George Bush Intercontinental Airport Gains Service Between Houston and Orlando on Spirit Airlines

HOUSTON, February 14, 2013 – The Houston Airport System announces Spirit Airlines is spreading its love of ultra low fares this Valentine’s Day as it starts daily nonstop service between Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and Orlando International Airport.

“Houston leads the nation in the economic recovery and the Houston Airport System is delighted to add new nonstop flights to Orlando,” said Mario C. Diaz, Director of the Houston Airport System. “Bush Intercontinental welcomes the expansion by Spirit Airlines as we celebrate this increased capacity between Texas and Florida.”

“Spirit gives many consumers the opportunity to fly who otherwise couldn’t afford to do so – or they’re able to do so more often – by offering everyone the opportunity to take advantage of our ultra low fares and option to save by choosing only the add-ons they want,” said Spirit’s Chief Marketing Officer Barry Biffle. “What’s not to love about getting where you want to go for less?”

Spirit introduced its ultra low fare service to Houstonians in September with twice daily nonstop service to Dallas/Fort Worth, and started daily nonstop service from Houston to both Chicago O’Hare and Las Vegas in October.
