Spirit Airlines to Add Routes and Ultra-Low Fares from Detroit to Atlanta and New Orleans

MIRAMAR, FL (July 30, 2014) - Whether it's Peachtree Street in Atlanta or on New Orleans' famed Bourbon Street, the South has a charm all of its own. Beginning in November, Spirit Airlines (NADAQ: SAVE) will begin non-stop service from Detroit to Atlanta and New Orleans so people from the Detroit area can enjoy ultra-low fares and some southern hospitality.

"Detroit is making a great comeback," said Mark Kopczak, Vice President of Network Planning for Spirit Airlines. "We're thrilled to bring more flights to more cities from Detroit, now including Atlanta and New Orleans, where our low Bare Fares&#8482 provide more affordable air travel options to our loyal Detroit-area customers."

Spirit's new service from Detroit to Atlanta will begin on November 2, 2014. The service from Detroit to New Orleans will begin on November 6, 2014. With the addition of these new routes, Spirit operates service nonstop to 17 cities including Atlanta (starting 11/02/14), Atlantic City, Cancun, Dallas/Fort Worth, Denver, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Houston, Kansas City (starting 08/07/14) Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Myrtle Beach, New Orleans (starting 11/06/14), New York, Orlando, and Tampa.
