Spirit Airlines launches new routes from Dallas/Fort Worth and to Denver

  • Spirit Airlines, the US ultra-low cost airline, clearly does not shy competition as it launched six new routes in the last week, of which only one – to Myrtle Beach, SC (MYR) – does not face considerable frequencies on competing airlines. Four of the routes are to Denver, CO (DEN) and three are from Dallas/Fort Worth, TX (DFW); homes of United, Frontier and American Airlines. The route between those two airports initially operates daily, but increases to twice-daily from 17 May.
