LONDON – Ultra-low-cost-carrier Spirit Airlines will be flying two new routes from its home state of Florida.

Starting from December 20 this year, the carrier will be launching services to Chicago O’Hare (ORD) and Detroit (DTW) on a daily basis from Jacksonville (JAX).

Jacksonville will become the airline’s 69th destination in its network and will join the other Floridian operations of Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Tampa, and West Palm Beach.

Commenting on this route expansion is Laurie Villa, Spirit’s Senior VP and Chief Human Resources Officer.

“We are so proud to be expanding service once again right here in the Sunshine State to my hometown of Jacksonville.”

Villa said that as Spirit continues to expand, “we want to make sure we continue to serve our neighbors with ultra-low fares right here in our home state.”

This expansion from Jacksonville follows a previous announcement launching up to a dozen brand new routes from Orlando to Latin America and the Caribbean.

For Spirit, it seems that the expansion is in freeflow and shows no signs of stopping as we approach the winter 2018/19 season.
