Spirit Airlines is set to expand its operations in Puerto Rico during the 2023 summer season with the introduction of five new nonstop routes from San Juan to Atlanta, Hartford, Dallas/Fort Worth, Detroit, and Chicago O’Hare.

“Spirit Airlines has served the Puerto Rican community for more than two decades, offering affordable fares to connect family and friends in the United States. Puerto Rico is our number one destination in the Caribbean, with its rich history and culture, renowned beaches, rainforest and the world’s brightest bioluminescent bay,” said John Kirby, vice president of network planning for Spirit Airlines.

“We are continuing our growth in San Juan with five new nonstop routes, reaffirming our commitment to the island and making it even easier to travel more frequently,” Kirby added.
