MIRAMAR, Fla., Jan. 29, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Spirit Airlines (NYSE: SAVE) is celebrating two decades of flying travelers between Cancun International Airport (CUN) and the United States today. The airline is commemorating the milestone by giving Guests More Go with limited-time anniversary fares on flights to Cancun for a tropical vacation. The offer is valid for travel to Cancun (CUN) from Feb. 7 – March 6, 2024*.

"For 20 years, we've been pleased to offer our Guests affordable, nonstop service to Cancun, making the popular beach destination more accessible and affordable with the opportunity to save on airfare while enjoying more of Cancun's tourist attractions," said John Kirby, Vice President of Network Planning at Spirit Airlines. "We're grateful to Cancun International Airport and our Guests in Southeast Mexico for embracing our business model and trusting us with their travels for the past two decades."

The airline is also offering members of its Free Spirit® loyalty program 1,500 bonus points on roundtrip flights and 750 points on one-way flights to and from Cancun.** Travel must be booked by March 15, 2024 at 11: 59 p.m. EST and flown by April 30, 2024. To earn even more bonus points, Guests can book their Cancun hotel or car rental through Spirit Vacations® and earn an additional 500 points.

Additionally, the Spirit Charitable Foundation commemorated the anniversary with a donation of $20,000 to Keeping Kids in School in Playa Del Carmen. The sizable donation will help remove the financial barriers that prevent many children in Mexico from gaining access to an education.

Spirit currently offers nonstop service from Cancun to nine cities in the United States: Baltimore (BWI), Chicago (ORD), Dallas (DFW), Detroit (DTW), Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Houston (IAH), Orlando (MCO), New Orleans (MSY) and Philadelphia (PHL). The carrier has further invested in Southeast Mexico through Spirit Vacations, which allows travelers to bundle and save with vacation packages on Cancun hotels, resorts and rental cars.
