MIAMI – Spirit Airlines announced today their new services from Connecticut and Western Massachusetts, with nonstop flights from Hartford’s Bradley International Airport (BDL) to the Myrtle Beach International Airport (MYR), Orlando International Airport (MCO) and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL).
“We are thrilled to deliver this nonstop service to two of the country’s most popular summer destinations,” said Mark Kopczak, Vice President of Network Planning for Spirit Airlines. “These news flights, with new service to Fort Lauderdale starting in June, give Hartford even more ultra-low cost options for summer travel.”
The new nonstop services to Myrtle Beach and Orlando start this week and the Fort Lauderdale service is set to begin on June 15, 2017. All of them as a seasonal route.
“Spirit Airlines is a strong addition to Bradley’s growing menu of direct flights,” CAA Board Chairman Charles R. Gray said. “A continued mission of the Connecticut Airport Authority is for Bradley’s travelers to love the journey through the airport and beyond. One way of doing that is by continuing to diversify Bradley’s flight options, which is why we’re very pleased to be welcoming Spirit to the Bradley family.”
“The key to successful route development is a loyal customer base,” CAA Executive Director Kevin A. Dillon, A.A.E., said. “The Myrtle Beach service has been frequently requested by our travelers and the additional frequencies between Bradley, Orlando, and Fort Lauderdale will provide travelers with more options. It is our hope that these additions to our route structure will continue to encourage our travelers to come home to Bradley and choose our local airport over other airports.”
