Spirit Airlines Expands Reach into California with Announcement of Flights to Burbank and Sacramento
Spirit Airlines will soon be bringing in ultra-low fares to California’s Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) and Sacramento International Airport (SMF) from Las Vegas this summer. Beginning June 20, the ultra-low-cost carrier will fly three times daily between Burbank and McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, and three a day between Sacramento and Las Vegas.
Spirit currently flies out of San Diego International Airport (SAN), Oakland International Airport (OAK), and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The new services to Las Vegas from Burbank and Sacramento will complement Spirit’s existing service from those airports. Burbank is also Spirit’s second airport destination in the Los Angeles area.
“We are excited to be expanding in the Golden State, bringing our low fares and signature service to the Hollywood Burbank Airport,” John Kirby, Spirit Airlines’ Vice President of Network Planning said in a press release. “Burbank becomes our second airport destination in the Los Angeles Basin, and enhances our service options for Tinsel Town Guests traveling to America’s Playground.”
Las Vegas is one of Spirit’s major hubs and a crew base for the airline. As of 2018, the carrier alone offers nonstop flights to 28 cities and averages approximately 55 departures a day from Las Vegas. The ultra-low-cost carrier is also one of the fastest growing carriers in Las Vegas and will have grown nearly 50 percent compared to its capacity two years ago by July 2019.
Although Las Vegas is already a highly popular destination for northern and southern California travelers, the entertainment hub also becomes a regional gateway for California passengers. From Las Vegas, Spirit destinations across the United States include Austin, Columbus, Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, Indianapolis, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, Baltimore, New Orleans, and Philadelphia. The ultra-low-cost carrier also began service to Indianapolis and Orlando from its Las Vegas hub this week.
