Celebrating the launch of services to Atlanta from Tampa are: Chris Minner, VP of Marketing, Tampa Airport; N. Paul Berry, Director of Public Relations, Advertising and Brand, Spirit Airlines; Edward Garduno, Spirit Airlines GM; and Kari Goetz, Director of Marketing, Tampa Airport. Passengers in the terminal had a go at playing a prize wheel game, with a chance to win a selection of goodies before boarding. Flights between the two airports will operate daily using the carrier’s A319s.
- Spirit Airlines launched three routes from Atlanta (ATL) on 18 June to Baltimore/Washington (BWI), Philadelphia (PHL) and Tampa (TPA). All services will operate daily using the airline’s A319s, and all face strong direct competition, most notably from Delta Air Lines, which serves all three city pairs with multiple-daily frequencies. The new services mean that Spirit Airlines now operates to 12 destinations from Atlanta, with further routes to Boston, Los Angeles and Fort Myers being launched later this year.
