Fort Lauderdale's growth includes additional flights to Guatemala City (GUA), San Salvador (SAL) and St. Croix (STX), which will cement Spirit's lead as the airport's largest carrier to the Caribbean and Latin America. The airline surpassed JetBlue in terms of available seats to the region in January 2020, with nonstop service to 28 destinations.

"Florida is very important to Spirit Airlines, and we are going to keep growing in the state we call home," said John Kirby, Vice President of Network Planning for Spirit. "As the only major airline headquartered in the Sunshine State, Spirit Airlines continues to add new destinations and more non-stop service to meet the needs of Florida's growing economy."

Spirit is turning heads by making it possible for Guests to venture further than ever while delivering the best value in the sky. The airline recently won Low Cost Airline of the Year at the CAPA (Centre for Aviation) World Aviation Summit and unveiled a complete cabin redesign featuring ergonomically-designed seats, an improved aesthetic and a modern look and feel.
