Even More Go in Indy! Spirit Airlines Celebrates Inaugural Service in Indianapolis with Additional Route Announcement

MIRAMAR, Fla., March 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hey Indy, how about some more nonstops?  Spirit Airlines is celebrating the launch of its inaugural service from Indianapolis International Airport (IND) with the announcement of two additional nonstop routes set to rollout this winter.  Beginning November 14, 2019, Spirit will add nonstop routes from Indy to Tampa, Florida and Fort Myers, Florida.  The new routes are announced the same day the airline begins nonstop daily service from Indianapolis to Orlando, Florida and Las Vegas, Nevada. On May 2, Spirit will add nonstop seasonal flights between Indianapolis and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina three times weekly.  The new routes will create dozens of connections throughout Spirit’s domestic and international network.

“Spirit Airlines is excited to celebrate the launch of our Indianapolis service with the promise of even more nonstop flights on the way,” said John Kirby, Spirit Airlines’ Vice President of Network Planning.  “These two additional routes reinforce our growing investment from the Crossroads of America.  We believe Circle City guests looking to get away will embrace our low fares and the best value in the sky.”

“Adding additional flights -- at this time -- sends a clear message about the value Spirit Airlines sees in Indianapolis,” said Mario Rodriguez, Executive Director of the Indianapolis Airport Authority. “Spirit is giving Indy travelers more nonstop flights to the places they love most, and connectivity to international destinations in Latin America and the Caribbean. That’s a statement we’re taking full note of as we welcome Spirit Airlines to the city.”

“Within the past week, we’ve not only had the opportunity to celebrate our airport being named the #1 airport in North America for the seventh year in a row, but we’re also excited to welcome Spirit Airlines to Indy, celebrate their inaugural flight and their announcement of two additional flights,” said Leonard Hoops, President and CEO of Visit Indy. “A new carrier and quality air service provider at IND like Spirit provides more airlift into the city and more visitors to Indianapolis. One of the benefits of IND continuing to increase its record number of nonstop flights is that we’ve also seen a record for inbound visitors coming to the city for either business or leisure.”
