HOUSTON (CBS Houston) In an announcement from the Houston Airport System on Thursday, Spirit Airlines will offer nonstop service between Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and Orlando International Airport, beginning Thursday, Valentine’s Day.
“Houston leads the nation in the economic recovery and the Houston Airport System is delighted to add new nonstop flights to Orlando,” said Mario C. Diaz, Director of the Houston Airport System. “Bush Intercontinental welcomes the expansion by Spirit Airlines as we celebrate this increased capacity between Texas and Florida.”
Spirit’s Chief Marketing Officer Barry Biffle stated that Spirit airlines is happy to offer more options to travelers: “Spirit gives many consumers the opportunity to fly who otherwise couldn’t afford to do so – or they’re able to do so more often – by offering everyone the opportunity to take advantage of our ultra low fares and option to save by choosing only the add-ons they want,” Biffle said in a statement. “What’s not to love about getting where you want to go for less?”
Back in September, Spirit introduced its low cost fares with twice daily nonstop service to Dallas/Fort Worth; the airline then began daily nonstop service from Houston to both Chicago O’Hare and Las Vegas in October.
