Spirit Airlines grows its domestic presence at Cleveland
Spirit Airlines expanded its presence at Cleveland (CLE) with the addition of three new routes on 5 February, all of which are served daily using the airline’s 145-seat A319s. Firstly, the LCC introduced operations on the 1,643-kilometre airport pair to Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW), a route already flown by American Airlines (thrice-daily) and United Airlines (11 times weekly) and Frontier Airlines (weekly). Secondly, the LCC started flights to Fort Lauderdale (FLL) and Las Vegas (LAS), both of which are already served by United (12 times weekly) and Frontier (daily). This brings to six the number of destinations now served by Spirit from Cleveland, having launched its first flights from the airport to Orlando, Southwest Florida and Tampa in mid-January.
