LONDON – On March 17, the United States-based carrier Spirit Airlines has announced that it will be commencing three new routes out of its hub in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The new destinations from the recently renamed Las Vegas, Harry Reid International Airport (LAS) are Albuquerque International Sunport (ABQ) in New Mexico, Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO) in Nevada, and Boise Airport (BOI) in Idaho.
Las Vegas’ main airport was recently renamed to Harry Reid International Airport from McCarran International Airport back in December 2021 in honor of the U.S. Senator, Harry Reid who represented the state of Nevada from 1987 to 2017, a 30-year long position.
The previous McCarran International Airport name come from another U.S. Senator, Pat McCarran who represented Nevada from 1933 to 1954, a 21-year long position.
All the three new routes will begin services during the summer season of early August 2022 and will be operated by a mixture of Spirit’s entire Airbus fleet, the Airbus A319, Airbus A320, Airbus A320neo, and Airbus A321.
Albuquerque will start from August 3 as a daily service, Reno will start from August 10 as a twice-daily service and Boise will start from August 5 also as a daily service.
These three new routes from Las Vegas come shortly after the also recently announced two new routes from Las Vegas to Memphis International Airport (MEM) in Tennessee and Salt Lake City International Airport (SLA) in Utah.
Of which, Memphis begins from April 20 as a daily service, and Salt Lake City will begin from May 26 as a twice-daily service.
