The airline will be adding nine new international routes out of Orlando International Airport beginning this fall, TravelMole reported.
As Spirit Airlines announced, it will soon fly to and from South America, now stopping in Bogota, Medellin, and Cartagena in Colombia, as well as Central America, in Guatemala, Panama, Honduras, and El Salvador.
“We’re very excited about the places we’re going to serve from Orlando, internationally,” Spirit Airlines President Ted Christie told USA Today. “They’re all places that we serve today from Fort Lauderdale. We think those markets are very unique to our product and that we serve those customers very well.”
Spirit is also adding routes to Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. This, USA Today explained, will put Orlando neck-and-neck with Las Vegas as Spirit’s busiest hub.
Once these new international routes launch the airline will be able to offer travelers 38 different destinations with 49 daily departures from the Orlando airport alone.
