San Antonio (Nov. 17, 2022) – San Antonio International Airport (SAT) celebrated the arrival of the inaugural Spirit Airlines flight from Orlando International Airport (MCO) today. The ultra-low-cost-airline announced it would launch nonstop service to both Orlando, FL and Las Vegas, NV back in July – giving travelers another affordable option to visit two of the most popular leisure destinations in the country. During the festivities, Spirit Airlines and SAT announced the airline would begin nonstop service to two additional markets. New, daily nonstop service to both Baltimore/Washington (BWI) and Ft. Lauderdale (FLL) will begin on March 8, 2023.
 
“We are overjoyed to give our travelers more options for family-friendly travel. In July, Spirit said if the community responded to their new nonstops to Las Vegas and Orlando they could add new markets by the time these flights started,” said Jesus H. Saenz, Director of Airports, San Antonio Airport System. “Well, we did it! Due to successful bookings on their new nonstops, Spirit is deciding to invest even more in the Alamo City!”
 
“It’s exciting to kick off our new service with plans to grow and give San Antonio travelers even more low-fare options to explore popular vacation destinations,” said Lania Rittenhouse, Vice President of Guest Experience, Brand & Communications for Spirit Airlines and President of the Spirit Charitable Foundation.
