Spirit Airlines Announces Service to Three New Cities from Las Vegas

--$9 Introductory Fares* Available at www.spirit.com--

Miramar, Florida (June 24, 2011) – Spirit Airlines (Nasdaq: SAVE) this week announced non-stop service to three new cities from Las Vegas, including:
 
·         Oakland/San Francisco, California – two daily non-stop daily flights starting August 18, 2011, with increase to three daily non-stop flights on September 7, 2011
 
·         San Diego, California – two daily non-stop flights starting September 7, 2011, with increase to three daily non-stop flights on September 22, 2011
 
·         Portland, Oregon – two daily non-stop flights starting September 22, 2011
 
To celebrate, Spirit is offering $9 introductory fares* (each way based on round trip purchase) available today and tomorrow only at www.spirit.com.
 
“One year ago, Spirit Airlines was operating four departures a day to two destinations from Las Vegas. Spirit Airlines continues to expand service to bring great value but more importantly, additional seats to the Las Vegas market. We are very proud of our partnership and the announced additions to Spirit's schedule with 22 departures a day to eight destinations is good for the Las Vegas valley and great for its passengers,” says Elaine Sanchez, Public Affairs & Marketing Manager, McCarran International Airport.
 
“We are pleased to partner once again with Spirit Airlines,” said Cathy Tull, senior vice president of marketing for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. “Las Vegas is a popular destination for both leisure and business travelers, and these new flights provide those in Portland, Oakland and San Diego with another easy way to get here.”
