LONDON – US ultra-low-cost carrier Spirit Airlines has bolstered San Antonio travel options as it launched its daily, nonstop service from San Antonio International Airport (SAT) to popular leisure destinations, including Las Vegas (LAS) and Orlando (MCO).
The airline will also make further service additions in the new year with the commencement of two new routes to Baltimore/Washington D.C. (BWI) and Fort Lauderdale (FLL) starting March 2023.
Serving San Antonio
“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.
“We can’t wait to welcome guests from San Antonio onboard one of the youngest fleets in the industry and give back to the community through the Spirit Charitable Foundation.”
“Spirit Airlines makes it easy for families to explore San Antonio. We’re thrilled to have Orlando and Las Vegas as affordable travel options in and out of the top tourist destination in Texas,” said Jesus H. Saenz, Director of Airports, San Antonio Airport System.
“There’s so much to see and do here in San Antonio. We’re happy to give our travelers more flights to popular places and add new routes as we expand.”
Supporting Soldiers’ Angels
The Spirit Charitable Foundation commemorated its new service in San Antonio, also known as “Military City USA,” with a $20,000 donation to Soldiers’ Angels, supporting the distribution of aid, comfort, and resources to the military, veterans, and families living in San Antonio.
The non-profit’s global network of volunteers works to ensure that those who serve or have served are supported, uplifted, and remembered through a variety of support programs for deployed and wounded service members, veterans, and their families.
“We are so grateful for the incredible support we have received from The Spirit Charitable Foundation.”
“We know how important supporting veterans and active military is to the foundation and we are thrilled to establish this ongoing partnership which will facilitate their desire to give back to those who have served,” said Amy Palmer, Soldiers’ Angels President and CEO.
