Spirit Airlines is expanding its network again. The Florida-based ultra-low-cost carrier has just announced it will soon start serving Sacramento, its fifth Californian destination. In particular, Spirit Airlines will be offering passengers convenient, nonstop service connecting Sacramento International Airport (SMF) and McCarran International Airport (LAS) in Las Vegas, beginning June 20, 2019.
The carrier intends to offer three daily flights for its new Sacramento-Las Vegas route. Not only can travelers look forward to having several flight options between the two said cities, they can also gain access to plenty of connections to other Spirit Airlines destinations, such as Columbus, Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, Baltimore, New Orleans, and Philadelphia.
Besides the newly announced Sacramento-Las Vegas service, Spirit Airlines also recently revealed it would start serving serving Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) on June 20, 2019. The ultra-low-cost carrier will also offer three direct flights daily between Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) and McCarran International Airport (LAS) in Las Vegas.
From Las Vegas, travelers can go on and make connections to other destinations Spirit Airlines serves across the United States, such as Austin, Columbus, Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, Indianapolis, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, Baltimore, New Orleans, and Philadelphia.
In case you were wondering, Spirit Airlines currently serves three airports in California, namely Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Oakland International Airport (OAK), and San Diego International Airport (SAN).
Given the popularity of Las Vegas, Spirit Airlines' decision to add routes from Northern California and Southern California to Las Vegas is a logical one. The ultra-low-cost carrier has stated that Las Vegas is both a growth city and crew base for the airline. According to the airline, as of July of this year, Spirit Airline would have grown nearly 50 percent in Las Vegas compared to its capacity two years before.
