Spirit® Airlines Kicks Off 2022 with a Salt Lake City Debut

MIRAMAR, Fla., Jan. 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Spirit Airlines (NYSE: SAVE) will soar above the scenic vistas of Utah for the first time this spring. The airline today announced its new service to Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC), offering travelers daily, nonstop routes to Las Vegas (LAS), Los Angeles (LAX), and Orlando (MCO). The new service marks the first time Spirit will serve the state of Utah, which boasts world-class outdoor recreation, spectacular landscapes and numerous options to experience the arts.

"We listen to our Guests, and they told us they wanted more exciting Western destinations to experience the great outdoors. This spring is a great time to launch service to Salt Lake City, The Crossroads of the West," said John Kirby, Vice President of Network Planning. "We're also excited to introduce our high-value travel proposition for our new Utah Guests looking for convenient non-stop flights to some of the nation's most popular leisure destinations."

Spirit will be the first new domestic airline to announce operations following the 2020 unveiling of The New SLC, a $4.5 billion airport rebuild project that provides an enhanced experience for Guests. The airline's presence at SLC increases competition and benefits local families seeking more options for affordable getaways.
