Spirit Adds New Bases in Miami and Atlanta, Expands in Mexico

Spirit Airlines has made two announcements in recent days, adding two bases in the United States and expanding in Mexico. The new bases for Spirit will be located in Miami and Atlanta. As for the Mexico expansion, Spirit is adding two routes out of Monterrey International Airport.

New Bases in Miami and Atlanta

Spirit Airlines has announced the addition of new Pilot and Flight Attendant bases at Miami International Airport (MIA) and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) for a total of nine crew bases across the network. The crew bases are projected to initially open this summer once advance preparations are finalized. Spirit expects to locate more than 100 Pilots and more than 200 Flight Attendants at each base initially.

Crew Bases, also known as Home Bases, are the various airport stations where commercial Pilots and Flight Attendants normally begin and end their duty periods. The new bases will complement Spirit’s existing crew bases in Atlantic City (ACY), Chicago (ORD), Dallas (DFW), Detroit (DTW), Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Las Vegas (LAS) and Orlando (MCO).

Spirit’s presence at MIA started in October 2021 with service to nine destinations and grew to a total of 30 nonstop domestic and international routes in January 2022. At ATL, Spirit currently ranks as the third largest carrier for number of Guests flown and operates nonstop flights to 19 destinations.

Mexico Expansion

Spirit will fly over the mountains of Northeastern Mexico for the first time this summer. Spirit Airlines announced two daily nonstop flights from Monterrey International Airport (MTY) to George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS), starting in June 2022.

Spirit initially entered Mexico in 2003 when its first flight landed at Cancun International Airport (CUN) and continued to invest in the country by adding new stations at Los Cabos International Airport (SJD) in 2012 and Puerto Vallarta International Airport (PVR) in 2021. This new MTY service is an expansion inland in addition to the popular beach destinations.

Spirit’s Austin service will provide the only nonstop flight between the two cities. In Houston, Spirit’s new Monterrey service complements a robust international network providing Houstonian’s affordable nonstop flights to seven international destinations, along with 17 domestic destinations.

“We’re excited about growing our international service from Texas with new daily nonservice from Austin (AUS) and Houston (IAH) to Monterrey, Mexico,” said John Kirby, Spirit Airline’s Vice President of Network Planning. “Whether traveling for leisure or to visit friends and relatives, Spirit Airlines continues to provide our Guests with More Go.”
