Spirit Airlines celebrates one year in Austin with new flights and international expansion. Austinites can afford More Go than ever before.
Spirit Airlines launched its first international service from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, the airline announced Wednesday, with more destinations and more signature low fares on the way.
The brightest planes in the sky are bound for the bright skies of Cancun, Mexico. Guests on Spirit’s first flight to Cancun International Airport (CUN) departed Wednesday morning with smiles and some yellow swag from the airline’s anniversary party. Next month, Spirit will add daily service to Nashville, Tenn. (BNA) and Newark, N.J. (EWR) on top of the four-times weekly service to CUN.

“By adding more nonstop destinations with our famous low fares, we create more opportunity for our Guests to travel and save,” said John Kirby, Vice President of Network Planning for Spirit. “We’re excited to offer even More Go in Austin. Savvy travelers can use the money Spirit helps them save to enjoy more of Cancun’s great beaches, experience another great music city like Nashville, or catch a new show in the Big Apple.”
Strong demand for low fares is catapulting Austin into Spirit’s top 20 cities in terms of nonstop destinations. Just one year after starting service, the airline will offer up to 14 daily departures to 13 cities.
“This month marks Spirit’s one-year anniversary in Austin, and what better way to celebrate their success than with the launch of an exciting new year-round service to Cancun,” said Jacqueline Yaft, Executive Director of Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.
Spirit is turning heads by making it possible for Guests to venture further than ever while delivering the best value in the sky. Spirit recently won Low Cost Airline of the Year at the CAPA (Centre for Aviation) World Aviation Summit and unveiled a complete cabin redesign featuring ergonomically-designed seats, an improved aesthetic and a modern look and feel.
