Happy 13th Birthday to Spirit

When it comes to birthdays, Spirit Airlines, the largest privately-held carrier in the U.S. and the low-fare leader, really knows how to celebrate.
“We will never be able to say thank you enough for the dedication of our employees and the support of our customers over the past 12 years,” said Jacob Schorr, CEO and president of Spirit.
“It is a testament to our employees and customers that we have not only survived the last 12 years but thrived even during the trying times for our industry. Last week, we celebrated an operational Grand Slam for June in which we outperformed the 12 largest airlines in terms of on-time performance, consumer complaint ranking, mishandled baggage and flight cancellations.(a)”
“In honor of our 13th birthday, we`re giving birthday cards to every employee and giving one to each passenger who flies with us on September 6th,” Schorr said. “And anyone who flies with us on September 6th will receive a 25% future flight credit for travel through November 19, 2003 in honor of our big day!” continued Schorr.
“This Fall is the perfect time for old customers to come back and new customers to give us a try. We have great low fares available right now and I encourage people to celebrate with us all month long, as we will continue to have terrific fares available to great destinations. Our website offers customers great options to pick up low fares as well as package options for that last minute trip or a vacation.”
