Spirit Airlines plans to begin overseas services from Atlantic City (ACY) this fall with routes to Cancun (CUN) in Mexico and San Juan (SJU) in Puerto Rico.
The Florida-based carrier has also reaffirmed its commitment to launching the previously announced daily route between ACY and Miami (MIA) from Oct. 6. The expansion increases the ULCC’s network from the New Jersey airport to 10 destinations.
“We know people are ready to get out and travel, and non-stop flights to popular destinations make it easy to plan a quick getaway with plenty of sun and sand,” Spirit executive VP and CCO Matt Klein said.
Flights to CUN will start on Oct. 29, operating four times per week. The service to SJU starts on Oct. 31 and will be 3X-weekly. The latest schedules filed with OAG show that Spirit will become the sole operator of flights from Atlantic City to both Cancun and San Juan.
Spirit currently serves seven US domestic destinations from ACY, flying to Atlanta (ATL), Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Fort Myers (RSW), Myrtle Beach (MYR), Orlando (MCO), Tampa (TPA) and West Palm Beach (PBI).
