This spring Spirit Airlines will expand its low-fare options with 11 new routes to some of the most popular vacation destinations.

Beginning in March and April of 2018, Spirit will launch new year-round service from Baltimore/Washington, Tampa and Orlando to some top travel hot spots. Spirit will also begin seasonal service to Seattle from four new cities and connect Detroit to San Diego and Portland, Oregon.

While the routes and destinations vary widely, this new service delivers on Spirit’s promise to bring more service to cities in need of low fares.

This month, Spirit also announced it will begin serving Columbus, Ohio and Richmond, Virginia early next year. These two new cities will bring Spirit’s growing network to 62 total destinations, with even more expected in the year ahead.

“We are excited to celebrate our growth in these key markets and offer even more ultra-low fares to some of our guests’ favorite destinations,” said Mark Kopczak, Spirit Airlines’ Vice President of Network Planning. “Whether it’s connecting Tampa to the west coast, bringing new routes to Seattle/Tacoma, or adding another international destination from Baltimore /Washington, we know these new, nonstop flights will bring more friends together and allow more families to go on vacation.”
