Spirit Airlines is an ultra low-cost airline operating from Miramar, Florida which is located near Miami. It services destinations across the USA, in the Caribbean, and all over Latin America. From Florida passengers can fly to Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, Lima (Peru), Cancun (Mexico) and even Costa Rica.
Spirit Airlines was first established in 1980 in Michigan as Charter One’d. It was a low cost tour operator serving mostly entertainment destinations like Atlantic City and Las Vegas. In 1992 the tour operator changed its name to Spirit Airlines and changed the fleet to an all-jet fleet. This same year Spirit Airlines added service from Detroit to Atlantic City. In the early 1990s Spirit Airlines began servicing more and more destinations around the country, including New York City, Myrtle Beach and Los Angeles.
In 2001 Spirit Airlines began servicing Spanish-speaking destinations like Puerto Rico which also meant the addition of a fully Spanish-language customer service plan. The airline added also flights to Cancun, Mexico, Santo Domingo and the Caribbean to its network of flights. In 2007 Spirit Airlines changed their services to low-cost, beginning to charge passengers for check baggage and a charged in-flight menu. Business class was phased out also at this time. In 2007 Spirit Airlines was the largest carrier of passengers to Fort Lauderdale’s airport.
