Low-cost carrier Spirit Airlines has announced that it will begin flying out of Pittsburgh International Airport in May 2017.
Pittsburgh International Airport will become the 61st city to join its expanding network, with new non-stop service to seven popular destinations, including
Dallas/Fort Worth, Myrtle Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Las Vegas, Houston and Los Angeles
“Pittsburgh is an excellent place to expand our growing network,” said Mark Kopczak, vice president of network planning for Spirit Airlines.
“This new service complements Spirit’s existing service from Latrobe, and will help us provide even more ultra-low fare options from western Pennsylvania.”
Daily flights to Dallas/Fort Worth and Myrtle Beach will commence on May 25th, 2017, while Spirit will fly three times weekly to Fort Lauderdale beginning on June 15th.
“We are thrilled that Spirit has joined the growing list of airlines at Pittsburgh International Airport offering nonstop service,” Allegheny County executive Rich Fitzgerald said.
“We’re proud that the airport has seen an 80 percent increase in non-stop destinations in the past two years.
“Its growth matches the renaissance of our region and we’re delighted to have Spirit join us in those gains.”
