Spirit Airlines is flying back to the Metroplex.
The low-cost carrier announced on Thursday that it will offer twice daily flights from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport to Fort Lauderdale, Fla. and to Las Vegas starting on May 5.
“We welcome the addition of new competition into the DFW market, and Spirit brings great service, competitive prices and tremendous value to our passengers," said D/FW airport chief executive Jeff Fegan.
This is not the first time Spirit has served D/FW. The carrier had service between D/FW and Fort Lauderdale in 2006 but pulled out after about a year.
