Spirit Airlines has added nonstop service to six additional destinations since arriving to IAH in September 2012.
Spirit Airlines is set to have a busy spring season, launching new nonstop flights from Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) to Los Angeles, California, Denver, Colorado and Detroit, Michigan.

The service to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) will kick off the expansion period for Spirit Airlines, with service beginning on April 25, 2013.

"Houston leads the nation in economic recovery and the Houston Airport System is delighted to add new nonstop flights to Los Angeles," 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 California."

The flight from Houston will depart IAH at 9:05 p.m., arriving in Los Angeles at 10:50 p.m. (PST). Less than an hour later, the aircraft will depart on its return trip to Houston, arriving at 4:50 a.m. local time.

The nonstop flight to Los Angeles marks the sixth time leaders with Spirit Airlines have stepped forward with new service for Houston passengers since arriving in the market in September 2012.

At that time, Spirit’s only offering at IAH was a nonstop flight to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), but since that time, they’ve launched service to Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport (ORD), McCarran International Airport (LAS) in Las Vegas and Orlando International Airport (MCO), while they’ve also announced plans to begin flights to LAX, Denver International Airport (DEN) and Detroit Metro Airport (DET).

The new nonstops to Denver and Detroit will begin operating at IAH on June 13, 2013.

"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 chief marketing officer Barry Biffle.

Spirit Airlines offers passengers ultra low base fares with a range of optional services for a fee, allowing customers the freedom to choose only the extras they value. Leaders with Spirit Airlines say this innovative approach grows the traveling market and stimulates new economic activity while creating new jobs.
