Spirit Airlines will head back to Latin America from Orlando just in time for the holidays. The Florida-based carrier is re-launching six nonstop international routes. It marks the first time Spirit’s bright-yellow planes will fly internationally from Central Florida since border closures began in March.
Spirit plans to gradually reintroduce Latin American destinations from Orlando International Airport (MCO) throughout the month of December, beginning with service to Colombia and Honduras. Within weeks, the airline will add Mexico, Guatemala and El Salvador along with additional Colombian flights.
In the Caribbean, people travelling to Puerto Rico will have more options at the beginning of 2021. Spirit plans to reactivate its service to Aguadilla (BQN) once the airport re-opens in January. Daily flights to the island’s north-western tip will complement Spirit’s existing service to San Juan (SJU), which runs up to five times each day.
