Spirit announces new routes including MSP/Denver

See also

And you thought having a choice between Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, Southwest Airlines and Frontier Airlines on the Twin Cities to Denver route was enough? Obviously, the folks at ultra-discount carrier Spirit Airlines see if differently with the announcement of seasonal daily non-stop services beginning April 25 of this year. The new flights between the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport and Denver International Airport is sure to drive prices lower and stimulate new business, which is what Spirit has been known to do.

Spirit first began serving the Twin Cities with flights from Terminal 2/Humphrey to Las Vegas, Phoenix, Dallas/Fort Worth, Chicago O'Hare, Fort Myers and Fort Lauderdale. As the wildly successful Florida-based carrier continues to expand, many cities that haven't had much low fare service in the past, including MSP, have embraced its quirky and often irritating marketing strategies.

In addition to the Denver flights which will operate through November 6, 2013, Spirit is adding new service from Baltimore/Washington International Airport and Philadelphia to Las Vegas, as well as new Houston Bush International non-stop to Los Angeles International Airport. Spirit is known for 'insanely low fares', sometimes as low as $9 each way, but charges for checked and carry-on luggage, preferred seating, food and all beverages, boarding passes issued at the airport instead of on-line from the passenger's home, and has higher checked baggage fees for those who wait until airport arrival to check-in. In general, nearly everything that requires the services of a live Spirit employee, cost more.

With the new flight starting the spring, Denver will now be served from Terminal 1/Lindbergh by Delta, United and Frontier; and from Terminal 2/Humphrey by Southwest and Spirit.
