“We look forward to giving even more customers the opportunity to save money on travel with our ultra low fares and optional add-ons that provide customers with a total price that’s tough to beat,” said Spirit’s Senior Director of Network Planning Mark Kopczak.
“Spirit Airlines continues to find new business opportunities within Houston's thriving economy,” said Houston Aviation Director Mario C. Diaz. “Since arriving last September, Spirit Airlines has repeatedly stepped forward with new investments in new nonstop routes and it's the air passengers in Houston who are reaping the benefits.”
“We are extremely happy to see Spirit launch new nonstop flights between Detroit and Houston as it was our third largest market without low cost carrier (LCC) service,” said Wayne County Airport Authority CEO Thomas Naughton. “With this new flight, 14 of our top 16 markets will now have LCC competition – and Spirit is the reason for the majority of them.”
“We are very excited that Spirit Airlines is continuing to grow its service at Denver International Airport with its newest direct flights to Houston,” said Kim Day, Manager of Aviation. "This service will increase the number of options available to travelers and enhance Denver International Airport’s position as one of the strongest for domestic air service."
