Spirit Airlines to Land at Houston Intercontinental

Spirit Airlines, an ultra low cost carrier, announced they will begin flights between Houston Intercontinental (IAH) and Dallas/Fort Worth International (DFW) starting on September 20, 2012. The airline will operate the flight 2x’s daily.

The carrier has built somewhat of a focus city at Dallas/Fort Worth International (DFW) allowing the airline to provide connections to six destinations, including:

  • Baltimore/Washington International (BWI)
  • Las Vegas (LAS)
  • Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport (IWA)
  • Tampa International Airport (TPA)
  • Toluca (Mexico City) via Lic. Adolfo Lopez Mateos Int’l (TLC)
  • Portland International Airport (PDX)

With the introduction of these new routes, they’ll soon be competing with Southwest Airlines head-on.  Southwest operates out of Houston’s Downtown Hobby Airport (HOU) but operates nonstop flights in many of these markets.

Houston Mayor Annise Parker, said, “The addition of more flights and low fares is always reason to celebrate.” Parker continued, “Bush Intercontinental is a thriving economic engine that continues to offer expanded flight opportunities. The addition of Spirit Airlines will give Houstonians new low-fare options and bring more visitors to our city”

Spirit’s Director of Sales, Scott Fisher, a Native Houstonian, commented, “We are excited to celebrate this Independence week by liberating Houstonians from high fares.” Fisher added, “We are committed to offering consumers the opportunity to save money on travel with the super low fares that our growing customer following has come to know and love.”
