Spirit Airlines adds another six destinations to DFW

Spirit Airlines announced on Monday that it is going to add service to an additional six cities out of Dallas/Fort Worth Airport, bringing the total number of destinations to 26.

The low-fare carrier said it will add flights to Fort Myers, Fla., Minneapolis-St. Paul, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh's Latrobe airport and Los Cabos, Mexico. The Los Cabos flight will need government approval.

Earlier this month, Spirit had announced it would add five cities to DFW. The carrier has been flying out of DFW for a little over a year.

"Now travelers from throughout the Metroplex have easy access to Spirit's ultra low fares to 26 nonstop destinations from DFW," said Spirit chief marketing officer Barry Biffle.

Spirit is the second largest carrier at DFW Airport in terms of destinations served, but not in terms of total capacity since the airline often only operates one or two flights a day to a city.

The new seasonal service to Fort Myers will be three times a week, operating between Nov. 8 and April 24. Service to New Orleans will begin with a daily flight on January 24 and a second daily flight added on June 13.

Starting on April 26, Spirit will offer flights four times a week to Minneapolis-St. Paul and Philadelphia, increasing to daily service on June 13. Flights three times a week between DFW and Pittsburgh will begin on June 14.
