MIRAMAR, Fla., Feb. 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Austinites can afford More Go than ever before, thanks to the nation’s fastest-growing airline. Spirit Airlines (NYSE: SAVE) launched its first international service from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, the airline announced Wednesday, with more destinations and more signature low fares on the way.

The brightest planes in the sky are bound for the bright skies of Cancun, Mexico. Guests on Spirit’s first flight to Cancun International Airport (CUN) departed Wednesday morning with smiles and some yellow swag from the airline’s anniversary party. Next month, Spirit will add daily service to Nashville, Tenn. (BNA) and Newark, N.J. (EWR) on top of the four-times weekly service to CUN.

“This month marks Spirit’s one-year anniversary in Austin, and what better way to celebrate their success than with the launch of an exciting new year-round service to Cancun,” said Jacqueline Yaft, Executive Director of Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.
