MIRAMAR, Fla., April 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- You survived another New England winter and now it's time to plan that well-deserved summer vacation. Spirit Airlines is bringing its ultra-low fares to Connecticut and Western Massachusetts just in time, with new nonstop flights from Hartford's Bradley International Airport (BDL) to the Myrtle Beach International Airport (MYR), Orlando International Airport (MCO) and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL). So whether you're looking for the ultimate golf getaway, a theme park adventure or sunny Florida beaches, head to www.spirit.com and find out how much you can save on summer travel.
"We are thrilled to deliver this nonstop service to two of the country's most popular summer destinations," said Mark Kopczak, Vice President of Network Planning for Spirit Airlines. "These news flights, with new service to Fort Lauderdale starting in June, give Hartford even more ultra-low cost options for summer travel."
"Spirit Airlines is a strong addition to Bradley's growing menu of direct flights," CAA Board Chairman Charles R. Gray said. "A continued mission of the Connecticut Airport Authority is for Bradley's travelers to love the journey through the airport and beyond. One way of doing that is by continuing to diversify Bradley's flight options, which is why we're very pleased to be welcoming Spirit to the Bradley family."
"The key to successful route development is a loyal customer base," CAA Executive Director Kevin A. Dillon, A.A.E., said. "The Myrtle Beach service has been frequently requested by our travelers and the additional frequencies between Bradley, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale will provide travelers with more options. It is our hope that these additions to our route structure will continue to encourage our travelers to come home to Bradley and choose our local airport over other airports."
