Spirit Airlines adds four daily routes to Newark
Summer travel is getting easier for customers booking to/from Northern New Jersey with the announcement of new nonstop flight options serving destinations spanning coast-to-coast. Spirit Airlines announced four new routes to Newark (EWR) with daily nonstop flights to Indianapolis (IND), Los Angeles (LAX), Oakland (OAK) and Pittsburgh (PIT).
As a bonus, Spirit will also add a temporary route to Louisville (SDF) allowing New Jersey customers easy access to the Kentucky Derby. The two SDF flights will only operate on May 5 and May 8.
“We know people are eager to travel this summer, and we’re excited to add new, high-value options for guests looking to visit friends and family in Northern New Jersey or those looking to affordable options for traveling from the Garden State across the country,” said John Kirby, vice president of network planning at Spirit Airlines.
The latest EWR route launches are part of Spirit’s ongoing investment in northern New Jersey. Spirit will offer 24 peak-day departures at EWR, doubling in size from 2019. After only six years in service to Newark, Spirit now ranks fourth among carriers by number of seats in Newark.
“As our domestic travel options continue to grow, we are excited to have Spirit expand its routes of service,” said James Gill, general manager of New Jersey Airports. “This helps keep Newark Liberty competitive as it provides business and leisure travelers with additional choices and greater flexibility in planning their trips.”
