San Antonio (November 17, 2022) – San Antonio International Airport (SAT) celebrated the arrival of Spirit Airlines’ inaugural flight from Orlando International Airport (MCO) today. The ultra-low-cost airline has announced that it will launch direct service to Orlando, Florida, and Las Vegas, Nevada, starting in July – giving travelers another affordable option to visit two of the country’s most popular holiday destinations. During the ceremony, Spirit Airlines and SAT announced that the airline would begin direct service in two additional markets. New non-stop daily service to Baltimore/Washington (BWI) and Ft. Lauderdale (FLL) will begin on March 8, 2023.

“We are thrilled to provide our travelers with more family-friendly travel options. In July, Spirit said that if the community responded to the new direct flights to Las Vegas and Orlando, it could add new markets by the time those flights began, said Jesus H. Saenz, director of airports at the San Antonio Airport System. “Well, we did it! Due to the successful booking of new non-stop connections, Spirit decides to invest even more in Alamo City!”

“It’s exciting to kick off our new service with plans to expand and give San Antonio travelers even more low-cost options to explore popular holiday destinations,” said Lania Rittenhouse, vice president, Spirit Charitable Foundation.
