Spirit Airlines has announced that it will operate first flights in Salt Lake City (SCL) with three new routes to Las Vegas (LAS), Los Angeles (LAX) and Orlando (MCO), also landing in the state of Utah.
“We listened to our passengers and they told us they wanted more exciting destinations to experience the great outdoors. This spring is a great time to launch service to Salt Lake City, The Crossroads of The West,” said John Kirby, Spirit Airlines vice president of Network Planning.
“We are also excited to introduce our high-quality travel offerings to our new Utah customers seeking convenient non-stop flights to some of the country’s most popular leisure destinations.”
Spirit will be the first domestic airline to announce operations there following the 2020 unveiling of The New SLC, a $4.5 billion redevelopment project focused on providing a better customer experience. The airline’s presence on SLC increases competition and benefits local families seeking more affordable vacation options.
