Spirit Airlines Elevates the Guest Experience with New Enhanced Benefits and Industry-Leading Flexibility


Guests benefit from increased weight allowance for checked bags and no change or cancel fees

DANIA BEACH, Fla., June 4, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Spirit Airlines (NYSE: SAVE) today announced exciting new benefits for Guests that add value and provide greater flexibility. Travelers can now take advantage of the airline's first of many new milestones toward an enhanced Guest experience with more flexible policies. In addition to Spirit's recently launched no change or cancel fee policy, Guests can now enjoy:

  • Increased checked bag weight allowance to 50 pounds
  • Extended Future Travel Vouchers expiration to 12 months (for vouchers issued on or after June 3, 2024)

"Spirit has changed the game before and we're doing it again with this first round of initiatives that will lead the way to a new era of low-fare, high-value flying," said Matt Klein, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer of Spirit Airlines. "These enhancements provide each and every one of our Guests unparalleled flexibility and peace of mind, and it's just the beginning of our pursuit to make affordable travel easier and more seamless than ever."

No Change or Cancel Fees
Guests can book with confidence knowing that if their travel plans change, their ticket can too. Effective May 17, 2024, there is no fee to change or cancel a reservation on any Spirit flight. Travelers will only have to pay the difference in fare or receive a credit if the new trip is less expensive. This policy is among the best in the industry because it applies to every Guest.
