Spirit Airlines launches four new nonstop routes at Milwaukee Mitchell

Spirit Airlines has launched new daily nonstop routes between Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport (MKE) and Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, Fort Myers, and Phoenix. The airport held an inaugural launch celebration at the gate, with passengers treated to cookies, first flight certificates, and fun MKE swag.

One of the most fun aspects of the launch celebration was the use of MKE’s “unofficial mascot” named Violet the Pilot. Someone left a purple stuffed monkey behind in 2020 and the airport has been been trying to find the owner ever since. She recently won an ACI Award for her role in ‘Best Customer Experience’ Program and went viral on TikTok last week with over 100,000 views on her introduction video.

“It’s great to see so many passengers taking advantage of Spirit’s low fares and new destinations today,” said Airport Director Brian Dranzik. “Our travellers are excited to beat the winter blues, and we’re so thrilled to see them here today.”

Spirit began service from Milwaukee in June with flights to Orlando, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas. This now brings the total up to seven cities served nonstop from Milwaukee on Spirit.

“We’re thrilled by the strong response our low fare and high value service has received in the Badger State,” said John Kirby, Vice President of Network Planning, Spirit Airlines. “We’re excited to continue growing Spirit’s presence at MKE with new, convenient nonstop options to get away to great leisure destinations or visit friends and family.”

Additionally, Spirit Airlines will launch three weekly nonstop flights from Milwaukee to Cancun this December. This will be the airline’s first international route from Milwaukee.
