With passenger demand on the rise and vacation season underway, Spirit Airlines is increasing nonstop service from PHL, including the resumption of eight routes.
Following the implementation of COVID-19 travel restrictions and stay-at-home-orders, in May Spirit reduced its PHL service from 11 routes to just two (Fort Lauderdale and Orlando) due to almost nonexistent passenger demand. The airline averaged just one flight per day.
As travel and stay-at-home restrictions have eased and health and safety protocols have been implemented by airports and airlines, the public is beginning to return to air travel. To accommodate PHL passengers, Spirit is resuming nonstop service to Atlanta, Dallas-Fort Worth, San Juan and Myrtle Beach and increasing frequency to Fort Lauderdale and Orlando in June. In July, Spirit will continue to build its PHL network, restarting nonstop service to Detroit, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and New Orleans. With more frequencies, Spirit’s average daily flights from PHL will be 13 in July.
For the health and safety of its passengers and crews, Spirit has implemented several policies and protocols, including requiring passengers and Team Members to wear masks. Click here for more information on Spirit’s COVID-19 response.
