Spirit Airlines Brings Ultra-Low Fares to Seattle-Tacoma, Giving Customers More Go for Summer Travel

MIRAMAR, Fla., March 24, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Space Needle, Puget Sound, the Pike Place Market, and now…Spirit Airlines! As the first new domestic carrier to join Seattle-Tacoma in eight years, Spirit Airlines is giving the people of the Emerald City more “green” in their pockets for air travel. Spirit Airlines is thrilled to add Seattle-Tacoma to its growing route network, with new service to two exciting destinations. Twice-daily nonstop service to Los Angeles starts today, followed by twice-daily service to Las Vegas beginning on April 14, 2016. Connections will be available to an additional 15 cities via Las Vegas and Los Angeles. So save your cash for the casinos of Vegas or a trip down Rodeo Drive, and buy your tickets now for a lot less money than on other airlines at spirit.com.

“Seattle-Tacoma is the perfect new city to expand our growing network,” said Mark Kopczak, Vice President of Network Planning for Spirit Airlines. “Spirit’s super low Bare Fares™, with Frill Control™ allows customers to choose only those extras they want to pay for and gives them the most control over their travel budget. By saving on travel, our customers have more money left over for when they get to their destination.”

From Los Angeles, Spirit flies nonstop to 18 cities, including Atlanta, Baltimore/Washington DC, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas/Fort Worth, Denver, Detroit, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Minneapolis-St. Paul, New Orleans (starting April 14, 2016), Oakland/San Francisco, Philadelphia (starting April 13, 2016), Phoenix (starting April 8, 2016), Portland (starting March 25, 2016) and Seattle-Tacoma.

From Las Vegas, Spirit flies nonstop to 19 cities, including Atlanta, Baltimore/Washington DC, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas/Fort Worth, Denver, Detroit, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Minneapolis-St. Paul, New Orleans, Oakland/San Francisco, Philadelphia, Portland (OR), San Diego, and Seattle-Tacoma (starting April 14, 2016).

“Spirit Airlines has a unique business model with their unbundled fare, providing customers in our region a new option of the ultra-low cost fare,” said Lance Lyttle, Managing Director of Sea-Tac Airport. “The opportunity to be a world-class airport also brings with it the need to broaden choices for our travelers. Spirit will do just that.”

In celebration of Spirit’s upcoming inaugural flight to Las Vegas on April 14, 2016, the airline will award two roundtrip tickets and three hotel nights to Sin City, as part of its Spirit-aneous Getaway. But, there’s a catch! Interested participants need to have their bags packed and ready to go, because they’ll be taking off 2 hours after their name is announced. To win, contestants can enter the sweepstakes at www.spiritgetaway.com/seattle beginning Monday, March 28, 2016 and print their entry form. Raffle tickets for the grand prize will be handed out at the Sea-Tac Arrivals Hall between 11am and 1pm PST on April 14. The drawing will immediately follow and the winners will take off on Spirit’s inaugural flight for a fun-filled getaway in Las Vegas.
