Spirit Airlines is not wasting any time in strengthening its presence at George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) in Houston.

Just two weeks after launching its inaugural flight to Dallas/Ft.Worth International Airport (DFW), the ultra low cost carrier expanded its schedule to include non-stop flights to Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) and McCarran International Airport (LAS) in Las Vegas.

“Houston is one of the fastest growing markets anywhere in the world,” says IAH general manager Carl Newman. “There is tremendous potential for growth here and the leadership team at Spirit is obviously anxious to tap into those possibilities.”

Spirit Airlines made its Houston debut on September 20, 2012, when its first plane rolled up to the jet bridge at Terminal A. After that, the Florida-based carrier began finalizing arrangements for its next two launches from IAH. Spirit flights to ORD and LAS began operating on October 4, 2012.

“We're thrilled to continue saving consumers money and satisfying their need for affordable low fares as we offer the best value in travel," says Spirit's chief marketing officer Barry Biffle . "Spirit's ultra low fares and optional add-ons provide customers a total price that's tough to beat."

Spirit Airlines empowers customers to save money on air travel by offering ultra low base fares with a range of optional services for a fee, allowing customers the freedom to choose only the extras they value. This innovative approach grows the traveling market and stimulates new economic activity while creating new jobs.

Spirit's modern fleet, configuration and other innovations enable Spirit to burn less fuel per seat than competitors, making Spirit one of the most environmentally-friendly U.S. carriers. Spirit's all-Airbus fleet currently operates more than 200 daily flights to over 50 destinations within the U.S., Latin America and Caribbean.
