Lauderdale will depart New Orleans at 7:58 p.m.

 

Spirit Airlines was founded in 1980 (as Charter One) and is headquartered in Miramar, FL. They operate scheduled flights throughout the Americas as well as the Caribbean and Mexico and promotes a marketing theme of ultra-low fares with a range of optional services for a fee. Their website is http://www.spirit.com/.

 

New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu said, "We are extremely happy that Spirit Airlines is expanding their daily service from New Orleans. The confidence our airline partners have in New Orleans as a viable destination is welcoming."

 

"The New Orleans Aviation Board (NOAB) salutes Spirit Airlines for adding this new service," said NOAB Chairwoman Cheryl Teamer. "The NOAB is committed to expanding the choice of destinations for our passengers. The addition of the Ft. Lauderdale destination opens another door for travel to Central America."

 

"We are very excited about the newly expanded routes by Spirit at Armstrong International," said Iftikhar Ahmad, Director of Aviation. "The daily flights to Houston and Ft. Lauderdale will give our passengers another option for travel to these fine cities. More importantly, the timing of the departure schedule from New Orleans to Ft. Lauderdale will open up opportunities for travel to Central America on their connecting flights from Florida."
