Spirit Airlines adds flights out of Pittsburgh

Spirit Airlines announced Tuesday that a new nonstop service will start this spring between Myrtle Beach International Airport and Pittsburgh International Airport.

Non-stop service will go to Dallas/Fort Worth, Myrtle Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Las Vegas, Houston and Los Angeles.

Spirit Airlines is touching down in Pittsburgh, announcing this week a new slate of low-fare flights to seven destinations from the city's worldwide airport.

"The more affordable air service we can get out of key markets like Pittsburgh, the greater our growth potential", Dean said.

The airport authority sometimes grants subsidies to airlines that add new destinations. Previous year it gave $400,000 to WOW Air to add service to Iceland and $300,000 to Condor Airlines to add service to Frankfurt, Germany. It gave $28,493 to Allegiant Air to add service to Destin, Fla.

The familiar Pittsburgh colors of Spirit Airlines are coming to the Steel City in May.

The addition of a second daily flight to L.A.is important, Cassotis said.

Spirit will begin the L.A. flights July 13.

"Spirit now flies to five destinations from Arnold Palmer Regional Airport in Latrobe, including Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Myrtle Beach, putting those flights in direct competition with the new ones at Pittsburgh International about 63 miles away", the paper explained.

The press release says the daily, non-stop flights from MYR to PIT will begin May 25, and end in November.

Six of those destinations will have daily flights departing from the airport, while the Fort Lauderdale flight will only be three times a week. Flights to Orlando and Las Vegas start June 22. Neither Spirit nor airport officials were immediately available for comment. United Airlines offers seasonal service to San Francisco.

"Black and gold, well, yellow", said Kopczak as he handed the plane to Cassotis.
