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.
“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.
