MIRAMAR, FL (September 24, 2014) - Everyone knows Cleveland rocks! Now Cleveland can save on air travel. Spirit Airlines (NASDAQ: SAVE) announced today Cleveland will be the 57th city to join its route network, with new service to eight cities. Service starts on January 15, 2015 to three cities, with three more starting February 5, 2015, and two more on April 16, 2015. Think of it - new flights to warmer locales coming just in time to escape the cold this winter and the lake-effect snow that comes with it, for a lot less money than on other airlines.
"Cleveland and Northeastern Ohio have endured high fares long enough," said Mark Kopczak, Vice President of Network Planning for Spirit Airlines. "Spirit's super low Bare Fares™, with Frill Control™ allows customers to choose only those extras they want to pay for and gives them the most control over their travel budget. By saving on travel, our customers have more money left over for when they get there."
Spirit's new flights will be available for purchase beginning Thursday, September 25, 2014.
